Writing about web page http://bit.ly/facebphotos
Facebook is finally going to update its photo system. After several years of being not very good at all, it's going to get a nice update which will include:
1) uploading/downloading photos of up to 2048 pixels (width/length);
2) bulk tagging (yay!); and
3) lightbox (meh)
Only downside appears to be ads, but I don't mind that so long as they're not overly intrusive.

Amazon prides itself on its prices and all its regular losers love perusing the RRP vs Amazon Price tags. Anyone interested in the X-box Elite may want to check out this fantastic bargain:

Just watching "CNN Connects: Our Networked World". It's basically a round table discussion on the "new" explosion of internet usage in the form of Youtube and the like.
It's a relatively interesting discussion. There's a co-founder of Flickr, the founder of Facebook, the CEO of Orange etc.
But, as usual, the presenter is absolutely clueless concerning the current world of the internet and just reeks of condescension and stupidity. In between lame jokes about Second Life and The Matrix and rampant hand-waving, she comes up with gems like this:
"If Web 2.0 is more than just a marketing gimmick, then there will be a Web 3.0, won't there?"
I don't understand why the big broadcasting networks don't hire people who are genuinely into the field. It's like they called up the weather team and asked them to pick a weather girl at random to present a tech show. Makes me want to throw the TV out of the window.

Writing about web page http://www.pandora.com/
http://www.pandora.com/ – I know this has been around for quite a bit of time now, but I’ve only just recently discovered it. Great site that tailor-makes a radio station for you. You set the ball rolling by telling it what Music you like, then it starts playing random songs (ie suggestions) and you tell it whether you like it or not, and keep moving on. Really great idea.
http://widgets.yahoo.com/ – Yay widgets for windows! The windows widgets have been around for a while (and Yahoo widgets is more-or-less just Konfabulator), so it’s nothing really new here. I use it just for the handy Weather, Shortcut Launcher and Currency Exchanger. I’ve also downloaded a neat little Gmail alert. Bound to have widgets for whatever you like.
Virtual Dimension – Really handy desktop organisational tool that’s perfect for computer-literate students. Wished I was using it back in the day! :’( Basically allows you to create multiple virtual desktops which you can instantly switch to, containing the different windows of your various programs. So for example desktop one might have Microsoft Word open with your latest essay, and you might also have a firefox window open with plenty of Jstor tabs. Desktop two might feature your MSN windows and a VLC window playing the latest ep of Prison Break (which I’m sure you’ve obtained legally!). It’s also open source, which means that all you geeks out there get to modify it without violating copyright. (DOWN WITH LINUX!)
