Memeo Send: Like a digital UPS for businesses

Memeo Send (for Windows | Mac) is a brand-new application aimed at business professionals in small-to-medium size companies who frequently need to transfer large files to colleagues--including photos, videos, PowerPoint presentations, and hefty design files from InDesign and Adobe Illustrator.

Browse through a wall of images and videos

Browse through a wall of images and videos

The Cooliris Firefox plug-in (Mac or Windows) is one of the most popular extensions in our library. Fire it up once, and you'll see why: Cooliris turns your image or movie searches into a 3D wall that is easy to navigate and just plain cool looking. When they came out with an app for iPhone some time ago, it didn't have enough of the cool features to make it worthwhile. But they've just released version 1.5 for iPhone... Read More »

Search for words and provide planetary defense: iPhone apps of the week

The latest Apple rumor is that the iPhone 3G will soon be replaced by a low-priced 8GB iPhone 3GS. Apparently, Rogers Wireless in Canada sent out a memo that implies the $99 iPhone 3G pricing announced at WWDC earlier this summer was to get rid of inventory to make way for the faster 3GS. Though nobody knows what the price might be on the new iPhone (or even if this rumor is true), it would be exciting to see a... Read More »
