New cutting edge email technology - betas

I've come across 2 new technologies - both in beta for now.

Xobni GuyThe first called Xobni (inbox backwards) you can sign up for a beta - and by filling in a survey get into the priority queue. I am still waiting for my invite so I have not been able to test this yet but it looks very interesting.

Here's the blurb about it.

Xobni is the Outlook plug-in that saves you time finding email conversations, contacts and attachments.

After a quick install, you'll see the new Xobni toolbar appear in Outlook - and suddenly information will become much easier to find. When a new email arrives, the sender's full communication history appears in the Xobni sidebar, including past conversations, attachments and contact details. Xobni also includes a blazing fast email search tool.

Watch our demo video, or read below to see how Xobni improves your email productivity. Or better yet, sign up to try the beta right now.
