WebChunks Brings IE8's Slices to Firefox (Download Squad)

Sep 4th 2008 11:39PM Though the slices thing is cool I guess, I'm much more a fan of IE8's accelerators. IMHO it's the best thing IE got going for it. Without even having to right click that huge list of options is immediately and always available to you. It really does accelerate your browsing. And the fact that there's a dedicated site which aggregates all the assorted Accelerators is even better. The smart bar and improved searching is great as well, especially compared to Google Chrome's cleverly thought out but poorly executed Omni bar. Still, all of this isn't enough to make me want to leave firefox. Make sure to let us know when there is a similar Accelerator's addon for firefox though!

Microsoft job listing hints at App Store-like 'Skymarket' for Windows Mobile (Engadget)

Aug 31st 2008 11:22PM I'm confused, what's that got to do with anything? Serious of sarcastic?

Google Knol goes live, Wikipedia hardly quaking in its boots (Download Squad)

Jul 24th 2008 9:27AM The good thing about Wikipedia being a non-profit is that everything they do is for the user while's Google's Knol will be used to boast ad revenue at any cost. Unfortunately Google will most likely rank Knols articles highers than Wikipedia's in their search engine and capture a great deal of users without even trying. Google apparently plays the 'me-to' game as well.

Creative announces Zen Mosaic, looks like bad Mondrian (Engadget)

Jul 24th 2008 9:06AM I think it looks better than good. It looks original. Anyone remember how weird those first few all white ipods were but they definitely caught your attention. Creative seems to be going for the same effect. For kids and teens only though.

Sony Reader goes open, will be able to work with other booksellers (Engadget)

Jul 24th 2008 9:00AM Remind me, why was this received so poorly, while the Kindle was raved about? Was it only the book selection because I, honestly, would rather be seen using one of these the the Kindle.

Apple's Remote: turns your iPhone into a WiFi remote control (Engadget)

Jul 10th 2008 10:17AM How long does you're touch last when using this?

iPhone 3G lines start at the Apple Cube... one week early (Engadget)

Jul 5th 2008 2:21PM Hope they baby isn't as stoned as they all are.

Verizon CEO hates on Steve Jobs, doesn't see iPhone as a mass-market handset (Engadget)

Jul 1st 2008 1:25PM People seems to think Verizon is somehow just expending jealous regret over not landing the iphone contract but the way I see it, good for them. The iphone might be whats hot right now but Att isn't really making bank of this deal, at least not until about 2010. In fact they're losing quite a bit. So the iphone and follup devices are still, somehow, trendy by then maybe their little gamble will pay off and they won't go belly up.

Facebook added comments to the mini-feed. Add a new comment? (Download Squad)

Jun 26th 2008 9:56AM Seems like a useful feature. Often, I'll send someone a comment about something on the mini feed and they won't really know what I'm talking about. (No one remembers all the little things they do on facebook) So this could make these comments more relevant and maybe even help my fake social life.

Screenshot of Microsoft "TownSquare" - Social Networking at Work (Download Squad)

Jun 12th 2008 8:31PM I read this somewhere else but was interested to see that you guys included a screenshot though I wish the picture was a little higher quality.
