What's coming out next...

Folks from Zimbra, a new e-mail startup that's been getting some blog buzz, came by my office today to show me a preview of the product they plan to launch next week. It is e-mail software that is integrated right into your Web browser and works in tandem with other Web applications, so you don't have to go back and forth between e-mail, your browser, and other software. As president and CTO Scott Dietzen puts it, "E-mail becomes one and the same with the Web experience. We are trying to merge these two."


Sounds like pretty cool stuff. Then again, I'm reminded of this story:

Those distracted by incoming email and phone calls saw a 10-point fall in their IQ - more than twice that found in studies of the impact of smoking marijuana, said researchers.


Are we really helping people communicate better or are we just giving them a new bowl?

  1. I think that this innovation will be a hit. For some months, a lot of bloggers have been asking if such thing is possible. Now we have it right on our doorsteps.
