[nerdox post] Xobni: Friendster for your Outlook

My Outlook’s on steroids. Seriously.

If you’re like any other IT yuppie, then my guess is that the bulk of your time is spent writing emails, responding to emails, classifying your emails and yet later, still checking your email client if there’s anything you missed. If your work revolves around your Outlook, then this freeware will do you wonders. Or entertain you, at least.

What’s exactly so wonderful about Xobni, you ask? It’s not that it indexes your inbox and enables email searching at Google-pace. It’s not being able to draw stats about your email and email buddies, such as who are your top 10 correspondents, the top 10 people who respond to you the fastest, even your peak email hour/day/week/month [according to Xobni, 11 pm Tuesdays = hell for me]. It’s not the profile sidebar that enables you to see each contact, along with your common friends, his email time-habits, your threads and all the attached files in your emails. It’s actually the fact that no matter how shamelessly nerdy you get, it just hooks you in, making you visualize your stats over and over, and you just can’t wait to tell all your email-slaved friends about it.

One downside though — it’s only for Outlook. Well, never were friends with Notes anyway.
