This final note on the way out today in which the phrase “there’s an app for that” finally means something.

A new startup called Airpaper wants to spare its customers the pain and heartache of layers of bureaucracy and wasted time.

It’ll file paperwork and make whatever calls are necessary to follow up.

Its first service? Cancelling Comcast subscriptions.

You give ’em five bucks, fill out a form and they do the rest.

Totally worth it.
