Amzini: A machete in the jungle of social media

Amzini: A machete in the jungle of social media
WEB APPS REVIEW

So many peoples, so little time.  Facebook’s a soulless metropolis, you’d have better luck standing in Piccadilly Circus shouting ‘Here I am!  Socialize with me!’

Nope, for those of us with more particular socializing tastes, say over a good bootie knitting session…

...yes, I’m talking about knitting little slippers, what were you thinking of…

...then Amzini could be a worthy first port of call.

Grooveshark: Even Jaws never sounded this good

Grooveshark: Even Jaws never sounded this good
WEB APPS REVIEW

Cruising the melodic oceans…a Grooveshark hunting with harmonic hunger.  A romantic image…a very ‘bloody’ apt one.

If the oceans were as teeming with fish as Grooveshark is with music the sharks of the world would be a fat, lazy bunch indeed.

Project Noah: Amateur naturalists of the world unite
WEB APPS REVIEW

“I say, Livingstone, is that a sasquatch I see before me?”

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.

Bounce: Web surfing with a mission

Bounce: Web surfing with a mission
WEB APPS REVIEW

This kind of big glossy sex beast of a picture juxtaposed with an angry sable border.  This funky-assed font with an excruciating minimum of extraneous wordage.  And interactive swoopy bits by the fandango.  Got that, Fuji?  Great, make it sing, Fuji-baby.  Make it sing.

Fancy: Whatever takes your fancy, really

Fancy: Whatever takes your fancy, really
WEB APPS REVIEW

Being a virtual magpie.  You know, flying around collecting up lots of shiny stuff…it’s fun.  And it beats doing it in the real world where, after years of ‘magpieing’, you end up with rooms full of dust-collecting crap.  Been there, done that, having a garage sale tomorrow.

Fancy lets you do the magpie thing in style, with ease, and without having to entice your poor friends over for a cup of tea and a tour of your dusty, claustrophobia inducing hoarder lair.

Music Hype: A place to wallow in music

Music Hype: A place to wallow in music
WEB APPS REVIEW

I used to be a complete music junky.  As a kid I would record the Sunday top 30 on tape and then use my tape to tape electronic keyboard to make compilations to give out to my friends at school.  I listened to hours and hours and hours of music.  I saved up money working on the farm for my first ever big purchase…a stereo.

Had Music Hype been around in those days, I would have been there, 24/7.  No really.  I lived on a farm and it was a ten kilometre cycle to my nearest friend. 

24/7.
