So what exactly is Pownce? Well, it's hard to define in a quick and concise way - but the raison d'etre is simply this: "Pownce is brought to you by a bunch of geeks who were...

Kevin Rose launches his Instant Messaging network, Pownce

It was known that Kevin Rose of Digg fame has been working with a small team on something to do with instant messaging for a little while now. Well, the kittie kat jumped, or should I say Pownced out of the bag on Tuesday night. Pownce is a way to send anything from messages, files, links and events to friends online. It runs care of Adobe's Apollo runtime platform, taking advantage of its many...

Digg to add photos, product and restaurant reviews
