New In Google Latitude: Share Your Location On The Go

with 2 comments

google-latitudeWant your readers and buddies to know what location you are at- anytime, anywhere? Now Google Latitude, a newly launched Google extensions has just the apps for it, and we are talking about two really neat and interesting applications called Google public location badge and Google Talk location status (beta) which are really easy to use. Just plug your mobile phone in by pointing towards google.com/latitude and you are good to go. Here are the details on what exactly Google Latitude does for you:

  • See where your friends are and what they are up to
  • Quickly contact them with SMS, IM, or a phone call
  • Control your location and who gets to see it

The new public location badge lets you publish your latest latitude position to your website or blog after you embed them on your site by putting some code while on the other hand, Google Talk location status lets you share your Latitude location with all your Gmail chat and Google Talk contacts which will update automatically when you are on the move. These applications are only available in the US for now but they should be coming to other countries pretty soon.

Putting aside the usual privacy issues, these apps could just prove useful to people who are reaching out to a large audience on a regular basis while on the move, like someone biking around the world or traveling elsewhere while updating their latest location almost in real-time. And in all that midst of the newly launched Google Latitude, we would be keeping an eye for the latest developments and updates on this cool and interesting app.

Official Reddit iPod Touch/iPhone App Launches [But Not Free]

with 2 comments

redditreddit has released an official iPod Touch/iPhone version of reddit called iReddit which cost $1.99 and has all the reddit functions that you need: vote, comment, share and save links all in one neat interface and includes other silly functions such as a “serenedipity mode”. Here is a quick video to show you what it looks like:

While we think iReddit looks pretty awesome, you might want to wait for a while for the ad-supported free version of iReddit to be released before buying the paid version. Meanwhile you may want to consider using the open source reddit which is a free and open-source reddit iPod Touch/iPhone App or best of all use the Mobile reddit!!

Q And A: Sure-Fire Sites To Getting Your Questions Answered

with 5 comments

yahoo-answersThere are usually times when you were not able to find  the answers to your questions that you wanted on Google. The solution to this problem is simple: Q And A sites. Q And A sites are basically sites where you can ask or search through millions of questions in order to get the answers you want. Today, we will review some awesome Q And A sites and compare them side-by-side.

  • Yahoo! Answers: Before going on other other sites to find an answer to your question, stop at Yahoo! Answers first. The site has lots of questions archived and you should be able to get a quick answer with a simple search. If not, just sign up for an account and start asking. The answers are quite prompt and the interface is sleek with a mix of social networking.
  • WikiAnswers: Your next stop should be WikiAnswers if you cannot find your answers on Yahoo! Answers. Unlike Yahoo! Answers, the answers can be edited by the users of the site and looks a lot more like a wiki.
  • Answerbag: Also another Q And A site that provides many answers though the interface is not as good as Yahoo! Answers. You can also rate the questions based on what you feel about the questions being asked.

Overall, Yahoo! Answers is my personal favorite and I have been using it for quite a while. Q And A sites are really good sites for looking for casual answers that might not otherwise be found on search engines. Which is your favorite Q And A sites? Drop us a comment and let us know or get our exclusive blog updates by email or RSS!! :D

instapaperThere is so much content and stuffs on the web, and it is never possible to finish reading all those things at one shot. That is where Instapaper comes in useful. Unlike ordinary social bookmarks, this website serves as a complete bookmarking tool which is packed with features such as a bookmarklet that lets you “read later” stuffs that you have not finished reading with a simple click and a text version of the articles.

If that is not enough, there is also an iPhone version of it which has cool features like offline access so you can read your unfinished articles anywhere. Know any other neat apps to enhance your productivity? We want to hear it!! :D
