Digg overhauled again in response to user demands

Digg V4 didn't receive the warmest of welcomes from faithful users when it launched last year. Now, the company is beginning the move to Digg V5 -- another retooling of the site's interface, which it says is based upon users' most requested changes. The new look dumps the category sidebar and search box, and the overall appearance is less cluttered than Digg V4. Digg has also finished importing...

New version of Digg released; face-lifted, faster, but is it too little too late?

The new version of Digg, after a couple of months of beta testing, has today been released to the public. If you missed my preview of it back in July, here's the basic gist of new Digg: by virtue of a streamlined UI that requires less clicks, it's faster; you now 'follow' news sources (and friends), which generates a personalised 'My News' page; and... well, that's about it, really. The new...

Digg 2.0 almost ready for prime time: faster, less draconian

Late last night in Texas -- at the infamous and indefatigable SXSWi convention -- Digg's CEO Jay Adelson showed the world a new and revamped version of Digg. This overhaul, which has been five years in the making and the primary focus of the Digg team, will elicit a dramatic change in the slow, unwieldy and demagogic nature of the service. Along with the usual Web 2.0-esque streamlining...

Blogs are a dime-a-dozen these days. There's no shortage of sites dedicated to posting articles on just about anything you could possibly be interested in. Regator.com, a website dedicated to sifting through the countless blogs on the internet has finally released their own companion iPhone application. If you're not familiar with Regator, it's a great web resource that highlights the web's...

Regator takes a bite out of the blogoshpere

There are certainly plenty of blog directories and Digg type websites that tell you what the most popular or "best" news of the day is. Regator wants to join the fray. Regator is a combination of a lot of different methods of news aggregation. Actual people do a lot of the work, reading through and finding blog posts they think are interesting to read. Those posts are sorted into almost 500...

SpotBack - a customizable news aggregation site

I'm personally tiring of all the news aggregation sites that have popped up all over the web, and am frustrated and dismayed that as of yet the holy grail of personalization seems not to have been achieved successfully. It was with some trepidation then that I followed James Kendrick's advice (he co-runs the wildly popular JKOnTheRun blog with Kevin C. Tofel) and decided to check out SpotBack, the...

Daylife - Fancy new news aggregator (but missing RSS)

It's not like RSS hasn't been around for awhile now. For me it's become ingrained in my web usage so completely that when a new site comes along that wants to aggregate news for me, if it doesn't have RSS I'm not going to take another look. Well, at least that's what I thought. Unfortunately, Daylife came along and showed me that as much as I'd like to think I'm an info-snob (give me my feeds, I...
