In an unprecedented act of journalistic hubris, USA Today last week lumped Booze Mail together with (of all things) Zombies! Classifying such apps as “inane,” the article went on to describe Booze Mail as a “classic example” of the genre. Well, USA Today, this means war. Expect to see a round of Prune Juices in your inbox any minute now!

1. Jessica Guynn, Los Angeles Times:
They came up with the idea of enabling Facebook users to send drinks — a cold beer, vodka martini or something fictional from “Harry Potter” or “Star Trek” — to their friends. In two months, Booze Mail has… served 50 million drinks…
2. Justin Smith, Inside Facebook:
Unlike most experimental apps, Booze Mail took off: it’s currently the 15th most actively used application on Facebook, with over 300,000 daily users and 3,000,000 total installations.
3. Jeff Nolan, Venture Chronicles:

Unlike sites like MySpace, Friendster, or FaceBook, Renkoo assumes you have a life. And that you already have real-life, offline friends. To top it all off, it encourages you and your friends to meet in real life, offline.
So now the only thing left to do is agree on what to do, as well as the when, where, and how. If email, instant messenger, text, or the combination of all three is too much of a hassle to set things up, you might want to let Renkoo handle the unniceties.
