Fun Booth 2 adds World Cup paraphernalia to your photos

Because Download Squad is always* super-relevant and topical when it comes to sports coverage, here's another app that lets you show your virtual support for your favorite World Cup team. Fun Booth 2 is like a souped-up version of the Photo Booth app for Mac, and it now includes all kinds of World Cup props that you can add to your photos. Adding team-colored beanies, jerseys, and more to...

Twitter Tuesday - Twitter launches Places, integrates with Foursquare and Gowalla

Big news from Twitter this week: the launch of Places, the next step in Twitter's plan for location-based features. You could already set a general location for your tweets, but now you can tag them with specific places. Places integrates with location-based apps Foursquare and Gowalla. These apps can already spam Twitter (ugh), but Places actually fixes that problem. Instead of checking in...

Got World Cup fever? Get a vuvuzela app for your mobile device!

If you've been watching the World Cup, you've probably noticed the vuvuzela by now. It's a type of horn that tons of fans in the World Cup stands are blowing, and it produces that incessant buzzing noise you hear during the matches.

Here's hoping! In unrelated news, Thunderbird 3.1RC2 came out this week. You know, I've never met anyone...

FootieFox: Firefox extension to feed your World Cup obsession

Yesterday I mentioned Microsoft's Soccer Scoreboard. If you prefer to take your sports scores in the form of a Firefox extension, there's FootieFox, an extension that will give you up-to-the-minute scores for today's matches. You can configure it for your preferred teams and leagues, and it will sit quietly in your Firefox statusbar displaying the most recent score, or all matches at the click...

Microsoft's World Cup scoreboard

I'll admit, I'm pretty sports agnostic, but Microsoft apparently isn't: It's released Soccer Scoreboard for World Cup 2006, a little Windows app that will show you the score of the current match, a schedule of upcoming matches, and the current standings. You can also add a custom RSS feed to be shown in a ticker at the bottom, and adjust the transparency level. Before you install the Soccer...
