I took a look at that screencast and I honestly couldn't see anything I'd have any use for..The only mail account I use is the hotmail one, and even then it exists just for the sole purpose of using my messenger. I do write some tasks on my calendar in Evolution but I don't want anyone else seeing what I've written there, nor do I really have any interest whatsoever in other people's calendar entries. I've never even heard of that mugshot thing, I don't use myspace and I have all my pictures either stored locally on my hard drive or in the finnish picture gallery website (www.irc-galleria.net). So, the only thing this thing would do for me is bring some more clutter on my desktop! Besides, to me it looks like they've just thrown a few apps together in a rather messy bunch..
