Ooof, I'm not sure how I feel about this. On the one hand, as many have said, lots of potentially useful applications, like letting your GM know you're running late to raid or various other things.On the other hand, I already play this game enough. At some point, it behooves me to stop thinking about the game, stop having access to the game, and let something else have command of my attention for a while. To have 24 hr access to the game, in some form or another, even without my computer? The next logical step seems to be the .Hack//sign approach and just get sucked into the game completely.I'm sure this is fine for some people, but I'm definitely going to try to avoid this as much as possible if it happens.

Amen to that. I'm really not liking this direction the game seems to be taking, even if there are some positive benefits to these new features they're coming up with. I'm "plugged in" 24/7 enough as it is for work, there is no way in hell I'm letting WoW take over my life to that degree. I've already got people feeling butthurt because I refuse to add them to RealID, and that's IN the game. If I want to keep in touch with people outside of the game, those people have a million ways to contact me that don't involve WoW.More power to anyone who would utilize this and find it useful, but I think I'm sitting this one out.

It looks like every MMO is going this way. Star Wars: The Old Republic has already announced DLC content, and they're not even in open beta yet.
