Google talk vs Skype Part2

I've sadly neglected this weblog time for a bit of updating. Firstly I've now recorded several interviews on Googletalk and on Skype (computer to computer) Here are my thoughts.
a) Googletalk is more stable, but it sounds as though it has a narrower frequency response
b) Skype has a better frequency response, and better sounding codecs, but it's less stable and it's compression, or what sounds like it,  can bring up background noise.

So it's really a case of horses for courses. However, I've not tried recording over low bandwidth connections with Googletalk, whereas I have with Skype which may be a decisive factor for some users.
