Version number is a rocket science for Chrome users?

At least Google seems to think so. Take a look at any of the Chrome download pages here or the Beta download page here. Nowhere we see the version numbers. So unless you download a version and install it you won't know which version are you going to use!
Neat huh? Considering the fact that most of the Chrome users are early technology adopters and have switched from Firefox (which seems to give an overdose of versions!) this is moronic in my opinion.
There are other and better ways to keep your homepage clean but not specifying version numbers? I am not sure!

Gtalk and Twitter integration. Anyone?

I think before we woke up to Twitter, status messages in GTalk were (and are still are) the easiest way to spread a message, show off some geeky/cheesy/funny/wise quote or post your blog link for others to see without pushing it!

Now my Twitter is connected to my Facebook and when I post anything on Twitter, my Facebook status is updated.

But I still post blog/photo links in my gtalk status message and so do many of my contacts. So I was thinking yesterday if there is some mechanism which would let me post to Twitter as well. Just imagine, how cool it will be. I write something in Gtalk status message and that is posted on twitter and that goes to Facebook!

Now does Google provide an API which would let export/import status from GTalk status? Or do you know any such mechanism?
