Netvibes: Don’t want to be labeled a toady of the interwebs?

Netvibes:  Don’t want to be labeled a toady of the interwebs?
WEB APPS REVIEW

Right, going in deep for a bit of a net session.  First stop Gmail…login, have a squiz at what’s new, logout…on to Facebook…login, check my wall, check my messages, Greg and I are meeting at the Gangrenous Goblin for a pint later, logout…go to google maps to find out where in Hades the Gangrenous Goblin pub is…

Why do I feel like a toad, jumping from lily pad to lily pad?  I don’t like being a toad.  And before you correct me and say something like, “toads don’t sit on lily pads, that’s frogs” I will fend off your imminent destruction of my analogy by announcing this.

Netvibes takes the hopping out of your internet travel experience…whether you be toad, or frog, or amphibious kangypus.

Jack and Joe: Walking the fine line between storybook and game

Jack and Joe: Walking the fine line between storybook and game
IPHONE APPS REVIEW

Cuuuuute!  Even I thought so, and my tastes in animation are usually far more on the Tim Burton spectrum of things.  Cheerful, bright, friendly, chirpy…sounds deeply annoying, right?

Not for a tech savvy five year old like Luca.  She LOVED it.  Played Jack & Joe three times in a row without even blinking.  Had to remind her about that blinking thing as raisin eye is a serious condition.

Kayak HD pt1: Catch and Kiss

Kayak HD pt1: Catch and Kiss
IPAD APPS REVIEW

I threw a dart at a map and said, “I’m going there!”  Luckily the dart landed in South Auckland…not a biggy to get to from West Auckland.  A little more of a mission once I detoured past the Apple store to pick up a new iPad.  Darts and Google Earth don’t mix.  Go figure.

Earth Flags HD: Geography just got sexy.
IPAD APPS REVIEW

Getting ‘mappy’ just got a whole lot groovier…you know, mappy.  Cross map with happy.  Not buying it? Okay, what about ‘mapezy’…that’s crazy about maps…fine, I’ll give up, for now.

Invotrak: Better than a flock of winged flounder-monkeys!

Invotrak: Better than a flock of winged flounder-monkeys!
WEB APPS REVIEW

“Fly my flunkeys, fly!” screeched the freelance evil geneticist to his beloved flock of bat-winged flounder-monkeys.  Yes, the flounder-monkey.  Able to execute most simple minion tasks, and they taste wonderful when pan-fried with a little lemon and pepper.

What are you on about, Edwin? 

Flying flunkeys.  They’re just like invoices.  You send them out and they bring back the goodies.  And they’re tricky little buggers so you need to keep them on a tight leash.  Preferably remote control shock collar.  See?

No?  It’s okay.  Invotrak knows what I mean.

IPHONE APPS REVIEW

A tran-slater…a small multi-legged bug that eats rotten wood and likes to dress in drag.

Oh, sorry…a translator, someone who turns incomprehensible noise into something meaningful.  Someone or something that opens the door for you to a whole new world.

Now you’ve got fifty-seven off them…virtually dehydrated and crammed into the sleek casing of your iPhone, thanks to Google Translator.
