Interesting Web Updates in October 2009
October held a lot of great web updates. These are the ones we found most interesting. If you have more, add them in the Comments.
- Music search – try this one for Frank Sinatra
- Twitter posts in search results – check out the explanation and videos
- New GPS in their Android phones that rivals bigger GPS-device makers’ systems (video)
- SideWiki – allowing others to comment on your web site and you to comment on other sites (video)
The iPhone launched in China.
Not necessarily “web” — Windows 7 launched. And it was demo’ed on an Apple on the Today show.
Facebook changed their social news feed (the status feed). If you have not noticed it, they switched the updates to the 250 people they think you want to hear from. If you’d like to switch it to all your friends, read this article about how to switch it.
The beta of Gist launched. It allows you to track all kinds of people, companies, and other news in a very friendly layout. Spokeo is a similar service (free to test) and it’ll show you how many “things” you’ve shared online including your Amazon wish list, streaming music, images, and more.
Let’s hope November gives us just as much!
