Be a Google slave

Well … it’s been a very long time since I last posted and today I will feature a attempt by Google to use metadata from users to improve their image search. The app pairs you up with another partner and both of you will throw keyword tags at the displayed photo. When both hits a match, you gain some points and move on. Check it out. But don’t waste your time being a slave to Google.

Microsoft Surface

It’s all over the place by now. Microsoft introduces Surface. A revolutionary way of computing without keyboard and mouse. Simply with hand gestures … you can get things done. It’ll take a while to see it in widespread use though … but very nice otherwise.

I just hope it won’t display the blue screen of death when you’re on a hot date!

Joost - TV on demand

I just got my invite to test out this new software called Joost. The interface is very mediabox like and frankly, it’s just a video sharing site with a dash of bling. Similar to Veoh, Joost is still in beta (aren’t they all?).

If you need an invite, here’s a link. Enjoy and tell me what you think about it :)

Call the Future

How would you like to set a reminder to call yourself in the future? Wouldn’t it be handy if you could use a service like that to get out of awkward situations? Or as an excuse to lie to your wife? Whatever reasons, it’s all up to you …. provided you don’t use it for harassing someone or illegal activities.

Give it a shot!

Excite and please her with your phone

product-shot-2.jpgIt’s now available! A toy to connect 2 lovers separated worlds apart. The Toy is a bluetooth connected SMS controlled vibrator great for those who can’t keep their hands off each other even when they’re apart. Best of all, it’s so discreet only you and your partner knows about it.

I’m not sure if the vibrating sound will turn some heads but it’s indeed a novel idea.

A web OS

Many years back, I was ecstatic when Desktop.com was released. It offered the first look at a web based Operating System. Desktop was great as it had little apps to built up a whole web based OS. About 2 years down the road, the company and site just vanished into thin air. The domain had changed hands and it’s just a browser toolbar now.

To let you understand exactly what I’m talking about, check out a similiar idea called YouOS. I must say that it’s not as complete as DeskTop, but there’s a good future for this project. The only thing I don’t understand is why they have a browser within the app. An email client would proof more useful.

Enjoy and tell me what you think :)
