Instant Web-Based Chatrooms

June 9, 2006

This one’s a quickie, bumped into yesterday and found it pretty neat. It’s basically a web-based Ajaxy chat rooms that you can create instantly, and invite some friends who aren’t using the same Instant Messaging system as you do (I’m using MSN Messenger, many of my friends are using Yahoo and/or others). Best of […]

Google has just released Google Page Creator Beta, a free online tool that lets you create web pages, WYSIWYG style. Google said that they’re giving us the chance to play around with Google Page Creator even though it’s not yet fully baked, and they’re counting on us to send them our feedback and suggestions.

I first heard about Ma.gnolia last year, by that time they’re still on development, and haven’t launched their website just yet. Yesterday while browsing around my, I’ve found this and decided to give it a click. What do you know, they’re off and running now! I’ve played around with it, and the first difference […]

How many times you’ve turned into the radio, trying to sit back and relax to some of your favorite tunes or genre of music? The thing is, not all the music that the station plays really fit your style, and changing the frequency or channel just kills the whole point of relaxing. With Pandora, you […]

ViewMyCurrency Firefox Extension

February 17, 2006

I’ve always done my currency conversion either using a standalone application, or visiting XEUCC, which is quite a hassle. Today while reading downloadsquad, Jordan posted a very useful Firefox extension, ViewMyCurrency. ViewMyCurrency is a Firefox extension that I wrote to automatically convert web pages with foreign currencies into my own currency. It recognises many major […]

Zooomr is a bit new (at least to me), but it’s really fun. Although many will most probably compare it to flickr, which is not a bad thing; similar user interface makes it easy to learn how to use the site. And there surely are some extra features such as signing in using your different […]

Carbonmade is quite new, but I really like the idea. It’s a simple online portfolio application, where you can easily put up your works with no HTML knowledge necessary. And if you currently do not have an official website to put up your works, you use this to showcase some, if not all, of your […]

SketchSwap is an online sketching toy, you draw something on the screen and, after submitting, get a random sketch in return. Kinda like File-Swap, but in my opinion, much more fun! And they approve every single sketch submitted before it can be received by others, so you shouldn’t see anything that shouldn’t be seen. I […]

A Huge F Word Spotted in Yorkshire, UK

February 11, 2006

I’m sure you all have heard of the Flying Car in Perth, spotted on Google Map. The Register threw up quite a list of possible explanations for exactly what that object might be. But this one is just hilarious: a big F word down on a corn field in Billingley, Yorkshire. Most of my friends […]

30 Boxes

February 6, 2006

I have been searching for an AJAX based web-calendar a couple of months ago and bumped into some pretty nifty ones like HipCal, Planzo, and CalendarHub. Downloadsquad’s article here provides a link to Thomas Hawk’s blog concerning 30boxes, which said: “30 Boxes, Best, Calendar..Ever”, made me pretty curious to try it out myself. I’ve only […]
