We have been following the Minimo project for almost a year, and they have definitely made some progress. The last big release, however, was several months back and this has caused some people to think that the project is no longer active.

Not to be confused with youtube.com/mobile which allows you to upload YouTube videos from you phone, the new YouTube Mobile will make it easy to watch your favorite videos from your cell phone, rate them, and comment.
Microsoft can hardly keep a secret which is why information on a secret black Xbox has been floating around for quite some time. If you’re an Xbox fan then April 29 (in U.S. and Canada) is going to be the date for you to remember. That’s when they will be releasing the coveted Xbox 360 Elite that is complete with a 120GB hard drive, HDMI port, black case, and black controller.
Some of you have said that you’d never have a reason to switch back to Yahoo Mail – you tried them, left them, and you’re not going back. In May of this year, Yahoo will start unrolling unlimited email storage to all of their customers.
Firefox is an extremely customizable browser, and combining that with the growing popularity of widescreen monitors results in more sidebars. I used to never use sidebars before I got a widescreen computer because it just took up extra screen space that was otherwise pretty useful. Now you’ll hardly ever find me with a sidebar not open on my computer!
The Google Blog just announced that the Google Pack is getting some new software. The two new additions are Symantec’s Norton Security Scan and PC Tools’ Spyware Doctor Starter Edition.
Google has spent some time revamping their new mobile search, and now they’re ready to make it available to anybody who wants to try it out. Nice timing. am I the only one that finds it coincidental that this comes right after Yahoo launches their revamped service?
It looks like Microsoft sees the value in widgets much like those introduced with the iPhone. Just today, Microsoft announced their backing of a company called ZenZui who is looking to change the way you navigate the web on your mobile device with their “zooming” mobile browser.
I’ve always been told that if something is too good to be true then it probably is. I sure hope that’s not the case with the new meta search engine Younanimous because it is already really remarkable, and there is still a lot more to come!
I frequently get asked how people can setup their own FTP. Some of the current programs available always seem intimidating with the extensive list of configuration options when most people only want to access their own documents when they’re away from their PC.
Microsoft was finally able to take a step back and look at how many licenses of Vista are actually in use right now. According to their numbers, there were more than 20 million licenses sold from January 30 to February 28. That is nothing short of impressive!
Zoho is taking their Sheets online spreadsheet application a little further by introducing some new features that cover ground that Google already has, but they’re also taking it one step ahead.
Last week when YouTube announced that they were starting the first ever YouTube awards, it was received with a mix of opinions. Some thought it was a great idea, others screamed copycat saying that YouTube was copying off of an online-video awards show called Vloggies. YouTube said the award show was their way to reflect on a great year and recognize the best videos of 2006.
Zimbra has launched their Desktop Web 2.0 Application for download, and what’s special about it is that it offers both online and offline functionality which means you can work no matter where you are.
A few weeks ago DivShare got a pretty cool upgrade that allowed folder creation for any files that you uploaded. It was nice, but I was a little disappointed because they didn’t offer the option to move existing files into folders.
So far in our mini series covering Microsoft Word 2007, we’ve offered tips and tricks to help you get the most from one of the most widely used programs. Last week we covered mail merges which can save you loads of time, and are easy to do.
Okay, so a few days ago we reported that Mozilla had launched their new Add-on Site on the day that they scheduled it. Shortly after they posted it they were forced to remove it because of an overloaded server. I just noticed that the new site is now back up, but I’m not sure if it is for keeps.
