    One reason I intensely dislike Zuckerberg? He’s a freaking liar. “This is not an e-mail killer.” Hello. They’re giving 500+ million users [the option of] facebook.com E-MAIL addresses. There’s NO WAY they don’t think they’re going to pull several million teens off of Gmail or Yahoo or MSN. Sure, they’re not trying to kill enterprise Outlook users, but that doesn’t make it any less of a killer of some uses of e-mail. The entire presentation reeks of this. The multiple denials of this being a “Gmail killer” seem suspect at best.

    And this is from someone who doesn’t see myself using the new product. Though I can see how the “social graph filter” feature would be very compelling to many, many people. That’s why I think it’s disingenuous to say it never crossed their minds that this could “kill” (and/or take major share from) traditional e-mail. Especially since many features of it are a ripoff of Gmail’s priority inbox and Google Wave.

    I seem to have caught a cold, which is making me cranky as all hell. Also? (NOTE: the following is so full of World of Warcraft geeking it’s not even funny.) Thrall seems to have wandered off from Orgrimmar, thus making [For The Alliance!] impossible to achieve for the next few weeks. Normally I don’t care what happens within the Horde, but I joined a PUG doing For The Alliance! today and it was disappointing to have missed him. Especially since I’ve never done a raid before.

    On the other hand, we easily downed the other three and had a lot of fun. Thanks random Cenarius folks!
