What he said!
As much as I wanted to like IBM Verse, I'm struggling to find a good reason to use this over Google or Microsoft or even Yahoo!'s offerings.
I think early adopters are not going to link it to a "work" account, probably prefer to try GMail first, so that was a bit of a problem there.
Oh the inconsistencies! Sometimes stuff opens in a new browser window/tab (going to Calendar), sometimes a new pop up window (new Calendar appointment), sometimes it's an on-page pop-up (compose new mail).
Trying to find the link to use it was a pain! Luckily I saved the original activation e-mail, else I would've never been able to get back to the page to login on a following day!
And yeah, it's lonely there....
