with one comment

jolicloudOk, We have been looking very excited to the Jolicloud Social OS which is set to launch soon — now there have been quite a lot of developments going on for Jolicloud. Jolicloud’s website is now live with lots of changes and Jolicloud is now officially at private alpha stage and you would need an invitation code in order to download Jolicloud. We don’t really have much all the exact details on Jolicloud but it seems like Jolicloud can be installed on Windows, Mac and Linux, and lots of netbook models are supported as well:

  • Acer- Aspire One, Aspire 150
  • Asus- Eee PC 700, 701SD, 900, 901, 904HD, 1000, 1000H, 1000HD, S101 / Eee Box B202 / Eee Top 1602
  • Compaq- Mini 700EF
  • Dell- Mini 9, Mini 10v
  • HP- Mini 1000
  • Intel- Classmate and derivated
  • Lenovo- S-10
  • MSI- Wind 100, Wind 120
  • Samsung- NC-10, N-310




Here are some pictures to show you what Jolicloud looks like, taken from the Jolicloud’s website. Jolicloud looks sweet and you can expect this to be the wannabe of all social addict around (like me ;)) — and to be grabbing Jolicloud once it launches officially. Until then, let the Jolicloud team iron out the final bugs before releasing Jolicloud for the prime time.

Google Quick Search is the latest update by Google to its desktop suite, Google Desktop, which allows you to search for “applications and local files on your computer, to web search and navigational suggestions, to items from your browser history and contacts But the great thing is the ability to tweet while you are using Google Quick Search Box using a Twitter plug-in Not you can google while you tweet — literally. Other than than, Google might just consider searching tweets from Twitter as their next great feature.

with 2 comments

stumbleuponWe all know that Digg has their own DiggBar — so why not StumpleUpon? Now apparently, StumpleUpon is trying to catch up on the latest URL shortening game with its new URL shortener, Su.pr In short, here is what Su.pr is all about:

All you have to do is type your message, enter the URL of the site you’d like to share with your friends and followers, hit post and the message is posted along with the shortened URL. In addition to this simple syndication method, we provide you with tools to identify the best times to post, schedule future posts and see real-time results on clicks, tweets and traffic associated with your posts.

Check out these pictures taken from the Stumbleupon site, we have to say Su.pr might just be great though we have not tried it out yet. Currently, Su.pr is in beta and you need an invite code in order to access it, but it seems like Su.pr will be opening up in time to come so sit back and wait while we track its latest developments.

Facebook Launches Vanity URLS For All Users

with 5 comments

facebookEver wanted to have your own Facebook profile URL like facebook.com/username similar to Twitter? Now you can — once Facebook’s vanity URL feature goes live on 12:01 a.m. EDT on Saturday, June 13. Here is how it works: on this paricular date, you’ll be able to choose a username on a first-come, first-serve basis for your profile and the Facebook Pages that you administer by visiting www.facebook.com/username/ Here is what Facebook says about for choosing your own profile’s vanity URL:

facebook vanity url

Facebook usernames will be available in basic text forms, and you can only choose a single username for your profile and for each of the Pages that you administer. Your username must be at least five characters in length and only include alphanumeric characters (A-Z, 0-9), or a period or full stop (“.”)

facebook url

Facebook has been experimenting with this new feature for quite a while for some profiles like Mashable and having this feature adds a great sense of identity to your Facebook profile and much more like a homepage like Twitter. This is gonna be a first-come-first-serve basis so note this date on your calender, Plus, note that once your username has been selected, you won’t be able to change or transfer it.
