Latest Tidbits: Tioti, Digg, Google Apps

In the last week I came across some impressive tools and applications. Here is a the short list and descriptions of what i learned so far.

Tape It Off The Internet

A service being created that brings together BitTorrent, TV, and some social networking tools to watch, organize, and discuss your favorite TV shows. So far it is just a promise, so we will see how it progresses.


I’m a little behind on this one, but it has been incredibly valuable in keeping up to date on news and technology. Digg is a social bookmarking tool like Del.icio.us, but it looks and feels much better. You can also use it to promote your own blog posts.

Ping Identity

I recently wrote about Identity 2.0 and centralized identity management. This company is also taking a shot at the solution along with Sxip. Both of these companies will play a very important role in the near future, especially in our latest web applications.

Google Analytics

Google has really gone the extra mile on this one. They have converted the popular Urchin Reports (purchased by Google) into an analytics application at NO COST. Yes, it’s completely free to anyone with extra benefits to Adwords customers.

Google Reader

Yes, I know… Google again. Google Reader is an RSS reader with some very nice Javascript interface techniques. The reading and subscription navigation is also very smooth. Even though the reader is nice I would probably not use it. For me it is too much of an inconvenience to use web-based email and RSS clients. In any case, it is worth looking into.
