Can't be bothered? AirRun perfect for lazybones

When you're too lazy to do anything yourself, AirRun hooks you up with people eager to make a buck.

If you can't be bothered to go on a burger run or pick up toothpaste at your local store, AirRun can hook you up with people who'll do it for you.

Described as ideal for those who are "lazy or unemployed," AirRun is another peer-to-peer commerce service like Gigwalk, TaskRabbit, and Zaarly.

The free app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch is location-based service, with "seekers" looking for people to do things for them and "runners" who take on jobs for cash. Runners build reputations on seeker reviews.

Only people in the same community can see posts about jobs. They can be anything from changing adult diapers to standing in line at the DMV to ridding a yard of snakes.

As this vid explains, seekers decide how much they're willing to pay for services. Payment can be made with cash, checks, credit cards, and PayPal.

Launched in April, AirRun has seen about 4,000 downloads so far. What do you think? Would you use it?
