Silicon valley has now given a $250M valuation to an email client with keyboard shortcuts.

No really.

And it is so much fast because... wait for it... it caches things locally and isn't delivered as a webpage.

I've now come full circle on this.

I realize that the real value is that they've set up a system that is basically a trap to get other VC's login details to their email. And a plausible reason to download and parse all of their email.

They've basically made an very efficient fishing attack on VCs by using "exclusivity" and a high price.

I think that I support this?
