Swap Simple.

Swap Simple. A rather interesting  online swap shop for books, video games and DVDs. What’s interesting is that you can start ordering immediately you join, although you’ll have to be honest if you don’t want to get ‘fined’ by the service for non-delivery. [Thanks Danny]  List the books, DVDs, or video games you no longer need. At the time you list them, SwapSimple figures out their current market value, and instantly awards you Trade Credits in that amount. You can then…

Wiki How.

wikiHow. Online collaborative How-To manual. Nice idea, but I wonder if there are people who spend their lives donating content to all these collaborative wiki type sites, like there are people who spend all their time entering competitions. Maybe soon there’ll be some sort of Collaborate Weekly magazine?  wikiHow is a collaborative writing project to build the world’s largest how-to manual. With your contributions, we can create a free resource that helps people by offering clear, concise solutions to the…

Video vim.

Vimeo. A Flikr for video? Upload video shorts from camphones,or whatever, and share with others. One neat aspect is that you are automatically assigned a private email address for posting clips to your page. Kinda neat and free.  Vimeo is a site for organizing and sharing video clips. The beta version of this site launched in mid February, 2005…Some of the technology behind Vimeo includes Apache (server software), PHP (programming), MySQL (database), and FFMPEG-PHP (thumbnails). The inspiration for this site, most prominently,…

TV Genius.

TV Genius. Awesome online search service which lets you look for your favourite movies and programmes and set up reminders, which will either email you or SMS your mobile phone on the morning that they’re being broadcast on TV. UK only at the moment (but there’s no reason why they shouldn’t roll this out internationally I guess), and just superb. Now if only you could set up reminders by SMS or email as well…  How do I use the TV Genius?…

SmugMug Maps.

SmugMug Maps. A nice hack of a commercial service which combines Google Maps with 32 million photos to provide a geo-oriented images map. Cool indeed.   smugMaps is easily one of the most fun features we’ve added to smugmug. Through the power of Google’s publicly available Maps API and smugmug’s huge photo database, we’ve enabled location-based searching for photos all over the world…In fact, we built smugMaps as a proof-of-concept and hope that other people take the idea and built even…

Future tech.

The British Telecom Timeline. There’s nothing so foolish or futile as forecasting the future [fabulous falliteration – Ed], but someone needs to tell BT. This little technological timeline stretches to infinity and beyond (well OK 2055) and makes some bold predictions. Artificial brains by 2044, genetically engineered teddy bears by  2041? Tell you what, let’s meet back here in 50 to see if it turns out to be correct? You can log on via holographic thought waves. Oh yes. Downloadable version…

VoIP Wiki.

The VoIP Wiki. Very neat idea, a wiki documenting all this new trendy Internet phone tech. From the comments though, it looks as though it’s being hit by a bit of advertising spam, so be nice and help it out, eh? The Ferret knows how hard it is to keep a wiki clean.  This Wiki covers everything related to VOIP, software, hardware, service providers, reviews, configurations, standards, tips & tricks and everything else related to voice over IP networks, IP…
