Meanwhile, other start-ups like San Francisco's Xobni Corp., are trying to help people better organize and search the emails and personal-contact load they already have.
"These people are in pain," says Matt Brezina, the 26-year-old co-founder of Xobni, which has received $4.2 million in funding from venture capitalists. Xbni's product places a set of features on top of a custemer's email inbox, such as "profiles" of online contacts complete with photos, and quick links to set up appointments. The nin-person company says it has about 1000 globally testing the product - including salespeople, recruiters and marketing managers who use email frequently - and expects to release it broadly early next year."
