those JQuery guys (and we all know who that is) are really busy lately, one more minor and very pleasant surprise http://ow.ly/38yZU
Just when I thought that I have everything figured out, dumped GoogleDocs in favor of Zoho and things started to settle, I discover ThinkFree. It would be more fair to say, rediscover, because I knew about them for quite some time, but it didn’t left some impression that would make me return I guess. I read recently blog post about them and I wanted to check them out. It turns out, their offering, however lesser in features especially compared to Zoho, is very polished and can replace MS Office for real. I had a problem when I get MS Office file that I can’t easily open it in Zoho. Actually I can just I didn’t want to install extensions I guess. Anyway, the way ThinkFree does it makes more sense to me at the moment. And it is great that I have so much choice and alternatives available.
Zoho still stays my main suite but I can see myself using ThinkFree for certain tasks. This blog post is written using ThinkFree Note.
New WordPress is out. Download it here. It is obvious that they spent a lot of effort to make it more easy to use. New admin interface is really good, I was used to old one but I can see how this one can help new and inexperienced blogger find things.
Lame attacks on WordPress from TypePad? founder just show how out of touch someone can be. WordPress is currently the best platform for personal publishing,period.
We at Dakic OnLine, love to use WP to produce websites, it gives better functionality and more power to our clients. It is not for every site, but quite often it is great choice. Just recently we made http://lokater.net , which is still on old version, however I have one new site almost done and I used RC something version which was upgraded to full version seamlessly. I will not tell url because it is not done completely. I can only say that it works great, new interface is well organized and also version 2.5 works with plugins I used well.
StatCounter.com one of a premier website statistics providers, one that we love and prefer to use just became better. They increased log size to 500 for free accounts, it was 100 before.
StatCounter has great service that enables people to monitor multiple sites and get easy to read results. They offer more drill down services for those paying accounts and size of log enables people to drill down. Previously for free accounts it was 100 which honestly left few things to be desired, now with 500 it is almost there. I think 1000 last hits is enough for a website to be able to track what is happening, so with 500 they are almost there, and frankly I should open up finally and pay.
I read rave reviews of Tangler australian startup company. I had to check it out, but I was skeptical all along, how come discussion can be innovated, I suspected it will be mish-mash of all things web2.0 .
It turns out that it has enought web2.0 features, but in a way that is not burning your eyes when you see them. I love how they handle discussion, even without ability to post video or image files to discussion.
Discussion flows naturally at Tangler, it has everything that it needs to make true innovation on web-forum. It is genuine step forward which actually facilitate social interactions, instead of bloating it with excessive features.
I love everything about it and this is one of the apps when you see it, you think ‘Why couldn’t I think of something like that.
If there is any feature I wish they have, and they most likely have it in another form, that would be ability to create mini-Tanglers. So that I can create Tangler for topic areas I would like to discuss and that I can influence design and appearance and layout. That way Tangler could be integrated into existing discussion groups (they can keep the topic and upgrade the software) and would probably help spread it more.
Each week I get email from Springwise with new and innovative ideas, trends and information about business. These are really innovative approaches, fresh views and also information about what people are doing and how they are innovating in other countries, mostly western Europe.
I find it refreshing to read and would heartily recommend it.
