Oddpost Eaten by Yahoo!

Well, it was bound to happen. Someone had to do it, at least it wasn't Microsoft. Tonight, the announcement was made that Yahoo! has purchased Oddpost. Oddpost, for those of you who are new here, is an insanely cool web mail service. That's an understatement, it really is a full-featured email client and RSS reader that just happens to be accessible with Internet Explorer.

In any case, congratulations to the Oddpost team...I hope this works out better than the eGroups aquisition - went from being a great list service to a huge billboard, but we'll see. They sound like they have some big plans, so I really hope it works out for the best.
