Xobni Adds Integration with Facebook, Hoover's, and Yahoo Mail

The last time we looked at beloved Outlook plug-in Xobni, it had added LinkedIn integration to its already impressive list of capabilities. Well, there's more integration goodness to report: Xobni users can now search their Yahoo Mail accounts, view Facebook profile data, browse Hoover's company profiles, and instantly initiate Skype chats and calls.

At the risk of sounding like Chandler from Friends, could Xobni be any cooler? I don't know what else to say about the product (which remains free, amazingly) other than this: If you're an Outlook user, you're nuts if you don't use Xobni. Peep the above video to see it in action. Meanwhile, Xobni's blog has more dirt on the new stuff. [via AppScout]
