Google Catalogs: The end of catalogs clogging up the mailbox?

Google Catalogs: The end of catalogs clogging up the mailbox?. I never want to receive another Pottery Barn Baby & Bath or whatever it’s called again…

It’s been live for almost 2 years now. Any less mail so far?

Really? Ha ha. I’d never seen it. No, no less mail. Drat!

When this came out a couple years back, I kept seeing a link to it on my front page of Google, and others never saw it at all. Whether or not the catalog link showed up in your google front page depended on some random IP number assigning (and if you’re using toolbar, well you’d never see it), and perhaps some “I’m in Canada or out of the U.S.” info. It was weird. Thank goodness for a direct URL I could email out, ‘cause people thought I was hallucinating.
