Irrespective of the domain you work, there’s so much information available on the internet that might benefit you — a lot. After a certain point, you might find the bookmarks you’ve created to be rather stale and useless. If you’re like me, there’s a very good chance you might forget why you’ve even bookmarked a page after a few days.

Making comments, taking notes and annotating content has never been easier. There are quiet a few apps doing a stellar job in archiving all your snippets of information in the cloud for anywhere access. One among them is Shelfster.

There’s a wealth of video editing applications available but the majority (and the best) are confined to native desktop apps and generally come with a high price tag. Even when wanting to create the simplest of movies or slideshows, these apps also hog system resources, which isn’t friendly to other processes you want to run.

Stupeflix is a browser-based, simple video editing utility. It’s strapline is “video production made easy”, which it is… to an extent. Stupeflix has two main utilities: Stupeflix Studio (the aforementioned video production utility) and Stupeflix TV (which allows one to create a web TV channel showing Twitter updates and Flickr images). The latter, for me, sounds the most impressive but since Stupeflix Studio has a larger feature set that will be the focus of this review.

For years I’ve followed the traditional method of creating to-do lists; adding an item, setting a due date/time and striking it off once the task is done. Rinse & repeat. Sure, the sheer satisfaction of striking off even the smallest item on the list drove me to stop procrastinating and get things done. The one thing I’ve often struggled with though, is in making sense of my entire task list as a whole. No matter how much I try to categorize it with folders and tags, they feel like detached units that I need to spend a lot of energy making collective sense of.

Online tools like Remember the Milk, Google Tasks and TeuxDeux, try to make things easier with e-mail integration, smart search and folders, or dead simple, lightning fast interfaces. But the inherent problem of a scattered, fragmented list of tasks that do not have an inherent hierarchy remains. Meta information like due dates and priorities are assigned to individual tasks, but what happens when a bunch of them have related properties?


Being the week before the Holidays hasn’t slowed things on the internet. Crowd favorite, Dropbox made it to 1.0, Blekko added one more feature to its arsenal of three, Disqus launched user centric dashboard, Facebook launched Instant Personalization with TripAdvisor & blocked all URLs, LinkedIn now has groups, Mint is going to teach financial management to kids, Yahoo to shut down its video service and Mark Zuckerberg found himself on the cover of TIME Magazine.
