Just a quick recommendation for a very good service that will let you build flow diagrams, the easiest way. Check out bubbl.us, a nice flash based application. Simply sign in and start create your desirable diagrams. Also you can print your work when you're done.
Too bad bubbl.us don't allow any sharing options - I wish they'll add some:
- embed diagrams on your blog
- share creations via email
- add links into the bubbles
Still cool though.
Avvenu allows you to directly route all your files on your computer. That route is open to your friends and you can share all your stuff from anyware.
Recently Avvenu announced their new product: The Avvenu Music Player. Avvenu player makes sharing music fast and easy. You can listen and Share your Apple iTunes Music from ANYWHERE!! Unlike other solutions, you do not have to be on the same home or office network or even within close proximity to another portable music player. As long as your share recipients are connected to the Internet, they can listen to the music you've shared - all you need is their email address. Using the Avvenu Music Player, you can easily and safely share your music with friends and family. When you share a playlist, your friend will get link via email allowing them to listen to your playlist within 5 days.
The "beta" version of the Avvenu Music Player lets you share up to 250 songs. When you choose playlists from your PC to share, the playlists and songs are automatically copied to Avvenu's secure media center for reliable, streaming playback. Once your songs and playlists are copied to Avvenu’s media center, you don't even have to leave your PC powered on.
The best thing about this player is that you can actually listen to your iTunes when it's offline and right from your browser and you don't even need Avvenu's client to be open on your own computer! Just choose your 250 favorites songs and within one click Avvenu will save it to your Anytime Playlists which will allows you later to listen to those playlists in any giving time, form any computer.
Simply install the Avvenu Music Player and you can listen to your music using the web browser on any other Internet- connected Windows or Macintosh, laptop, or Windows Mobile.
hopefully the next version will allow some video options.
My Anytime Playlist (available for 5 days starting from today)

I have to admit, when I first saw the name: Babelgum, I didn't except to find such as a powerful service behind it. I did like the logo, but the name didn't really provide any hints as to what I was about to find.
Kindly the Babelgum team allows me to be one of their Beta testers and I have to say that I was amazed from the moment I've have it on my machine.
Babelgum is a desktop client that allows their users to watch videos on their computer in a very TV-like experience. You can browse through the channels and choose your favorites show. You can rate the movies, add them to your favorites and watch them later on the video channel. Babelgum provide you with an AWESOME movie player which have some great innovative navigation tools. You can also watch a full screen movie with high quality streaming in it.
Just switch to the TV mode on the dock and start watching demo channels. You can use the remote control to pause or skip the clip currently playing in a channel and to zap between channels. When you come back to a channel, it starts playing exactly where you last left it!
Click again on the TV selector. A panel will pop up on the video screen, allowing you to browse through the programs of the available channels. You can bookmark the channels you like into your own folders by simple drag-and-drop of the channel icons. Also you can bookmark clips programmed in TV. Switch to Video mode and playback these clips.

A booBox is a tiny little box that will bring to your audience the wonderful world of e-commerce, without leaving your blog, using your words or pictures as a path to a shopping cart .

First, If you are an active member at Flickr, PowerSnap is totally for you!
PowerSnap allows you to Automate Photo Sharing – it’s a new product that’s Flickr friendly.
Send pictures privately to your friends or send them a subscription of your tags or albums. Anytime you upload a new photo your friends get the photos instantly. It's a slick, rich, beautiful flash application to manage your photos, send and receive subscriptions and sync with Flickr.
Each PowerSnap user can manage all their pictures sitting on their computer the same way they manage their photos on Flickr. Moreover, PowerSnap has a powerful two way synchronization feature with Flickr. Upload directly to Flickr and those pictures popup on PowerSnap. Change captions, tags or permissions on your Flickr pictures, right from PowerSnap.
With PowerSnap you can subscribe to photos from your Flickr friends. Any time one of your friends uploads pictures to their Flickr set you have subscribed to, you'll receive those photos in your PowerSnap “Photo Inbox” instantly.
PowerSnap is still in alpha mode but it works so good, I recommend you warmly to try the software without hesitate that.
A quick test drive with Schmedley startpage gave me some good experience and great results within my search.
At first I thought this is no more than just another homepage with some cool widgets on it but at Schmedley, almost every widget is actually a channel. Each channel offers data that is diverse and sometimes hard to get at, and organizes it into one clean, easy-to-use interface. In many cases schmedley becomes a content provider, dedicated to offering an innovative way to carry out different web searches and perform specific tasks while gathering data from various sources. Even greater functionality is achieved by giving users the ability to store and manipulate personalized data relevant to each task at hand.
As a result of that you get rich Internet application that will allows you to:
Move the widgets (schmidgets) around the page to your liking, change the homepage background color and enter “default” values in some of the schmidget text fields. When you'll return to schmedley - your homepage will be just as you left it.
Search images through flickr
Track stocks information
Set all your desirable RSS feeds in one place
Run multiple search
Easy to search at Amazon
Get your city forecast with radar & satellite map
Also try: Schmedly Movies, Schmedly Airfare and Schmedly IM
Schmedley is still in alpha mode and currently working on some new feature that will go live soon.

from SuperGu about-us:
SuperGu software combines social bookmarking, blogging, and syndication. It was inspired by Meneame, Del.icio.us and Reddit.
SuperGu supports crowdsourcing of links, images, videos, blogs, commenting and feedback. SuperGu lets you submit, discuss, and promote any content you want.
It was inspired by Meneame, Del.icio.us and Reddit?! So how come all their screenshots looks precisely like it's been copied from Digg??
I bump into Digg clones every day but this is way beyond inspiration!
Moreover, this totally wrong not to even mention the word digg anywhere in their (SuperGu) introducing!
Try their Demo

Update! The Demo URL redirecting now to Meneame. Weird.
