Of Thumbstacks and men…

Thumbstacks. Hmm…another online application, this time a Powerpoint type presentation app. OK, so it’s basic slideshow stuff, but it’s slick and fast and easy peasy to use. You’ve got to see the writing on the wall for kludgy expensive offline applications, if something as elegant and simple like this can pop up the drop of a hat. So where are we now? Online spreadsheet, word-processor, database (did we mention DabbleDB already?) and now presentation? Hmm, seems like a wrap to…

Free Danish dialler.

SGOOPE. Yet another silly named VoIP service, but with a twist. They pay you. Oh yes, we’re back in 1999 and everything’s kooky. The idea is that you watch banner ads while you’re making your free SGOOPE to SGOOPE, or even SGOOPE to Skype or SIP calls. These ad views earn you credit which you can use to make PC to PC or PC to landline calls anywhere across the world. Maximum you can earn is 12 minutes per call and…

Bubble or squeak?

Business IT Online. Free online calendar, financial modelling, contact management and business document management. Small case of deja vu looming. Last time I saw free online business applications on offer was during another…ahem….online boom in the nineties. Is history repeating? Unsustainable business plans again, or is the online advertising market solid enough nowadays to support this kind of ambitious venture? I would like to think that the bad old days are behind us and we’re now sailing in smoother, more…
