Google Talk Guru answers your very basic questions

Google is constantly coming out with new features that help the world find and sort information even better than before. The latest comes in the form of a bot that you can chat with on Google Talk. I suppose “chat” wouldn’t be appropriate, as it simply gives you facts when you ask questions relating to the weather, sports scores and a few other topics.

I actually find this feature to be a bit strange. Essentially this bot named Guru is taking the text you input, then running it through a regular Google search, and returning the same information you would get in your browser. I suppose this is handy if you’re signed into a dedicated messaging program and don’t want to open a browser. Otherwise, it just reminds me of the old novelty AIM bots that have been around for years.
