By now, you’ve probably read about our new partnership with the post office. If you haven’t, you can read about it here.
We’re thrilled to partner with the postal service, an organization that works tirelessly to keep the American public connected, and a model of efficiency within the US Government. This partnership draws on both groups’ strengths: OpenDNS’ ability to quickly connect you to what you’re looking for, and the postal service’s ability to deliver goods rapidly to even the most remote corners of the country.
If you’re an OpenDNS Basic user in the United States, you can try out the new service for free today, simply by searching for something you’d like delivered, followed by the ZIP code you’re in at the moment.
If you’re feeling hungry in Manhattan, for example, try typing “falafel.10021” into your Internet browser’s address bar. Minutes later, your mailman (or mailwoman), will deliver a delicious Middle Eastern meal right to your doorstep. Not interested in falafel? You can get some pizza in San Francisco: “pizza.94107.”
Give the new service a try, and let us know what you think in the comments below. All deliveries are free on April 1, so there’s no risk. And with enough support from OpenDNS users, the postal service may continue Saturday service.
