  • These days it seems almost unreal to live without email! It’s amazing how it’s become almost like a necessity in just… 30 years. But wow at the post office, seeing email as a threat way back in the 70’s!

    • Yeah, the email has grown at a very fast rate, no one now uses postal service any more. Postmen now need to find another job! 🙂

  • Seriosly.. Email has grown insanely fast. I hardly ever use regular mail anymore.

  • Email has become more to an online free files storage system to me rather than a communicating tool. We have Skype or MSN for communication. People no longer send emails unless they want to keep them for future access.
