Need that old program back?

9 Jul

I was recently talking with a friend and he reminded me of a great website that often gets overlooked called Old Apps. Let’s say you were a big fan of the defunct program MusicMatch, an audio player that Yahoo discontinued, but you still wanted to get it. At Old Apps, you can download outdated software for free.

Search through thousands of oldies but goodies apps and party like it’s 1999.

Mogulus – Live Streaming TV in Beta

7 Feb

I was watching the morning crew on WKYC today and they encouraged the viewing audience to chat with them online. I logged on to the Channel 3 website, but I was more impressed with the opportunity to watch them live on the web through Mogulus.

Mogulus is watching live broadcast TV online. The website is in “beta”, but I was truly surprised that it’s teeming with a multitude of channels from around the world. After checking out WKYC for a second, I watched the Italian version of Big Brother, a U2 music channel and a Green Day concert. I also stumbled upon a swim meet from Iowa. I was also surprised you could also setup your own Mogulus channel and start webcasting live today.


  • Live, 24/7 On-Demand Video
  • Many Pre-recorded shows too
  • Multiple Channels of Music, Sports, News and More
  • Chat with others watching the show


  • Live in a single player
  • 100,000+ live viewers can watch at once
  • Embed on your website aka WKYC
  • Multiple camera shots

Get lost on all the “Live” broadcasts on Mogulus.

Gmail Users – Try Mail Goggles!

3 Nov

I learned the hard way a few years ago about sending emails in the heat of the moment. Before I send out a big email, I generally save it in my draft box, let it simmer, and send it out later. This method of saving for later led to many drafts in my inbox, but it has made me certainly craft better emails. Now Google has created Mail Goggles to prevent you from sending that message you shouldn’t send.

Inside your Gmail “Setup”, under the “Labs” tab you will see the option to enable this feature. You have the opportunity to define what time of the day you want Google to ask if you if you really want to send this email.


By the way, if you don’t have a Gmail account, you are missing out on one of the best free products on the market. I would highly recommend signing-up for a Gmail account; you will never go back to your old email system.

PBWiki – Online Collaboration Tool

10 Oct

A friend of mine just told me about a great writing collaboration tool called PBWiki. She was using this free online web application to work on a group research paper project and had great success. Google Docs has been pioneering the concept of group document collaboration, so this really isn’t a new idea, but PBWiki has just made it easier.

What can you do with PBWiki?

  • Collaborate as a group on the same document(s)
  • See changes made by others
  • Rollback to prior versions

Try PBWiki

Free Michael Moore Movie

26 Sep

Michael Moore is doing to the movie industry what Radiohead did last year with the music industry. The documentary filmmaker is offering his full length film “Slacker Uprising” as a free download. The trend of developing a buzz about your product with offering it for free seems to be the new trend.

Are you interested in downloading this film? Did you download the Radiohead album last year just because it was free?
