Twitpic founder launches Heello

Twitpic founder Noah Everett announces the launch of Heello today. His second web app project has been in the wings for exactly one year. Twitter has launched its own photo-sharing tool, offering a native version of a feature that until now was mostly the domain of third-party apps like Twitpic and yfrog. This move puts pressure on those third-party apps as a logical choice for photo-sharing that uses Twitter’s API.

I have mashed up an exclusive by Jolie O’Dell and a few of my first experiences with Heello after its unofficial launch day. Read more »

The Rules of Twitter

A very popular social media trend right now is to discuss in length all about  the growing pains of everyday problems users are facing with Facebook on the Twitter platform.

So with this mind-set I have adapted the Fight Club Rules to fit my personal pet peeve. Read more »

Apple Responds to Adobe

When Steve’s Thoughts on Flash was officially posted on the big stage, you bet Adobe had an opinion.

First, there’s “Open”, he stated first in his list of six major problems with Adobe’s pride and joy, Flash. In Steve’s open letter he states: “Flash was created during the PC era – for PCs and mice. Flash is a successful business for Adobe, and we can understand why they want to push it beyond PCs. But the mobile era is about low power devices, touch interfaces and open web standards – all areas where Flash falls short”. Read more »

When to use “Off The Grid” on Foursquare

There are two concepts in regards to “Off the Grid”. The foursquare concept is as follows: If you turn all of the little on/off switches to off (on the check in screen, they say who to share with) you’ll be off the grid. Off the grid means you’re hiding your location from the world. Why would you want to check in “off the grid?” You could be on a date, out to dinner with your parents, or someplace you don’t want people to know about; all while still wanting to check in to earn badges and see your check-ins later in your history page (which will include your own private, “off the grid” check-ins).
