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. The free trial does come with caveats though. First off, you'll have to enter your payment details when you...

Flickr now imports Facebook friends, suggests users you may know

Flickr has added a couple of new features today. People You May Know is a rather self-explanatory tool that suggests friends for you based on your existing contacts and the people they know. This feature now appears on the Find Your Friends page, but also has a module on the Flickr homepage. You can categorize people as a friend, family, or contact right within the module. To have new...

Google launches In-Page Analytics

Google's Analytics service is a very useful tool for webmasters to track what their visitors are doing on their sites and what they're clicking on. However, up until now there was no good way to visualize how visitors navigate on a website. Analytics reports do contain a lot of data, but making sense of all the different elements of a page that are referenced in them can be a pain. To...

The 800-pound gorillas are in secret meetings to provide premium 'go-faster' Internet service

It's been a long time since we've heard anything about the Net Neutrality Debate. The last thing we heard was that the FCC wants the Internet to remain neutral (or the American portion of it at least), but for the FCC to have authority over ISPs, and major players like Google and Amazon, the Internet would have to become more formalized. As it stands, the Internet is just an 'information service',...

Times Skimmer: a different look for the New York Times

It's hard out there for a newspaper. Even if you're the New York Times, survival still depends on finding new ways to get eyeballs on your articles (and your ads). The NYT's latest trick is called Times Skimmer, and it's a convenient, attractive new way to read the paper's major headlines online. Articles are presented in a grid, using the same fonts the NYT uses in its print edition. It looks...

Colorhat: silly name, simple time tracker

Colorhat is a whimsically named web app that handles basic time tracking and reporting for your projects, so you can see how much time you're putting in. You can add projects and sub-projects by clicking and dragging on a timeline, or by typing in the info old-school style. There's also a timer feature you can use to get a more accurate picture of your work habits. Colorhat is very similar to...

5pm - Project management on time (so you don't have to be)

The clock just turned 5pm, and if you are like us, everything you have worked on all day has instantly evaporated from your mind (yes, this just happens, we don't need alcohol). Luckily, we left all those papers on our desk, the scribbled whiteboard, and a monitor-o-sticky notes to help us figure out where we left off. 5pm by QG | Software is a web-based project management suite that provides us...

Witness the powers of mind mapping!

A mind map is a graphical representation of words or ideas that are linked around a central theme. Putting down your ideas on a mind map really helps to concentrate your efforts to ensure you stay focus. But while mind maps are generally helpful, assembling one on your computer may require a map of its own. Instead of figuring out how to put one together yourself, text2mindmap has developed a site...

Produce informational videos with Viddix

Instructional videos or online reviews can sometimes be difficult to follow. Depending on watch you're watching it might be nice to have a second video displaying additional information that would aid in the presentation. Viddix may have found the answer to this in the form of their iPanel. Once you've uploaded your video to the website, you'll need to add cuepoints. These cuepoints allow you to...

Gramlee - Website for people who can't write good

Ever wish that Derek Zoolander had decided to open a night school? Or maybe opened a secondary school, so that once those kids that couldn't read good or do other stuff too well got better at it, they could go on to learn to do other things? What if Zoolander teamed up with the University of Phoenix, and offered online courses? Your prayers have been answered, sort of. Gramlee is an online service...
