This is friggin' silly, so it will become the next huge thing,..............
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I think you hit the nail on the head, Neil. :)

Oh guys don't dig the service?? I for one would sign up TODAY if I was available from AT&T ! What's the down side? The monthly payment?? I'd want to sign up asap to register the name I want before its taken. The first part of the article is true I only know my current cell number, uselessly my old cell#, my house number (been the same for 32 years), a fiends phone number from high school that is no longer in service, the local dominos (it's only 2 diff #'s repeated), and 911.
It's the same premise and tinyurl.com, Facebook.com/WHATEVERYOUWANT (MySpace added the same feature after a couple or years of being popular), do you guys want me to keep going??? It just makes it easier to remember someone's phone number without having to write it down imagine someone is giving you a number and you have to find a pen and paper fast or you tell your friend "turn on your cell and type the following number but don't call" (I know that situation comes up once a week for my friends and I).
Another big plus is if you can actually change your ** name any time, that allows you to anonymously give out your number (ex. A girl giving her # to a guy at a club and the guy ends up calling every 5 mins) etc etc etc!!!!!!!
What about for a business? Need to call Robert at hothardware? Dial **hardware, need assistance with your uverse tv but can't find the 1800#? **uverse....
I think it's a brilliant service that should be an option for all cell and land lines.
Actually her is the best example of all!!!!! DNS SERVERS!!!!! Imagine if you had to type in 18.104.22.168 instead of hothardware.com? Now imagine memorizing the IP of set website you want to go to?..... Now imagine people with contact books with hundreds or even thousands (business's people) of numbers.....
This service is not silly at all but greatly needed.
LOL yet another example if its use.... Here in Los Angeles in the San Fernando Valley area we ran out if phone numbers and had to create a new area code. Not only would area codes no longer be needed (or having to dial 1 before the whole number) but theoretically numbes can go from 10 digits to 11 allowing of more possible numbers but without being any harder to memorize.
