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…

The LED Museum.

The LED Museum. More…oh so much more…than you’ll ever, EVER, want to know about LEDs in all their forms. Flashlight reviews, user mods, acronyms, top picks…I’m exhausted just thinking about it.

Firefox secrets.

The Secrets of Firefox 1.0.  With all this momentum, it’s fascinating to find that many powerful capabilities of Firefox 1.0 are still difficult to find and little known. For example, typing the following strings into Firefox’s Address Bar (which the new browser calls the Location Bar) and pressing Enter brings up a wide variety of novel applets:
