I am excited about today’s launch of Brewster, despite it being iPhone only for the moment. Last week we spent time cleaning out the attic of our old house in the burbs (which my brother-in-law is taking over). In a box I discovered an old Palm Pilot. It was the most visible reminder that electronic address books have essentially not changed in almost 20 years. For instance, I find it stunning that when I add a contact to my Android address book and try to add an email address it doesn’t autocomplete based on my existing gmail correspondence. In fact even the very idea of manual contact maintenance now seems quaint. Brewster instead lets you wire up the sources of contact data and then does the work for you. You can read more about it on the USV blog, the Brewster Blog, and the New York Times.
