Google(talks) to PSTN

Google Talk is making new friends with the PSTN networks. Splinter.NET has launched a new service that allows GTalk users to make calls to old fashioned phones and mobile networks from their client. In other words, the kind of functionality that already exists in Yahoo, MSN and AOL clients. The set-up for this service is pretty simple. Add user, and you get a tiny credit from the company, and you can fill up the account using PayPal, and then send a message – call 212.555.xxxx. The system calls back you PC and you are connected. This seems pretty simple, though not as good as click to call in say AOL or MSN.
