C'mon, you'd love it.
Not having to jump over to another browser session just to pull up and check Gmail, suffering the lethargic woes of yet another lumbering SaaS connection?
Not having to watch that Gmail Firefox browser tab "Loading" endlessly while your digital life slowly passes you by?
Yeah, that's what I thought.
Well, you lazy putz, wait no more because the Facebook "Fmail" client is here.
I checked it out this morning and it works just fine.
I was able to check mail, reply to mail, etc., all right there from within the Fmail Facebook app.
It's a small, mashed-up world after all, and man does it feel good to be Fmail lazy.
On the subject of mashups, our own Sandy Carter and Robert LeBlanc will be mashing it next week with some major SOA-related announcements at the Gartner IT Symposium in Orlando.
If you don't have your own Mickey Mouse pass to Gartner, worry not, the IBM Webcasters are here to save the day.
You can check out the "Accelerating Business Agility with SOA" webcast right here next Tuesday at 11:00 AM EDT.
Meanwhile, keep that feed reader tuned in to your IBM RSS feeds for more breaking SOA news.
