Let me introduce you to imeem. Its tagline is “The Best of Social Media”. And let me tell you what I think is the importancy of this service. It’s better than Friendster. It’s better than MySpace. It’s better than Facebook. Look, this is absolutely amazing. So it is the Best of Social Media.
Video. Music. Playlists. Photos. Blogs. Tags. Meems. People. That’s their navigation bar.
I don’t know how they managed to finish the PHP or whatever, but this is most excellent. It blends the feature-richness of MySpace with the reliability and simplicity of Facebook. This is social networking perfection. This is true Social Networking web2.0.
It also has a nice client software for itself, as a software download. I have not tried it yet, but it is for Windows and Mac.
And of course, imeem also has privacy options. Excellent.
So check it out for yourself. Get an account and start mingling. It’s pretty amazing. Add me on the way
Microsoft has released their official, new version of Internet Explorer, Internet Explorer 7. (download it.) New Look! Tabs! Printing!(?) RSS! Search! Security (*cough*in under 24 hours a security patch was released*cough*)
It actually looks pretty… awesome. In the words of Adam Pash from Lifehacker:
To get a better idea of the kind of milestone the IE7 release is, keep in mind that IE6 was released way back in August of 2001. So the question is, has Microsoft spent all this time polishing a turd, or do they have something good to offer. (citeback)
There are bound to be problems with rendering pages and such, though it does (finally!) have PNG Alpha Channel support, and *better* CSS support.
In conclusion, it looks pretty good, the features presented are pretty nice, though I have not personally tried it myself. If you have a Windows machine, you might want to grab a copy if you wish.
