How could I miss that. I was regularly checking skype.com to see when the video feature would be available for their famous Voip soft under linux. Well actually it’s available since December at least. But only in a beta version (2.0.0.43). I didn’t test it yet but I’m really looking forward to it.

solarcell the future evolution of USBcell?

solarcell

Since solars is becoming cheaper, smaller and more flexible. So Pichaya Puttorngul a designer from San Francisco had the idea to use solar panel to recharge, batteries. Just pull the panel out wait for the sun to do its job, roll it back inside the batterie. Great idea great concept. which make me think of the USBcell, but of course with solarcell you get your energy free from the sun.

Guess What I stumble upon?

August 24, 2007

stumbleupon

Yesss lousy title I know, but stumbleupon.com is not lousy at all!

This coool web “feature” is my re-discovery of the week. I been on this site couple of time not knowing/understanding it’s power! Maybe Because I hate sites that want to install bars in my browser and I was wrong.

Discovering new web site is not that difficult, you could use any digg-like, but offen you’ll find yourself on the same web-site over and over again. Well not with stumbleupon.

First click the big “Join Ussssss…..” on the front page. Answer a couple of question, fill the form. The you’ll be directed to either the Mozilla or Internet explorer website depending on your browser. What about the other browser I do not know. Well Once or before (can’t remember) the bar is installed, you’ll have to chose between topic of intereste (sport, activism, web, family, food, photographie etc… etc…)

Then click the Stumble button on the bar to be sent to a random website submitted by another user. You don’t like it, click thumb down! you do, click thumb up! you don’t care stumble again! And so on. And it’s 3 am and you’re still not to bed, ahahahah evil internet.

Don’t thank me… thank the stumble team…..

Here are a few things I discovered:

  • Musicovery a really cool music discovery web site with a nice flash UI.
  • I knew this one already! But it’s really cool. dontclick.it/ (everything is in the title).
  • Finally a good advise from the rangers.
