Yahoo launches Mafia Wars and FishVille

Yahoo has just launched Mafia Wars and FishVille, two games developed by Zynga, the company best known for FarmVille and its other games on the Facebook platform. In the past few months though, Zynga has shifted away from being tied exclusively to Facebook and has launched its games on Windows Live Messenger, MSN Games -- and now Yahoo. Mafia Wars and FishVille will appear in Yahoo...

Boutiques.com, Google's fashion shopping site, may launch on Wednesday

A rumor has started making the rounds across the interwebs, and it has something to do with Google possibly launching a fashion shopping site. Apparently, it all started with a tweet from an "anonymous New York fashion PR", according to Frockwriter. That tweet was the cause for a lot of coverage in itself, until it was made public that many people in the fashion world had been invited to a Google...

Digg now has a staff-picked Breaking News section

Digg has announced that it's adding a Breaking News module to its service. The module can be seen on the right side of the Top News, My News and Upcoming pages on Digg. Right now it shows five stories at a time, with one of them being highlighted as a Hot Story. The new section will also allow Digg to aggregate stories on a particular topic. Unlike the rest of Digg, where users control the...

SugarSync ups free storage to 5 GB, now allows any number of connected devices

SugarSync has announced that users of its basic, free plan will now get 5 GB of storage 'in the cloud'. Previously, that limit was 2 GB -- a limit that its main competitor, Dropbox, still has. The free 5 GB plan includes unlimited device support, and, as before, you can sync any folder(s) you wish across computers (Windows and Mac) and smartphones running iOS, Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile...

Google Wave now lets you export waves to Zip files

Google has just announced the availability of a Zip export tool for waves created in the almost defunct Google Wave. This looks like it's just the first step of many that will let you get the data you've created in Wave out of the service before it's eventually shut down forever. Within any wave, there's now an Export menu that lets you save the wave and any attachments that have been added...

Spotify Premium seven-day trial now available

Spotify has started making a seven-day trial of its Premium subscription available. Spotify Premium is a paid subscription that gives you access to all the top notch features such as higher quality audio, ad-free listening, mobile access, and offline mode for both desktop and mobile.

42goals lets you track and graph goals of all kinds

Oh wow, another goal tracker. How exciting is that? If you caught yourself thinking something like that upon seeing the title of this post, I'm sure you're not the only one; it's exactly what I thought when I first came across 42goals. Then, I started playing with it and realized it's actually pretty cool. It's kind of like Joe's Goals on steroids. Some goals are best tracked with a simple "+1"...

Web Hosting Reviews lets you pick a host that's right for you in a jiffy

Hosting Reviews is a neat free service for comparing a myriad of Web hosts. It uses a rich, AJAX-y filtering system with plenty of parameters. The list is dynamically updated as you apply various filter criteria, and it's very easy to narrow down to the exact hosts that offer the features you need. In their press release, they make a pretty bold claim: "Unlike many hosting comparison sites -- we...

2 Prong: Easy spam-fighting disposable e-mail addresses

I'm a big fan of services that help me keep spam out of my inbox, and I'm an even bigger fan of services that make it dead easy like 2 Prong. Like many, many other services 2 Prong gives you disposable email addresses that you can use when registering for web sites that require a valid email address and clicking on an emailed validation link. What makes 2 Prong special is that it reduces this to a...

Skobee: Make plans

Skobee is an interesting web service that's supposed to make it easier to get people together. Having this very week utterly failed to organize a gathering when an old friend came to town, this appeals to me immensely. The main concept is "start general and get specific as needed": you add a bunch of people to an invite list with a vague plan ("dinner soon") and as people get...
