Fmail Isn’t As Dirty As It Sounds

Okay, I’ll admit it. Though 30 is supposed to be the new 20, I got old and out of touch really fast. I don’t get Emo music*; I don’t know what Heelys are; and I don’t get why you need a Facebook app to check your Gmail.

But it’s out there, and it’s called Fmail, which sounds like something dirty – the 21st Century Web 2.0 version of a booty call.  

Mashable has the details, but doesn’t say why you just don’t go to Gmail in another tab – unless it has something to do with this generation’s sudden proficiency with its thumbs.

(Don’t be gross. I’m talking about mobile computing, texting and video games. I used to be a thumb-wrestling champ, but the kids these days with their round-the-clock thumb training are scary. No way I’m getting into a thumb-ring with any of them without a pointer-tag-team handicap – betcha I still kill at Mercy, though.)

Anyway, Fmail does everything Gmail Lite does, only with a lame name. It also makes me wonder, in the midst of this Facebook application hysteria, if developers are double-checking to be sure what they name their app isn’t already being used by someone else.

"Fmail" doesn’t seem all that popular as a product name (for obvious reasons I think – it flows off the tongue like a muffled sneeze). Fmail.com doesn’t look like it’s being used for anything remarkable, but there does seem to be a Dutch company that’s been working on the Fmail idea for a while.

 

*Admittedly, ten years ago I was jamming out to Nirvana, STP and the Counting Crows, what my fiancee calls "pre-mo" music. But I still say my whiny, self-destructive, suicidal rockers kick the crap out of these pathetic formulaic slacker pansies only half-committed to reviving Flock of Seagulls hairstyles between Digg-mobbing and Halo 3 sessions. So there. When you quit crying, watch this and laugh about it.
