Ready. Fire. AIM! (6.0)

I know, the title is corny, forgive me. But AIM 6.0 (beta) is here. For AIM fans, you don't want to miss this. The new version is compatible with Vista (although you don't have that yet...it'll continue to work with Windows 2000 and XP), and includes group instant messaging, the ability to send offline messages, and conversation logging. AIM (and other IM apps) is not just for kids. It's become an important social and business tool for adults, too. It fits nicely between a phone call, a text message, and an email. It's instant (hence the name), and it's convenient. You can dowload it here.
