Google Bookmarks gets Delicious import, via staffer's undead script

When Yahoo announced it was ready to wash its hands of Delicious, panicked users began looking for alternative places to send their cloud bookmarks. Delicious, however, responded quickly and said there was nothing to worry about -- the service was still being maintained and your bookmarks didn't need to be rescued from a burning building. Never ones to miss an opportunity, Google has finally...

Hands-on: Pinboard is a great Delicious alternative

So, Yahoo! went ahead and announced it doesn't like Delicious anymore. This is pretty much the dumbest move I've seen Yahoo! do in recent memory, and Delicious is going to fight for its survival outside of Yahoo!. I really hope Delicious is going to make it, and I have every reason to believe it will. It's an incredible service, and one of the cornerstones of the Internet. Still, since I rely...

Yahoo is shutting down Delicious, heralding the end of a tasty era [Updated]

Del.icio.us has lived a long life -- having been around since 2003 -- but Yahoo! has confirmed the demise of the delectable bookmark service. It comes as no surprise after news of the company's recent layoff blitz, and the Delicious team has been on the list of expected victims for well over a year. It's not the only property getting the "sunset" treatment from Yahoo!, either; Yahoo! Picks,...

Reeder for iPhone gets more Delicious

RSS readers are not all created equally, especially on iOS, but arguably one of the best, Reeder, which is available for both iPhone and iPad, just keeps getting better. The recent update to Reeder for iPad sees Delicious integration with YahooIDs as well as the addition of Facebook and Zootool sharing, and best of all, background syncing support for iOS 4.2. Not to be left out in the cold, the...

Zukmo is the best-named Web bookmarking service on the planet

I'm sorry; I simply could not resist covering a service with a name like Zukmo. Apart from the name, there's absolutely no connection between myself and the service. And I must say, the name is just about the most remarkable thing about this service at the moment (which is saying a lot). It's basically a Web bookmarking service. I can't even call it "social bookmarking" because there doesn't...

Reeder for iPad updated for iOS 4.2 with background syncing

Reeder, one of our must have apps for the iPad, has just received an update for iOS4.2. Finally, iPad users can take advantage of iOS4's multitasking capabilities, with Reeder able to complete its synchronization when running in the background. It's difficult to truly describe how useful this is going to be for users with large RSS lists, as it can take a good while to sync and cache all that...

How to visually bookmark color palettes using Delicious

Here's one thing that I had no idea you could do with Delicious: bookmark color palettes! This hidden little gem was apparently introduced one April Fool's day, but it was useful enough to stay (if not enough to become famous). To bookmark a color template, just save a bookmark and, instead of a URL, specify a color: prefix and then a bunch of HEX color values, like...

Historious lets you easily recall where you browsed, but the price tag is a killer

Historious tries to fill an incredibly tiny niche in the world of online bookmarking, archiving, and saving text for later perusal. It's a browser bookmarklet, and its claim to fame is that it involves just a single click. There's no tagging or anything like that. Once you click the bookmarklet, Historious adds the site to your "personal history." You can then search your personal history for...

Screenshot tour: Pearltrees tries to be graphical Delicious of the future; fails

Pearltrees is a fledgling social bookmarking service, which tries to break away from the tagging paradigm. Instead, each bookmark is a "pearl", and the pearls are linked into trees. You can see all of your bookmarks on a large Flash-based canvas, and drag them around. The site is tightly integrated with a Firefox add-on for creating "pearls". The idea sounded intriguing, so I decided to take...

Twitter Tuesday - this week's Twitter news, apps and more

Ladies and gentlemen, it's Tuesday! You know what that means: you've survived another weekend and made it through Monday, and now it's time to talk Twitter. We've got plenty of interesting news and apps for you this week, as well as a new celebrity twitterer who's actually worth following. I'll tell you all about it in this week's Twitter Tuesday. Let's go! Conan O'Brien had a TV show, and...

Delicious lands in Google Chrome Extension Gallery - it's official, and very beta

It's still a bit rough around the edges at this point, but the new beta bookmarking extension from Delicious is a big improvement over its last offering. In case you hadn't seen the last version, it was pretty much identical to using Delicious via a bookmarklet -- and not very exciting. The new release, however, is a much more solid effort. Your Delicious bookmarks are now synced to Chrome...

Delicious brings back the Hotlist, adds "People" feature

The folks over at Delicious have been fairly active recently. A month ago they added filtering and browsing features, and yesterday they released a couple of new changes. Well, one is not that new actually -- more of a comeback, but it's still cool (or hot, as the case may be). The Hotlist has been lurking under a more confusing name for some time, and now it's back to being a "hotlist". It...

Delicious adds filtering and browsing features

Delicious, the social bookmarking site arguably started it all, was recently updated with a couple of new features. They've added the ability to display only private or only public bookmarks, and the ability to choose whether you want to show or hide the history of who you've sent bookmarks to. You can also choose whether bookmarks open in the current tab or a new tab. Delicious has also added a...

Delicious gets a new "Fresh" tab and easier sharing

The popular social bookmarking service Delicious has been stagnating a bit since Yahoo purchased it, inspiring competition from the likes of Pinboard. Yahoo hasn't complete abandoned Delicious, though. An update today adds new search and sharing features and a "Fresh" tab that uses Twitter trends to find the most relevant links on Delicious. Now, when you search on Delicious, you can specify a...

Pinboard brings back the glory days of bookmarking, for a fee

Pinboard is a simple, functional bookmarking site, reminiscent of Delicious in its pre-Yahoo! prime, but it comes with a small catch. To join Pinboard, there's a one-time fee based on the number of users who have signed up so far. The fee is $0.001 times the number of users already signed up. As of a moment ago, it's a little over $4.50 to get an account. Instead of "social bookmarking,"...
