Have you ever wanted to send an email to a friend, and they have only a few seconds to read it and poof it is gone. They would think what happened. What happened to the message? Who send this? The email will self- destruct in 60 seconds!
Burn Note takes an incredibly simple premise and executes it simply. You write a message on the site, you enter the email address or email addresses of the people you want to send the message to; you configure your settings — the length of time your recipient will be able to read the message, whether or not he or she will be able to copy and paste, etc. — and you hit send. From here, Burn Note fires off an email with a link to your message on the Burn Note website; from the time, your recipient clicks the link, he or she has 60 seconds to read your message (60 seconds being the default), after which time the message disappears from Burn Note’s servers and leaves the Internet forever.
The default message view flashes a few words of your message at a time, and the intervals are much too quick to read with any comprehension. When you receive a new Burn Note, it currently comes from a sender called “notice”; having the option to change the sender ID to your own email address, for example, would help immensely.
