Yahoo, Microsoft tie message knot

July 13, 2006

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.
