Zaarly? Really?

Posted: Updated:

I just got this notice about a new web application called Zaarly. It seems that right in your area, there are people selling things you want, and Zaarly can find them and their contacts for you (wait, didn't that used to be what the Yellow Pages was?) And then, if you want to sell something, you can post it and someone who wants it will contact you (but wasn't that what classified ads, which subsidized newspapers, did?) And Zaarly looks cool, and has a cleaver video and all, but what about Ebay and Linkedin and ... I think I need an app to organize all my apps. Or maybe just a phone book (do they make those any more?)
