Interclue - a web preview similar to Snap. Interclue can also be used as a browser button to get more info about the page you are viewing, and it also has action icons.
I’d like to see this kind of thing for blog posts, just click on the title or footer and from the preview box access information and start an action:
- bookmark submit and popularity
- Technorati Tags
- Sphere related posts
- Chat/comment withvarious 3rd party services
- blog it/twitter it
- email to a friend
- etc… [via RWW]
Desktop On Demand - these webtops are becoming a crowded market, just can’t see myself using one as yet, but I really like the idea of how they move on from the startpage idea to an online desktop with inbuilt web apps like email, file manager,etc…Startpages also have inbuilt apps, but allow you to embed widgets from elsewhere, maybe webtops could be just as extensible. I’d like a webtop where I could choose the web email, IM, file manager, RSS reader, MS Office web equivalents, etc…
Second Brain - your online filing cabinet is in 3 sections:
1. synchronise content from social bookmarks, photo’s video, etc…this means you can access your del.icio.us bookmarks, YouTube clips from within 2nd brain
2. Upload files form your PC, where they have their own hosted URL (give your word documents a URL)
3. Create collections and mindmaps
Apparently they are adding new modules like feeds, I’d like to see a notes module.
The great thing is that it is social so you can search content and people, I see it as a combination of services:
- Lifestream or identity content management eg. Stalkr, Mugshot, and also a people search engine based on who has registered.
- file host with widgets eg. box
- lists/collections eg. buzka, Squidoo and others
