GOOWY – Email, Calendar, Widgets and More

March 13, 2006

A way to manage your digital lifestyle. First you’ll need to get a free account with Goowy. Once you have that which only takes a minute to setup your ready to check out all the cool information Goowy has to offer. The first thing I did was download and install the Goowy desktop application.

With the Goowy desktop I could immediately check email (which you can use Goowy or import your Gmail or whatever) get to my contacts, calendar, Read news and Blogs (Although I did get a system error once) and manage your Desktop minis. What’s a mini you ask? Well minis are little boxes and balloons you can cover your desktop with. Here’s a screen shot of minis.

Currently you get 2GB of space you use for email, but there are some other features coming soon. Integrated messaging to use all your different messenger accounts and file storage. The program looks nice and so far unobtrusive but quick to access.

Skobee – Get out thier and make some PLans!

March 11, 2006

 

This one couldn’t have come up at a better time. With Spring approaching fast I like to have tons a cookouts and get togethers. I signed up for an account and started inviting the inner circle of my closest freinds to join up. Already I have 2 cookouts planned, and a couple NCAA basketball tournement parties.

The site interface is very nicely done. Simple and straightforward. They do a nice job of using the Google Maps API to incorprate a map of the event location.

Get on and start making plans. Skobee


Microsoft Windows Live

March 10, 2006

 

Windows Live is a new set of Internet software and services designed to put you in control of the information, relationships and interests you care about. Windows Live will make it easier for you to connect with people, and to quickly find the information you need, more safely and securely, whether you’re on your PC or on the go. Very easy to add content but you have to look around to find good stuff.  I really like the portable favorites.  There is also an idea page that touts a bunch of cool stuff but that is yet to be seen.  I’m sure there will be a monthly charge.  And to charge isn’t very Web 2.o-ish at all.  You can play with the beta here Windows Live One more point to make is that they do have a great url for this.  How much easier could it get www.live.com Makes ya wonder what kind of coin they spent to get that one.
