Goodbye, Tello. Welcome to the DeadPool.

Tello, a complicated company with a complicated product around “presence” (letting people find you when you want them to, and not when you don’t), has quietly disintegrated.

The company, which was founded by Jeff Pulver, Craig McCaw, former Apple CEO John Sculley and others, had a media blitz when it launched fourteen months ago. Sappy coverage appeared from a star struck lineup of journalists. See the articles from the WSJ and Business Week, among others. Our launch coverage is here.

Anyway, it’s gone now, a proud entrant into the TechCrunch DeadPool.
