Google Guru-Search from Gtalk!

Google Talk Guru is an experimental service that allows people to get information like sports results, weather forecasts, definitions etc via chat. It works on many popular chat applications that support Google Talk.Google Guru is actually a bot which returns the search results typed in Google Talk chat window.

To start using Google Talk Guru:
1. Sign into a chat client that supports Google Talk
2. Send a chat invitation to 
3. Find guru in your contact list and send chat queries to guru using the examples below:

Sport scores:score arsenal
Weather:weather Nairobi
Calculate:123 * 45
Currency:120 KES to USD
Definition:define laptop
Translation:translate earth to French
Web result:web Mount Kenya
Help:help translate

Based on the hugely popular Google SMS service, this one is not as good , but still it's fun getting search results while you chat.(from the Google Guru itself ! :P )
