    Live or Jive?

    Advertisement



    I've got both. Any thoughts on what's the better program, or any advantages going with one over the other.

    JiveTalk obviously has the edge for providing IM for a variety of platforms, including Google, Yahoo and Hotmail/Live. And you can change the color of your LED for alerts!

    The new Windows Live Messenger, however, looks pretty swank, and has more smileys.

    Any other features that make one more desireable than the other?

    Jive if you use all the messengers. If you only use Lve then there is no need for Jive.

    Well, if you need to use more than one messenger, I recommend sticking with JiveTalk to keep things simple. If you just want to use WLM I suggest just using the one created by RIM. It's very neat and tidy. It also integrates well like all other RIM products. I think the features are about the same. Both support file sharing, etc... I guess I would just keep using both to figure out which you like better. I know JiveTalk can be a little heavy on the battery, so there's always that to consider.

    Ok, found another really neat feature with Live .... it actually integrates your convesation into the message box (similar to BB Messenger) so if you don't have it open, it shows up like a message. Once you click into it, it launches into the chat room.

    Very nice.

    Where can I get RIM's copy of WLM for an 8100? Any push in the right direction would be appreciated.
