Just Released, SnapTalk 2.0 from Glass Bead Software: Chat Just Got
Even More Efficient!

SnapTalk 2.0 has brought chat to a new level of efficiency. Now you
can talk with office-mates, archive conversations, attach files, and
use instantaneous Quick-Replies to answer your colleagues with the
click of a mouse. In addition to efficiency, SnapTalk 2.0 keeps your
company=EDs conversations off the Internet making it reliable and
secure. For under $12/user there is no better way for Mac Users to get
their office connected! Other new features include an Auto-Reply
message setting, text styling, and time stamp, to see when the last
message was sent. A native OS X version will be available by the end
of Q1 2002.
