Mozilla releases interactive Firefox heat map illustrating just how often we hit the back button

Proving yet again that Mozilla is a cut above the rest, its Metrics team has just published a fantastic interactive Firefox heat map that illustrates exactly how we interact with the main browser window. The Mozilla Metrics blog has some background info on the project and some basic analysis of the figures. I'm going to try and dig a bit deeper, however. Let's start with Windows versus Mac OS ...

SXSW Interactive day one in pictures

The panels have only just begun at SXSW (you can find a list of day one interactive events here), but I took a quick stroll through the Austin Convention Center earlier today and grabbed some pics of how many people are here (spoiler alert: a ton) and some shots of the Seed booth. Again, if you're on the ground in Austin you can write your takeaway from any interactive panel you attend via this Se...

Fotolog gets snapped up, with new plans to make some real cash

Leading photo blogging website Fotolog, has been bought up by the leading Europen interactive company Hi Media based in Paris, for a little less than the competition. But does it really matter when you can monetize the service better? Fox acquired Photobucket for about $250 million earlier this year, and this deal with Fotolog was only for about $90 million. Sure Fox has deep pockets, but Hi Medi...

iSight Screensavers does interactive video

You can say what you want about the use or need for screensavers in today's computing world - but it won't effect the cool factor of these iSight Screensavers. Designed for Macs with iSight cameras (either built-in or otherwise), iSight Screensavers provides six different effects that can interact with video shot by an iSight, making for one cool screensaver. Effects like Fluid, Particles, Fire a...

Web 3.0?

Red Interactive Agency, an internet website designing company, has seen the future and it's a whole new level of interactivity on the web. On their little test site you're a randomly generated avatar with a generic username. From there, if you wish, you're able to choose an avatar of your choice as well as a username and your location. After all that, you can roam the site as you please. There is ...

Weather.com introduces interactive maps

I admittedly don't spend any significant amount of time at Weather.com, but a little birdie who does just tipped us off to a new Interactive Weather Map beta that still has that new feature shine to it. The map offers full drag-able goodness, with the ability to swap between Radar, Clouds and Clouds + Radar coverage. On-the-fly transparency of said coverage is also present, as well as a slow-fra...

Microsoft preparing to deploy Atlas AJAX toolkit

Microsoft is busy developing its new AJAX toolset using the codename Atlas. There is a lot of excitement and interest in this new tool that Microsoft is expecting to release at the end of 2006, but is currently only available as a prerelease. The final release will depend on user feedback from a beta release version. Microsoft has said that along with Atlas, we will see the release of certified At...

Microsoft patents watching TV while chatting

The scoop is on ArsTechnica. The patent is for a "multimode interactive television chat." Like Jeremy, I also worked for a company during the dotcom boom time that had the brilliant idea of embedding clickable links in QuickTime video content. Anyone seeing this today? I didn't think so. The holy grail of TV and interactivity may come to pass, however, if MS can figure out how to make it...

Time Waster of the Day: Orisinal, a boat load of great Flash games

I am a huge fan of WarioWare. Little, goofy, quickie games are great diversions for the old-timey gamer in me. And Orisinal is a great example of these. Not only does the site have a bunch of 'em, they are all quite novel in design. For example, "Pocketful of Stars" has you directing a little girl to jump up and catch stars— in her reflection. Many of these Flash-based games origin...
