The great email harvest

Whilst searching for great apps, I am regularly encountering the landing page with almost no details on it other than something along the lines of "great app coming soon, please leave your email adress". Duh. Ok, let me surrender me email address to whomever in the hope you may have something interesting and promise not to pass it on to spammers, assuming that you're not spammers yourselves.

In fact, if you are a spammer, what better way to harvest email addresses than to simply set up a web 2.0 app beta home page promising great wonders will be unveiled in due course!

There must be a better way such as a trusted third party service which will notify those expressing an interest of the beta apps launch.
