Haven’t got time to post individually on these new services so they are all bunched up into this post. I’ve noticed this has been happening lately on some blogs, there are so many new services, that we can’t pay attention to them all, so round up blog posts are increasing.
I may do this from time to time, these are posts that need more attention then my del.icio.us bookmarks (even though I re-syndicate my del.icio.us bookmarks in the feed of this blog) this way they will be seen on the blog as well.
UniveRSS - a 3D RSS feed reader for Windows Vista.
LetMeParty - SMS posts to your blog, simple as that!
TagCrowd - enter some text or a file and it will generate a tag cloud showing word frequency the cloud way…also includes code to embed it into a blog post.
Imagine using TagCrowd for audio or video, clicking on a tag would give you the index spots where these terms appear, although this is more word occurrence rather than conceptual aboutness…I think someone has done it.
Badged.net - footer buttons for your blog posts
Cellblock - take a picture on your mobile phone and email it to a Cellblock, each of your cellblocks has a unique email address. Each cellblock plays as a type of slideshow, you can even embed a cellblock into your blog…MyTago is kind of similar.
STAMPS - SMS a note to a communal map
Website thumbnail previews - hover over a link to get a thumbnail image
Blogger has private blogs.
Gotvoice - converts voicemails into audio files
Spinvox - converts voicemails to text
Yackpack - send a voice message to a group in an email.
It is also a chat service, group members login and push a button to talk to the group, see s photo of who is talking
Grouptivity - a system where you can manage contacts into groups and email participants with form like templates
Zyb - back up your mobile content
rminder - send yourself reminder SMS and voicemails
MT1 - Listen to your emails and docs as an mp3
Newzpile - another one of those meta-searching widget services
Wengo - similar to meebome, but with video
Feed Harvest - what the hell is this, some kind of way to centralise RSS, maybe it’s reading desktop feeds as a web based version.
Technorati Link Count Widget - footer for each post that notates how many people link to the post and you can click on it to see results in Technorati, although a small ajax window would be good instead of having to go to Technorati. My closest idea to this is to pop up a grazr box and read the posts of the people who link to your post within the Grazr box.
Recommendzlt - yet another tag app
Quintura - a new type of clustered/related terms visual search tool
Hictu - a place to keep all your contacts and their online presence…plazes, feedmap seems to be missing…Hictu would be great as a widget for a start page. Maybe each contact could also have a link to an identity management site like Ziki, Lijit, Profile Linker, claimID, Naymz, simplifID, etc…see this somewhat related post.
Scrybe - there are so many of these PIM tools, the sharable all-in-one calendar, tasks, to-do, notes, etc…
The difference here is that you can use it offline without installing anything, and next time you on the net it will synch…see more.
Wallnote - manage notes with desktop and web access, also has offline synching
Wrike - group task collaboration
mixlet - search news filtered by format
pmeme - a people memetracker
Amberjack - website tours
Mapwing - tour widget
Gobits RSS Reader - web based RSS Reader and a blog creator
Zebtab - RSS Reader widget for your actual desktop
tiny tiny RSS - web based RSS Reader
Anchorman - RSS Reader and feed creator
Fonpods - audio on demand for your mobile phone, more precisely, you join the website and have your own RSS Reader for audio posts or podcasts, but instead of downloading the audio files like a Podcatcher does, you instead ring up and listen to your podcasts (no downloading and you don’t need and mp3 player, all you need is a mobile phone).
A similar service is Podlinez, a podcast directory with phone numbers next to each entry, just ring a number to listen to the latest podcast from that website on your phone…or enter the podcast URL and it will churn out a phone number.
BizBar - make your own toolbar
TinyRSS - sidebar RSS Reader
WhoLinksToMe - more for your ego
ZAP Reader - this is like speed reading, type in a URL or just some text into the box, and you will be able to read that text much quicker.
eg. enter the URL of this blog post
into ZAP Reader:
Set the words per minutes and click play, you will see the text flash…since you only read one word at a time, it seems logical to this service that you only see one word at a time.
You can change the settings to read more than one word at a time, and change the speed, font, etc…
They also have a browser bookmarklet, and blog plugins.
SlickRun - similar to a hotkey program
Short Keys - program text into just one key eg. pressing one key will show a whole paragraph, or program the letter “b” to display your blog URL, etc…see more features.
I think this is different to a hotkey program which launches programs eg. press “m” and your email will launch…see Yahoo! Shortcuts, YubNub, Ambedo…and more.
Also check out Sugarcode.
Speaking of hotkeys, I just found out if you hold the CTRL key and rotate the mouse wheel you can change the font size on a page…see more.
osk.exe - mouse operated screen keyboard
Another cool find is to find out the date/time when a webpage was last update, just type this into the address bar and press go:
Bloglines Playlists - create Playlists from your feedset…they could achieve the same thing if they enabled tagging instead of folders.
But I do like the idea of creating a disposable playlist, at the moment if I want to hand a friend a set of feeds, I’d have to create an OPML at BlogBridge Feed Library, Technorati Favourites, Blogdigger Groups, Top 10 Sources, etc…and I don’t want to do this as this will also create a HTML public page.
All I want is a disposable unique OPML, this seems a great feature for RSS Readers or even and add on, ie. select feeds and generate a unique OPML URL to give to a friend…see OPML Generator (this is not unique), FeedShow OPML Builder…see more.
Hack your Feedburner chicklet - simply change some text
SpringWidgets - on your startpage, desktop, blog, wherever you like, even as your customised Feedburner latest posts (see ya later Headline animator).
NOTE: why don’t the blog posts on the animator link to the posts, instead of the blog homepage.
