Want To E-Mail Oprah? Type Carefully
MARY LOUISE KELLY, host:
Good morning. I'm Mary Louise Kelly.
Oprah ended her final show yesterday by giving out her e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. That may come as a relief to the Norwegian Web browser company Opera, which over the years had been receiving emails meant for Oprah. The company revealed in a blog that it's tried to answer each email personally. For example, it responded to a nine-year-old's request for Hannah Montana tickets by recommending the punk band NOFX instead.
