Web searches help a ton in our quest to find information about things we looking for or want to know. Searches play a critical role in decision making and more so when it comes to personal use. Whenever possible, we are more inclined to take our friends’ advice than trusting a random person suggesting something in a blog.

But what if the link you are looking at has already been liked by your friend who found it to be helpful? Taking help from Facebook, Bing has introduced couple of social features to its search results to help you make the right choice. Follow me after the fold to find out more about the social features of Bing.

When working as an editor or writer online, it’s easy to stay behind the scenes and remain something of an elusive shadow. AppStorm is no exception – we have a great team of editors and writers who work really hard to bring you a regular stream of top-notch articles across the sites.

Today, I thought it would be fun to publish an interview with your very own editor – Jarel Remick. He joined the AppStorm team at the end of 2009, and is the driving force behind everything that goes on at Web.AppStorm.

I hope you enjoy getting to know your editor a little better, and feel free to leave a few questions for him in the comments!

I’m not sure if it’s a growing trend or not but I’m more frequently hearing about people keeping digital journals (or diaries) and how therapeutic it is. I’m a pretty big fan of Penzu (our review: A Private Web: Digital Journal with Penzu), especially with the new mobile apps (our review: Penzu Goes HTML5 Mobile). I’ve never really been one to keep a journal though, so I’ve never actually tried to keep one whether paper or digital.

From the number of people I’m hearing via Twitter saying it’s relaxing and therapeutic, I may just give it a shot. One reason a paper journal never appealed to me is the security risk. Okay, well, siblings reading your journal isn’t exactly a “security risk” but it’s all perspective right? Thanks to today’s web apps, however, we can all rest well knowing our digitally recorded thoughts via apps like Penzu and OhLife are quite safe from prying eyes.

Do you keep a private journal/diary? If so, what app(s) do you use and how does it benefit you? If you don’t, why not? I’d love to hear your thoughts on digital journaling so leave a comment below. Thanks!

Social networks have changed our digital lifestyle. A major chunk of our activities online, like consuming news, multimedia, shopping, recommendations etc., have undergone a paradigm shift thanks to the social web. Links and likes from Facebook and Twitter influence our day to day decisions.

While there are plenty of splendid, free plugins and dedicated apps available for staying on top of the social graph it’s hard to beat the convenience and multi-tasking capability of a web browser. For those of us who think social media plugins are a bloat on system resources, an all new social browser has been unleashed into the interwebs.

Getting your project funded is tough in any cycle of the economy. You’ll have to shake a lot of hands, show up at a lot of meetings and attend a lot of conferences & meetups to expand your network. This is for those technical types who might be having the next Google or Facebook as their project.

What avenues are available for creative types like a painter who is looking to raise money for that great modern art exhibition or the photographer who would like to capture the breeding pattern of the migratory bird on film? Except for Kickstarter, there’s virtually nothing. Let’s take a look at this revolutionary web app that helps creative types and people who adore creativity to come together.

There are way too many ecommerce solutions – open source and free. And there are those self-hosted solutions competing with some popular remotely hosted cloud based solutions. While there are too many of them of them to pick from, once set up anyone can make a decent living selling digital and physical goods.
