I transfered all my feeds from Bloglines yesterday and, after an initial feeling that the app was bloated, I must say I quite like it. The tagging is well-implemented, and for some reason I feel I can scan my new stories much faster here than in Bloglines. The only glaring ommission is a notifier!
I’ve also signed up for 30 Boxes, and have been playing with the really cool natural language event input system. Once you get used to the forced AM / PM syntax, it’s quite nice. The only thing I’m missing here is a way to import an iCal export (.ics).
Qi heeft de Emerce sitegeverherontworpen. Ziet er best gelikt uit, hoewel wat voor de hand liggend. Onder de motorkap is het alleen één grote bende. Tables galore. Geen gebruik van webstandaarden of bewustzijn van toegankelijkheid te bekennen. Gemiste kans, Emerce!
The first digital music download service that gets it right, in my opinion, is Warp Records Bleep.
I discovered it through Chris Heatcote’s blog (thanks Chris) and decided to give it a go. Signing up is painless, browsing through the music works reasonably well (although they could take a few hints from services like Odeo when it comes to interface design) and buying an album is easy, you can even use PayPal, so no looking around for your credit card. Best of all is the fact that the files are plain mp3s without DRM. Lovely. Give them a try!
Finally, Odeo’s opened it’s doors to the world. Signing up went really quick, and I was surprised to see that they have some nice integration with the latest edition of iTunes going on. I’ll maybe post a more detailed review at open.info.nl (Dutch) later this weekend.
