Look, I spend a lot of time online and like drooling over the latest high-tech toys as much as the next guy. But I also realize that there are an awful lot of stubbornly low-tech folks out there who remain convinced this whole email thing is just another passing fad.
Which is precisely what makes this new goPostal iPhone application so cool. Once you download the free app from the iTunes Store, you’ll be able to shoot photos with your iPhone’s built-in camera, add your personal message and an address, and send the image as an actual full-color postcard via good old-fashioned snail mail. If you don’t have an iPhone yet, you can also use the service from your computer by visiting this page on the company’s website.
Best of all each postcard costs just $1.29 including postage, which makes this personalized service comparable to the generic store-bought cards you’ve been sending for years. Neat.
