…It’s Website Wednesday: Buzzword?

Buzzword

Buzzword is “the first real word processor for the web”.

Though this description sounds rather boring, the site itself is rather impressive.

Basically an online version of Word, it’s built in Flash, so there’s plenty of fancy features, and the online interface means you can use it on either a Mac or a PC.

Another advantage of online applications: No need to install. Traveling and in need of a word processor? No problem; Just fire up Buzzword and away you go.

Having your documents online also means it’s easy to share with friends, family and co-workers, co-editing and co-writing something through its path to perfection.

Lastly, it’s owned by Adobe, so there’s definitely no lack of support, and the chance that this winds up in the dead pool is slim to none.

It’s definitely worth a try, so click the link and see what’s buzzing.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Splashup?

Splashup

Splashup is “a powerful editing tool and photo manager. With all the features professionals use and novices want, it’s easy to use, works in real-time and allows you to edit many images at once. Splashup runs in all browsers, integrates seamlessly with top photosharing sites, and even has its own file format so you can save your work in progress.”

Splashup Editor

Basically a free, online version of Photoshop, I was instantly impressed by how well Splashup works.

Open the editor, and it feels like a desktop application. Response is quick, it has a proper menu, and it integrates with your computer like it’s supposed to.

One of the best features of Splashup is the ability to import images directly from flickr, Facebook, Picasa, the web, and your computer, With a few simple clicks, you can import a photo, make the necessary edits, and then save/export the photo back into your site of choice.

Splashup Tools And Services

With the ability to edit multiple images at once, pixel-level control, layers of depth, and more, there’s not much that you’ll miss if you’re stuck in an online editing world.

Ready to give it a shot?

Then sign-up, load-up, and start splashing.

…NetNewsWire is perfect?

NetNewsWire

On a daily basis, NetNewsWire is the program that I use to keep this blog running as I sort through a thousand plus stories per day via RSS.

Thankfully, it never disappoints, and NewsGator has done an excellent job of making everything work the way it should.

Shawn Blanc agrees, and has posted a great run through of the features that set NNW apart, so if you’ve got a Mac, and you read blogs by RSS (as you should) then definitely give NetNewsWire a try.

It’s that good.

…Leopard is coming?

Apple Leopard

The date has finally been finalized; On Friday, October 26, 2007, Apple will release Leopard, its latest operating system, to hoards of screaming Apple fanboys.

Ok, so it might not be that dramatic, but considering how long it’s been since their last release, a new OS is kind of a big deal. Plus, as Vista continues to flounder, it’s time once again for Apple to one up the ‘Soft boys.

Looking to get in on the action? Amazon has a pre-order deal going on right now, and you can save $20 if you’re willing to wait a few days for shipping.

Check out Apple’s site for a list of the over 300 new features that Leopard is bringing, and prepare to be upgraded.
