- Fon – FON allows you to download a piece of software that is loaded into the wireless router, which inturn allows for wireless Internet access sharing.
- 30Boxes – Yet another interesting web 2.0 ish Calendar application (still in beta, I’ll post more abt it as soon as i get a chance to test it), that would allow you to create, share and do many more things with a calendar. Wonder what googles upto *Sigh*

Microsoft released their version of local mapping application, that ties into the business listings and other spatial information. This is part of there web services platform Windows Live, launched recently. I have to say that they’ve done some darn impressive work with this one, this is based on the Microsoft Virtual earth platform. Chandu, Steve and Scoble…good on ya!..I was pretty amazed to see some high quality aerial images (supplied by Pictometry). Since the images are collected by airborne digital imaging system, they are pretty crisp and clear. They also have directions and also a variety of completed functions that never showed up in the initial Virtual Earth version launched a while ago. This is pretty slick and works really really smooth (as expected ermm…this is something new with microsoft 😉 ). Microsoft definitely comes close to google on this one! I’ll update this shortly..
Update: Scoble talks about it here…he’s also got a video…I could actually spot my car in one of the images! …way too cool….chk below
Songbird is a desktop media player from the same guys that developed Winamp and Yahoo! music engine. Songbird is built atop the Mozilla platform for cross-platform extensibility. The interface looks similar to Itunes, but it surely seems to boast many things that Itunes and other media players doesn’t have. The songbird team gave a good explanation here on some of the facts. Although I haven’t had a chance to test it, Michael at TechCrunch reviews it further…Its time we have a new media player…watch out Apple!
