The new buzz on FriendFeed is a site called Rejaw. Maybe it’s me but just the title of the site seems to be a bit odd to say. Sounds like a word you say after a headshot. Like “j00 g0tz r3j4w’D” or some shit like that. I’m not very keen with the big and uncrisp font. So far, I was able to fix that with AdBlock. In short, it’s basically a Twitter clone. Think of Twitter and FrendFeed if they were to combine. Actually, Rejaw is more like a FriendFeed clone since you can embed and talk in conversations.
So, just what the fuck is the big hoopla? Hell, I still don’t know. People say that Leo Laporte has lead the way to making Rejaw the new Twitter. You mean like how Identi.ca was going to be the new Twitter? Or Plurk? Even FriendFeed was called the new Twitter when Twitter started fucking up shit. People, before you claim some new site a new anything just remember that there will be another site that will be better than the last one.
The only thing I’m doing with mines is posting swear words.
I’m still new on FriendFeed. Unlike the Titanic, I’m not jumping ship. Plus I can’t swim.
So, what’s my verdict? It’s ok. Nothing about it is grand enough to make me leave my Twitter and it sure as hell not any better than Twitter. So, go and join it if you want. That’s why God made “close account”.

I just got finished tinkering with a free program called Clipdiary I saw in Smart Computing (July 2008, Vol. 19, Iss.7, Pg. 26). It’s basically an “extension”, if you call it that, to the Windows clipboard. What’s so special about it? Well, it remembers everything you “RC & S” (Right-Click & Save) into a little .sql file on your PC. Once you install it, you can press Ctrl+D to open and close it. I find it handy if you’re doing things like uploading videos and/or images on multiple sites.
Here’s a bad video of me messing with it.

I assume everyone knows about Flickr and how it works so, I’ll skip to the meaty chunk, ok?
So, I signed up for another online photo community site called Zooomr (yes, three O’s). Now, i never heard of this site until i noticed Thomas Hawk had uploaded some photos. As usual, I joined it just to see what’s doing.
If you’re used to Flickr, then you’ll quickly adapt to Zooomr.
It’s the same method: upload photos and share them. The do have PRO accounts but compared to Flickr, I like it. Why?
Check-out some of these great Pro-Only features:
* Zipline Complete: Is page 1 just not enough? Zipline Complete gives you the ability to view all of your friend’s Zipline messages.
* Social Stream: Find tons of up-to-date social information from your Photos and Social Circle, all at-a-glance!
* Discover Pro: Want better exposure for your photos, Discover Pro shows the world photos from our Pro Users
* Better Support: While we help everyone as best we can, being a Pro will escalate your issues to the top of our lists.
* Ad-Free Layout: View Zooomr without the advertisements!
Most of the stuff listed here I don’t really mind but, you’re telling me I don’t have to pay for “Unlimited Photo Storage” and “Unlimited Sets/Collections”?
Already, I may switch to Zooomr for my photos.
OH! and Zoomer actually detects my Sony Handycam whereas Flickr only detects my Cybershot.
Sorry Flickr but… Zooomer is my new favorite.

I’m going to make this kind of short.
I’m a Flickr user. I was told in the chatroom at live.pirillo.com by someone (i forgot the name since it happened yesterday) that SmugMug is actually better than Flickr.
Let me say that I’m sure SmugMug is mighty fine from what I saw but, I will admit I didn’t like that you can’t get a free account. Oh, they offer you one… for a trial for 14 days and then (this is the hook) YOU HAVE TO PAY!
Flickr does have a “pro” account that you pay but at least they give you a free account.
My judgement: Flickr wins this battle. That is, unless you want to say otherwise.
