Not a concern of mine as I always send people links via email
What if one is in a busy train, elevator, and someone urgently needs a URL? I guess there are many places one might get stuck. Suppose one gets a call from an important lead, someone who has a mobile phone and is waiting to key in the URL? and say for some reason their Email client or yours is stuck?
Suppose one is in a third world country where people don't have their emails configured over their mobile phones? Or, there could be some super busy person who dislikes Mobile Phones but is around a computer with internet? I know an actor who has publicly said he does not carry an mobile phone with him..
Another point. The URLs need to be simple and something that can be easily recollected. Suppose they need to be used in a print campaign? In these situations example.com/sportscar like URLs those that are short and *rational* may be useful.
