Courier mail is far far slower than email or telegrams (for long
distance, at least). I've just watched the first 20 minutes of the
presentation and there doesn't seem to be anything new, it's just
combining existing stuff in a fancy way. It's a great app, and I may
well use it, but it isn't going to change the world. It's part of an
incremental progression, it's not a paradigm shift.
