Blinds with web 2.0 logos

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on July 11th, 2008

Blinds with web 2.0 logosNets2go has a new set of 9 custom-made wood blinds, but they’re not the kind you find in home decor stores. They feature Web 2.0 logos. You can get them in Google flavor, Firefox, YouTube, Digg, Stumbleupon, Facebook, even Wordpress. Just be warned, being this geeky could cost you your marriage.

In fact, these blinds have an interesting story. Net2go manufactured the entire set for a customer who separated from his wife a couple of weeks after installing these blinds, because “She doesn’t understand the intense geek in me”. Maybe he should have added match.com into the mix.

Posted in Web 2.0 by Nino Marchetti on April 15th, 2008


Ever feel lonely rolling down the road in your Segway? The company behind the two wheeled people mover platform wants to help you connect with other Segway users locally and globally and has launched a social networking site to help all interact in a global movement of harmony and conversion. Segway Social has been born.

The idea behind Segway Social is to let Segway users have a central place in which they can create profiles, join groups, tag glides, share photos and more in an online community setting. The site is free to join and is also being used as a marketing tool by Segway to educate non-owners about its product.

Yahoo oneConnect social communication toolYahoo is bringing to the mobile space a product it feels will make it more convenient to manage your social communications in one place. This product is called Yahoo oneConnect and the company expects it will be available in the second quarter of the year.

Yahoo oneConnect is built around an open architecture which brings together email, instant messaging (IM), text messaging (SMS), and social networks into one central, mobile location. A centrally managed “socially-connected” address book will let one view status updates, photo uploads and the recent activity of contacts across various social networks. This same open design will let one talk across a range of popular online services.

Yahoo kicks off live video streaming

y-live.jpgYahoo last night quietly kicked off a new competitor to YouTube which lets anyone “create their own live video experience.” It is called Y! Live and you can access it for free.

Y! Live is targeted towards people who want to do live video broadcasting. Through it Yahoo sees people, for example, broadcasting live musical performances and interacting with fans with video and chat. The broadcast can be embedded, so viewers don’t have to go to the Y! Live site to view it.
