The Linux distro timeline is an extensive family tree of all things Linux

Most commercial products run a fairly set course; you get Microsoft Office 1.5, then 1.6, 3.0, 4.0, all the way up to office 2010 (For Windows, at least). It's a fairly orderly progression, with version numbers rising over time – pretty easy to follow. Open-source projects are a different beast, however. When enough developers don't like the direction a project is going, they sometimes just...

Twitter for iPad launches, and it's beautiful

The official Twitter for iPhone app has updated, and with the latest update it became a universal app, meaning it has native iPhone and iPad versions. While the iPhone version continues to incrementally improve, it's the iPad version that is really remarkable. It took me a little while to get used to it, because the user interface is fairly busy. But you get a heck of a lot of bang for your buck...

Google introduces Twitter timeline search

Google's venture into real-time search just got a lot more serious, with a new Twitter timeline feature. Like Twitter's own search, Google's Twitter timeline can tell you what people are saying about your search term right now. Google's done one better, though, by indexing tweets back to the beginning of time (well, the beginning of Twitter, anyway), and displaying an activity graph that shows...

Get your Photoshop version control for free -- Timeline giveaway!

Hopefully by now you've read my review of Timeline and decided whether you want a copy or not. In a nutshell though, Timeline is a front-end for Subversion (SVN) version control within Photoshop. It automates the process of checking files in and out -- that's it. I want to say that casual users probably won't find Timeline very exciting -- but is there such a thing as casual Photoshop users when...

Timeline integrates Photoshop with Subversion (SVN) for full version control

My name's Sebastian, I'm a photographer, and I have a problem: I take lots of photos at an excruciatingly high resolution. If 20 megabyte RAW files weren't bad enough, by the time each photo goes through my Photoshop workflow they're 50-100MB each. But that's OK -- I just keep buying terabyte drives. I'm a junky like that! The real problems occur when it comes to editing: sometimes I make...

Google Stream? Google will launch "huge" new social features tomorrow

Google is working on something mysterious that has to do with Gmail and social networking, but the details are still under wraps. The new product will be unveiled tomorrow, and it could be anything from integrating Gmail status updates with Twitter and Facebook to launching a full-scale Twitter-like service of its own. Here's what we're hearing so far: TechCrunch says the new product will...

Swurl brings all of your social networking activity together

Once upon a time, letting people know what you were up to online was simple. You'd just point your friends toward your blog, LiveJournal page, or MySpace where you posted all of your latest musing on life. But if you're an active netizen, odds are your social activity is spread out across a half dozen or more sites, ranging from YouTube to del.icio.us. Swurl is a new service that helps bring all...

Your Timetoast is ready! Build timelines with this web app

Timetoast is an attractive new timeline app built on Abode's Flash and Flex. Do you like your timelines interactive and embeddable? Sure beats the last timeline we made (crayons and construction paper may have been involved)! This could be a good tool for bloggers who want to enhance a post with a detailed history of the topic, or for anyone in school who doesn't want to approach the...

Timeline your life with Dipity.

Timelines are a great way to provide an overview of events. But what's even better is a timeline that generates content automatically based on information you probably already have. Dipity takes automated timeline creation to a new level. If you have (and quite frankly who doesn't) a Blogger, Flickr, WordPress, YouTube, Twitter or any of the other supported social networking site just enter in...

Create a timeline with AOL's circaVie

AOL has launched circaVie, a new service that allows you to create photo timelines that you can share with friends or embed in a website. CircaVie lets you upload photos one at a time and put a title, date, and description on each. The web service does the rest, arranging the photos on a timeline. The effect is a professional looking timeline... so long as you don't have a lot of gaps. The...

How to create timelines in Excel

Ah, Excel. I can't think of any app more frequently used for something other than its intended purpose. Today I learned how to make timelines in Excel, from Microsoft's own Education site, of all places. It's a very short tutorial, but in case you've ever needed to create a timeline, and fast, don't overlook the flexibility of Excel. Handy....

The most important software innovations ever

Ajax may be the coolest thing since sliced arrays (*ducks*), but in the grand scheme of things it doesn't really compare to many of the things on David A. Wheeler's list of The Most Important Software Innovations. The updated-for-2006 list spans more than 150 years, from the birth of software (with Babbage's Analytical Engine in 1837) to the first compiler in 1952 to the spreadsheet in 1978 and so...
