Climsy shares images on your clipboard via Dropbox and Imageshack

Every now and then, there's screen capture or image you stumble across that you just have to share. Climsy is a nice, simple Windows program which makes the process dead simple. It works the way FluffyApp does: take a screenshot or right-click and copy an image to your clipboard in any application, and Climsy will file it to a folder of your choosing or upload to either your Dropbox account,...

Mobile torrenting: how to manage and stream downloads from your phone

While exciting progress is being made in the realm of high-speed mobile data, it will be a long time indeed before wireless operators can catch up with wired bandwidth and ubiquity. For the time being, mass data transfer will be one of the few things that will stay within the realm of home and office computing, on DSL and Cable connections. Still, just because you run your BitTorrent client on...

Windows 8 leaked screenshots show Windows Live integration, taskbar tweaks

Tangible Windows 8 details are beginning to emerge with some screenshots of the OS making the rounds on the Internet. Not much is revealed, but we do get a glimpse at a couple interesting changes. For starters, taskbar progress indicator support has been expanded to other built-in Windows functions, like hardware installation. Windows Live integration is evolving, too -- you'll be able to...

Flickr for Windows 7 tablets and Windows Phone 7 officially introduced

Originally unveiled back in January, Flickr has now officially introduced its apps for Windows Phone 7 and Windows 7 tablets. You'll find the Flickr WP7 app in the Zune Marketplace, while its tablet-friendly cousin is downloadable from this page (Silverlight required). Both apps provide a slick interface for browsing and searching Flickr, and they also provide a nice way to upload and manage...

Download official Android 3.0 Honeycomb wallpaper images

As is usually the case with new Android SDK releases, various bits and pieces have been ripped out and shared with the world thanks to an enthusiastic and ambitious dev community. Over at the Android Central forums, Alex Dobie has shared nine new wallpaper images which are bundled in the tablet-friendly Android 3.0 Honeycomb SDK. The images are fairly high-res, too, at 1980x1408 pixels -- so...

Songbird app for Android goes beta, we go hands-on

Using Songbird on your desktop or laptop to listen to your cavernous collection of digital music? Good news -- the Songbird team has been working in "super seekrit" (their words, not ours) on bringing you a pocket-sized version for your Android device. Even better, they've announced the availability of the first public beta of Songbird for Android -- and we took it for a spin. Here's the quick...

Real-time discovery of Twitter images with Hashalbum

One of Twitter's greatest strengths is the sheer wealth of data that it produces. Like the Internet itself, though, without search engines, that data is all but inaccessible. Few would argue that Google defined the Internet that we use today, and likewise it is only through ingenious indexing that the Twitter fire hose will ultimately become useful. Which brings me neatly onto Hashalbum, a site...

Google Docs finally gets drag-and-drop image support

Adding images to your Google Docs documents just got easier, thanks to some long-awaited drag-and-drop support. Docs users with current versions of Chrome, Firefox, or Safari can now drag images from your desktop right into a document. Google Docs already offered a few ways to get an image into a document -- browse your hard drive, enter a URL, or use Google Image search -- but none of them had...

GrabBox auto-saves your Mac screenshots to Dropbox

GrabBox is a handy new Dropbox-powered screenshot tool for OS X. It uses the normal OS X screenshot hotkeys (Apple+Shift+3 and Apple+Shift+4), but the resulting screenshots wind up in your Dropbox public folder. It also automatically shortens the Dropbox URL of your new screenshot and copies it to the clipboard. Think about that for a second: in one fell swoop, you've captured and uploaded a...

DropMocks is a beautifully simple, HTML5-powered photo sharing site

I'm a big fan of Gmail's HTML5-powered drag-and-drop attachment feature, and I've been waiting to see it pop up in other Web apps. Thanks to Ryan Wagner over at CyberNet, I discovered DropMocks -- an amazingly simple little photo sharing site that offers the same functionality. Open your pictures folder, select a few images, and drag them onto a DropMocks tab in a supported browser (Firefox...

WordPress.com can now tap Zemanta's magic photoifying, taggy and related linky juice

Despite being posted by someone with a thoroughly unbelievable name ('Joy Victory'? Really?), I can confirm that WordPress.com users now have access to Zemanta's rather sexy functionality. Zemanta, if you've not heard of it before, is best explained as a blogging buddy. It doesn't write your blogs for you, but it can help your posts along. As you write your posts (and update your title),...

Image Resizer Powertoy Clone lets you resize image batches with one step

Image Resizer Powertoy Clone is a neat, free Windows utility, that doesn't forget to give credit where credit is due. I've never used the original Powertoy, but I can tell you its clone lets you very easily batch-resize image files. You get a single context menu entry (yes, another one) that says "Resize Pictures". When you select several image files and click this entry, a simple-looking dialog...

Google Image Search gets a new look, becomes even more useful

Google Image Search has just gotten a much-needed refresh that looks great, works better than ever, and keeps Google competitive with Bing's image search. At the risk of sounding like a Google advertisement, this update is awesome. As a regular image search user, I have to say that every change the Google Image Search team just made is an improvement. First, the new results page: it's denser...

Meego's sexy smartphone UI goes on display

Curious about what the upcoming Meego OS will look like on a smartphone? Well, wonder no more! A handful of images have been posted on the official website for all to see. Above are the home screen, launcher, and task switcher interface (from left to right). I can't help but think that Meego's UI has taken cues from its current mobile OS rivals -- which isn't really a surprise since Intel and...

Google Docs adds OCR, converts images and PDFs to text

Google Docs continues to make the case for dumping your desktop work apps, this time with a useful new text recognition feature that converts PDFs or images into plain, editable text. This new OCR feature -- that's optical character recognition -- is quite accurate, and worked pretty well on some old college textbooks scans I had laying around on my hard drive. Things are a bit tricky when you've...
