Share your Sidebar

Today we launched Google Desktop 3.0 with even more integration with Google Talk. In the last release you could dock Google Talk in the Sidebar. Now you can share items from your Sidebar with friends. Try it out by dragging and dropping any item from your Sidebar onto your Google Talk friends list. The item will show up in their Sidebar or will be sent as an IM if they don't have Google Desktop installed. This functionality is also exposed to panels via our Sidebar API, you can even write one using Javascript. As a sample, we're happy to announce the first multiplayer Sidebar game: Tic Tac Toe. We look forward to seeing some of the cool Sidebar panels that developers will write (chess anyone?).
