Krunch - Online WinZip Sort of Tool!



Krunch is a little tool intended to make your life easier.

You can easily:

  • Upload and compress files - Upload up to 10 files from your computer and compress them online.
  • Pick and compress files from the web - Upload a compressed archive and decompress it online.
  • Upload and un-compress a compressed archive - Fetch a compressed file directly from the web and decompress it online.
  • Un-compress a compressed file from the web - Gather files from the web and compress them online.

There’s a 10MB and 10 file limit on archives.



After you'll get the zipped file you want, you can send it by e.mail to your friends
as a download link or as attachment that will stay online only for 24 hours (that's really a short time).


Still I find this little tool very useful for those that don't have software that zipped files on their computers.

Start krunching, It's free.

Thank you Rogel.

WebRide - Discuss The Web!



A new application called Webride will automatically attaches discussion forums to each and every web page on the Internet.
It's really easy to function; all you have to do is to submit a link to a discussion that you interested in, it could be any thing from the web, not just blogs. After you publish it, you can tag the discussion in the way that you please.
That's easy :)

Than you can go to the front page, look for discussions that you like, join them, make comments, subscribe to interesting discussions and meet people that have the some interest as you do.
All your comments get aggregated on your personal profile page.

Some ways to perform your search:


I really liked the page split when you go into discussion. That way you can see the post and the comments all together. Cool.



The only thing that annoyed me is that you have to go to an external service and sign up there just to upload an avatar.. seem to me like to much trouble. but maybe it's just me..

Start here.

Markus You created a wonderful Webride Logo.

Springdoo Improving their Service for the Better!


I wrote about Springdoo before. I have to say that I'm impressed with the new updates from that service and I would like to take back some of the things I've said about Springdoo.

Springdoo is a free video & audio email service that lets you send voice messages to your friends in an easy and cool way.


So what's new from Springdoo:

  • You can create high quality video within your message
  • You can now email directly from Springdoo
  • Friends can instantly reply to you with or without being a Springdoo member
  • The service is easier, better and FASTER

I have to say something about the service speed:
When I first write about Springdoo I was unhappy with the performances of my computer. It's seems like Springdoo toke lots of my computer power and it was crashing every time that I was trying to send messages. BUT now it's a different! The service is lightsome and fast - perfect.

Moreover, you can also Auto-load or "Import" contacts from your existing email program.

A little problem that I think the team of Springdoo should fix is the: Remove Auto Login-it's not working well. I was trying to log out and it's always bringing me back to my user name.


I always liked the layout of this site, so cool! Great design and good usability make sending audio and video emails even faster, fun and easy to use.
And I love that Springdoo listen to their users and improve the service.
Good for them!

Camraoke - Digg for Your Favorite Karaoke YouTube Videos



Camraoke is a funny and easy to understand voting platform for YouTube videos with webcam-karaoke content.

First you have to find your favorite Karaoke video on YouTube.
Then:
Submitting a new video to Camraoke is really easy - you only need to register and submit the YouTube video URL - the rest will do the API to grab all the data. So it is very easy for users to recommend new videos to the platform. Registered users can "Boost" videos to the FrontPage by visiting the "New Entries" section to see new submitted videos. Videos that have reached a minimum of 10% of the highest vote will reach the FrontPage of Camraoke.



Camraoke was build in less than 2 days but the more the developers work on the Platform the more they loved it so they decided to go further with the idea. Because of that some new features will be adding in the next days like the ability to comments and more activities with other users.



For now the application will support only YouTube videos. The reason is because GoogleVideo did not have an API to grab video data for a specific video.
Too bad for them ;)

Camraoke will be available in few days.

I bump into this new search engine just today. It may not looks to you as fancy as some of the big engines around but it will give you great, perhaps better results within your searching.



Why go through all the trouble playing with tips & tricks when you can just look for the exact format you like?
The same goes to searching image or video. You can look for a specific format.

Moreover, you can perform your search with different languages :



I liked Ask Alexia very much, easy to use, lots of usability and good results for your search.
