How’s My Driving? Dial My License Plate

May 22, 2007

“IN “American Graffiti,” the character played by Richard Dreyfuss spends much of the movie pursuing a mysterious woman played by Suzanne Somers, who drives a white Ford Thunderbird.If only they had SameLane, a service that allows drivers to call strangers on the road by dialing their license plate numbers into cellphones. A CB radio for this century, SameLane is aimed at commuters stuck in traffic, long-haul drivers fighting fatigue and good Samaritans trying to help people with broken taillights and such.

To use the service, which goes live on Monday, drivers register their cellphone and license plate numbers with SameLane, which sends them bumper stickers identifying the drivers as part of the SameLane network. After spotting a member, drivers dial a company number, punch in the license plate number of the car they want to reach and wait for SameLane’s computers to connect the call.

Registration and the first three calls of up to three minutes each are free. Callers then pay $1.99 a minute using a debit account that must be set up on SameLane’s site, samelane.com. Of course, if drivers like each other, they can exchange cellphone numbers and talk without SameLane.”

Website: Bringo – No More Waiting To Talk To A Human

May 16, 2007

“Bringo is the cure for the common phone tree. Anybody who has called a credit card company or an airline, wanting to speak to an actual person knows it is not an easy task. I know that it can be very frustrating always getting sent to another automated operator, when all you want is to ask a question, or get an answer. Bringo saves you the hassle of waiting to get a human voice on the other end of the phone. You select the company you would like to call from a large list of companies on Bringo’s web page. After entering your phone number, Bringo will call you back with a person from the company on the phone for you to talk to.”

Website: Flickrvision – Watch Photos As They’re Added To Flickr In Real-Time

May 16, 2007

“Enter flickrvision. One part Google Maps, one part eavesdropping, 100% fun; flickrvision lets you watch users uploading photos live. The map view shows where the user is uploading from and a small snapshot of the photo is displayed over the location. Clicking on the photo reveals a larger version in the center of the screen while map continues to update in the background. Clicking on a user name takes you, as you might expect, to the users profile on flickr. It is a pretty simple concept but quickly becomes wildly addictive.”

Website: NetSearchEngine.net – More Defined Searches

May 15, 2007

“netsearchengine is a new kind of search engine that combines smart user collaboration with the strength of Google powered algorithmic search. netsearchengine consists of a network of twenty vertical search engines. the index of each vertical search engine is created through a continuous, collaborative editing process. each website or web page within the search index is suggested by users and verified by a majority vote.

when you perform a search using one of the vertical search engines, the results will reference only pages contained within the collaboratively edited vertical index. rather than searching the entire internet, you are searching a pre-defined slice of the internet which is more specific to your categorical intent. your search results will be more focused and relevant to your needs.

try netsearchengine and see what its like to search smarter.”

Open an online store for free and make money, what could be better?

February 8, 2007

“Start your own online shop in 5 minutes.  Choose your products and earn commissions on each sale !”

You get to decide on a layout to use, products to sell, and a subdomain (yourname.zlio.com) to use.   You can then spam (er, ah, advertise) your site to your friends and family to get their money.

Sounds pretty similar to CafePress doesn’t it?

Netvibes module developer collects web credentials

February 8, 2007

“A French security blogger gained access to private user data on personal homepage service Netvibes last weekend, exposing stored usernames and passwords for popular integrated web services as well as user content loaded in the page. The blogger’s account has since been deleted from Blog*Spot (currently cached on Yahoo!), but he provided extended details to French blog Le blog de ¥€$ (English translation). Netvibes has since claimed to patch “a security vulnerability in webnotes” exploited by this developer. I alluded to some of these issues with stored user information, phishing, and general brand confusion in a post two months ago about the popularity of available widgets regardless of their makers.”
