Kozmo Reincarnated As Diaper Delivery Service

from the we'll-be-right-over-again dept

Back in the heyday, Kozmo.com was a part of an era of convenience funded largely by ambitious VCs. Though it certainly was nice to have DVDs and orange juice delivered within the hour, Kozmo’s refusal to charge delivery fees and overexpansion doomed it to be one of the dotcom bubble burst poster children. Well, considering 2005 is being lauded as the new 1999, it’s fitting that they’re back at it again; some former Kozmo employees have started a new one-hour delivery service focusing this time on the needs of time-strapped new parents. Sounds like the new MaxDelivery has taken some lessons to heart from its experience with Kozmo. Once again, they’ve started in New York, which is a good thing considering the population density of delivery-addicted New Yorkers. And this time around, they’re charging $4.95 for delivery for orders under $50. I hope they also have cool messenger bags — I’d love to pick one of them up on eBay in about a year.

Re: Re: Women's Belongings Service

No no…his sisters don’t visit his appartment…most women of the female gender avoid it like the plague.

This is the stuff he stole from the downstairs laundry and he just figured out its not his size.

Its simple…sneak back down and return the stuff in the dryer.

Or if you stained them…spring for a wash.

He can’t really order them to get their stuff out of ‘his’ apartment: They’re the ones paying the rent while he’s been sleeping on the couch and using their AOL account for years. Were it not for a deathbed promise they made to their mom to Take Care of Jimmy, he’d be sleeping on a park bench right now and springing for his own medication.
