I don't think it'd become extinct. Where I work, it's the primary source of communication where cell phones aren't appropriate. Email is so convenient too because you don't have to check it right then. And in the case of annoying people, you can pretend you never got it.

I think they'll continue to see a reduction of letters, but not completely out-of-business. They still provide a good service and are used frequently to deliver packages to areas where those little brown trucks and those white ones with -Ex on the side won't deliver. However, I'd like to see your facts on the statement you've made about them being gone.

Instant Messaging is NOT an E-Mail replacement, nor was it ever meant to be one. Same can be said for every other technology they spout off here.
