That idea LinkedIn had about inserting your contacts' career profiles into your Apple email? It's already dead.

LinkedIn is killing its Intro service—a function designed to display your contacts' LinkedIn profiles directly in Apple Mail messages. LinkedIn launched Intro last fall, not even four months ago; the company gave no explanation for its demise.

Though Intro is shutting down, people will still be able to use Rapportive, an email service that displays correspondents' contact information on Gmail and which powered the Intro service.
