Yea, My wife is stuck on MSN because some of her family are stuck on it.

But its downright silly to be hyping a tech becuase its the best worst
thing your family can techincaly handle. Giventhe brainanians here wouldnt
it be a better thing to grab an open tech and make a FamilyIM, there has
got to be a niche biz for that.

Then again, many folks have made beau coup bank on the inability of users
to use more than .25% of thier mental capacity. So cool, lets all just use
dumbed down apps, help foster stupidism and give the corp$ market clout
