XXX top-level domain finally approved, 300,000 domains already reserved

After 7 years of rigorous back-and-forth mass debating over the creation of the .XXX top-level domain (TLD), ICANN has approved its introduction. You can reserve domains through its sponsor, ICM Registry, and .XXX domains will cost at least $60 to register once they become available in the next couple of months. Don't get too excited about securing a money shot domain, though: at the time of...

Mockingbird is a fantastic in-browser tool for creating website wireframes

Sometimes you've got an idea in your head for a website or page layout, or even for an application. But then you need to somehow get it out of your head and actually look at it, or show it to someone. While drawing on the back of a napkin is a time-honored strategy, that is not always ideal because you can't edit your drawing later, and it may be difficult to share. Mockingbird is like a...

Apple website updated with HTML5 goodness

Whenever Apple's website goes down, there's speculation about a new product announcement. No white iPhone 4 today, though, just an HTML5-powered redesign of Apple.com itself. There's some subtle animation (try clicking on the Mac or iPod tabs), a new, darker nav bar, and a slight gradient to the background. The only big usability improvement here is the new magically-expanding search field...

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...

Binaerpilot launches pro-piracy music album with crowdsourced funding

Alexander Støver is a Norwegian musician and the man behind Binaerpilot, a pro-piracy 'chip music from the future' project, as he describes it. He's been at this since 2002, but now he's finished a full electro album called Nordland. Nordland is available to download for free from Binaerpilot in MP3 or FLAC form or can be listened to on Last.fm and Jamendo. The most popular songs seem...

Evernote unveils bookmarking tool for website owners

Evernote, the popular clipping and note-taking service, has announced the availability of a new bookmarking tool called Site Memory. Unlike existing browser-based Evernote clipping methods (like add-ons and the bookmarklet), Site Memory is a button which site owners and maintainers display directly on their own pages. As a way to promote Evernote, Site Memory is a great idea -- since it will no...

Prowl extension for Google Chrome lets you send websites to your iPhone

Looking for a simple way to push websites from your desktop browser to your iPhone? If you're using Google Chrome (or Chromium), you might want to take a look at the Prowl extension. You'll need to sign up on the official Prowl website first and generate an API key for yourself. Once you've got that, grab the extension and add your key in its options screen. After that, simply click the cat...

Google Chrome tells you when it isn't just you that can't access a website

It's frustrating to wind up on a site which appears to be down. Is it something screwy with your computer? Maybe you're having DNS resolution problems? Perhaps your ISP dropped the ball? You wonder, "are other people having the same problem?!" Fortunately you can tap into services like downforeveryoneorjustme.com to provide an answer -- if your Twitter stream isn't already flooded with...

BaseKit beta give-away and exclusive 'webinar' for Download Squad readers

Yesterday we reviewed BaseKit, a web app that lets you build websites from scratch, or from imported Photoshop PSD files. Really, all you have to do is import a PSD and drag a bunch of widgets around, and you have a beautiful W3C-compliant CSS/HTML website. And now we have some beta keys to give away! In a change from the norm, we're giving away the keys on our Facebook page -- to enter just...

BaseKit is a web app that generates websites from Photoshop PSD files

The folks at BaseKit think that the process of website creation is due for an overhaul -- and boy do I agree! The time for writing code in an editor, creating artwork in another app and uploading it all bit-by-bit is OVER. The folks at BaseKit pose a good question: why don't we make websites online, in the browser? There are some nascent attempts, like the cheap-and-cheerful approach of Google...

Pingdom Desktop Notifier tells you when your web site goes down

A little while back, the Pingdom crew released a handy iPhone app which enables on-the-go monitoring of your website through their service. Now they've added a desktop application to the mix - perfect for those times when you're relaxing comfortably at your workspace. The notifier runs on Windows XP, Vista, and 7, and it's dead simple to set up and use. Install it, enter your credentials, and...

The future of HTML is looking bright: file-system and external device access in the works

There's been a lot of HTML-related news recently: first there was the WebGL draft standard, then editor's draft for the File API and now it looks like there's going to be support for devices. At long last, your browser will have access to your webcam, microphone and other external devices without Flash or other pre-requisite plug-ins. This is yet another big change that will make its way into...

A list of dumb things to check

We've all been there; we've got a problem with our server, laptop, PC, website, or blog, and have tried to solve it for hours with no success. At some point, we reach that point where we're absolutely certain that it's just some dumb thing that we're overlooking or forgetting to check. If you've ever found yourself in that situation, you'll probably want to bookmark a list of dumb things to...

Fugly Friday: RogerART

I would be remiss in continuing this series without a stop at RogerART.com -- a throwback on the web in so many ways. Run by Earth Citizen Roger Drowne, the site is all text and GIF's, they way HTML 1.0 intended. Roger's message is pure, I'll give him that. He revels in being consistently lumped into the "worst" website category, which I think is terrific. Roger has some painting ability with...

Fake Name Generator Creates Your Alter Ego

Anyone who has gained super powers through radiation exposure, cosmic rays, or scientific experimentation gone wrong knows how painfully difficult it can be to conceal your identity after the fact. Fortunately, there's a web site that will help you make the process much, much simpler. Fake Name Generator does so much more than what its moniker implies. Not only will it create a (usually)...
