Google eyeing operations in Malaysia

January 30, 2008 Leave a comment

Web search engine giant Google is interested in setting up operations in Malaysia, citing the country’s technology infrastructure and strategic location, newspapers reported on Sunday. Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said Google has started discussions with Malaysia’s Multimedia Development on establishing a base in the country.

“They want to make their presence felt in Malaysia. It will be a big boost for our ICT industry,” he told reporters after meeting Google Chief Executive Eric Schmidt on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Abdullah said Malaysia ranked as the top users of Google in Southeast Asia, which was another reason why it would make sense to use the country as a base for its operations. In Asia, Google has offices in China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan.

Gmail welcomes your AIM friends.

AIM in Gmail

AIM in Gmail

Now you can talk to your AIMĀ® friends using an integrated chat list right inside Gmail.

Gmail chat now offers the option to sign in to your AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) account to chat with your AIM buddies from Gmail. Your AIM buddies will populate your Contacts list, and are searchable just like your Google Talk contacts.

Chatting with your AIM buddies is easy — just click on a name in your chat list, and start typing.

Note that an AIM account is required to use this feature. AIM in Gmail is not a Google Talk and AIM federation; it’s the ability to sign in to your AIM messaging account from Gmail. Gmail uses Open AIM to provide this feature.
