TuneUp brings its music library cleanup skills to Windows Media Player

One day, the big, popular media apps like iTunes and Windows Media Player will include really good library clean-up abilities out of the box.

Pollux tags your music files in iTunes so you don't have to

Pollux is a new Mac OS X application by Chetan Surpur and Shashwat Kandadai that will automatically tag your music files in iTunes. It is capable of tagging the name, artist, album, album art, genre, year, and lyrics for each song, and it does so by analyzing the song's audio fingerprint. This means that it can draw on a database of tag information, and do so very accurately, even if the song has...

A cloud of fluffy words from Wordle

Tag clouds are a great way to visualize content. Sites like Flickr, del.icio.us as well as a little blog called Download Squad use clouds.

Put in a bunch of words or enter your del.icio.us user name and based on the information...

Gifttagging - tag things you want, and hope someone gets them for you

Flickr photos now in Yahoo search

So now that Yahoo owns Flickr why not integrate all these crazy, top notch, up to the second, newsworthy photos into Yahoo's image search? It only makes sense.

When images are uploaded to Flickr accounts worldwide and tagged, Yahoo gains access to these...

del.icio.us users hit a high note

The team at del.icio.us made a quiet announcement last week--so quiet that Download Squad didn't even hear it. It seems that the beginning of February saw the 1.5 millionth user register on the social bookmarking site. Apparently since the Yahoo! buyout the team is bursting at the seams trying to integrate with Yahoo!'s user base. The del.icio.us team hasn't made a post on their official blog...
