It’s not often I go ‘wow!’

I found the ZYB site while strolling through del.icio.us the other day and I’ve just tried it. I’m amazed.

It lets you back up your contacts and calendar to a website and then encourages you to connect with your contacts in a community-style way. I’m ignoring the last bit because I think I’ve reached my capacity on communities and struggle to keep on top of the ones I’ve already signed up to. However, it’s the first bit that amazed me.

The site makes it really easy to find your exact model of phone, then it sends an application to your handset by text message. The phone automatically installs it (after the usual arse-covering ‘are you sure you want to do this?’ message) and when you run it, you see your data being uploaded onto the website and you can view it all within seconds.

My ghast was utterly flabbered. I love it when stuff just works. That’s the future, baby!

See ZYB for yourself.
