The folks at Techworld are having fun this morning making fun of a new "not email" system called "dmail" (for digital mail) which is basically a closed off system that only allows messages to pass between dmail users. In other words, just another closed garden. The Techworld explanation of the service is quite funny, including noting that there's already another product called Dmail out there, but the dmail folks insist there's no problem since Dmail is an email product, and they claim dmail isn't email. They also point out that the other Dmail uses a capital "D" so there absolutley couldn't be any trademark infringement (yeah, right). Techworld, as you might imagine, isn't that enthusiastic about dmail's chances.
