What's Going On In The World



IBCTODAY will give you a better perspective with what's going on on the glob today.
The site is an online broadcast news network that uses its proprietary technology to repackage video news aggregated from global news agencies, broadcasters and users. IBCTODAY adding between 70-90 (over 1.5 hours) global news video clips a day! The site is also produces English subtitles, on most of the videos rather than voice-over to ensure integrity of the original content.

Watch interactive, on-demand content or upload news to the site yourself. While watching a video you can also read it text story or get some other relevant videos/stories - next to the video you're watching.



I've seen lots of video services but I must say, I like this one. It's very easy to understand and navigate through the content, and basically get a good and quick view on things that going on around us.

Facebook what the hell..?



I just found out that I can't confirm friends anymore without to inform the whole world where I know them from. I never liked this stage that you need to confirm everyone, but with the SKIP option, I didn't really care to go over it. Now, it is just annoying.



Bummer!

A Great new service from Facebook : Facebook Flyers.
The service allows you to create relevant advertisements for universities or regional locations.

Facebook Flyers start at $5 to display your Flyer 2,500 times. The cost will change as you increase the run times.

I really like the idea, I think it is the easiest and smartest way today to promote your site/blog/company or whatever it is you want people to discover.

I'm Addicted to Pownce But..



The good about Pownce:
  • Very easy to use (yeah I know, twitter too)
  • Users can send links and files (10 MB max/100 MB pro users)
  • Easily send events invitations
  • Better view of your community
  • Killer design!
  • Lovely Facebook application
  • Works with Netvibes and iGoogle (get module here)
  • You can use Pownce from your desktop (AdobeAir desktop software)
  • You can find all your Digg friends there.. which is kinda cool
The bad:
  • Not enough invitations (per user)
  • No widget for your blog/webpage
  • There is no option to link from a comment
  • Private and Public messages are in the same color (that's confusing)
  • No alert on your page when someone sending you a private massage (I totally missed some of them because of that)
  • No mobile integration
The Ugly:

Wishood Can Make Wishes Come True



There are services that I like to pay more attention to, since I know they are more then just Web applications. Wishood is one of them.
I wrote about this company back in January but now they re-launched and there is a nice story behind it that's worth a post.

Wishood is a place where people can share and grant each other's wishes. Publicize all your heart's desires with friends, family, the world. Once a wish has been made, people can offer to grant it for you.

Wishood run the new version on a small scale for only a few weeks but the good vibes are already felt. Check out this unique wish:
“I wish I could drive a train. I'd love to ride for fun but I also long to be a real train engineer. I want to show my son that I can be somebody...that wishes really can come true.”
After reading comments and offers to grant this wish, I can honestly say - I'm touched. I do hope to see this wish granted soon. Check it out here.



A member's profile at Wishood is based on one's wishes and granting activities. Referring to wishes of others draws more attention to and appreciations of your very own wishes – by granting others you can make your own wishes come true.

Wishood hopes to make this platform useful for people all over the world as well as for organizations and sponsors who would choose to join the wishing and granting community.

Please Digg
