Yahoo, Microsoft tie message knot

Good news on the IM front…now if only they could get together with eBay and link in to Skype as well, from the BBC:

Users of the Yahoo and Microsoft instant messaging programs can now contact each other directly.

The two firms have released software that ties the two networks into a huge community of 350 million users.

The trial software allows people to swap text messages but will eventually let people talk to each other too.
