Online couple cheated WITH EACH OTHER !!!

www.metro.co.uk is carrying a story about a married couple who ended up dating each other through an online chat room.  “Sweetie” and “Prince of Joy” spent hours telling each other about their marriage troubles.  Apparently the truth emerged when the two turned up for a date and are now getting divorced after each accusing the other of being unfaithful.

“I was suddenly in love. It was amazing. We seemed to be stuck in the same kind of miserable marriage. How right that turned out to be,” Sana, 27, said.
Adnan, 32, said: “I still find it hard to believe that Sweetie, who wrote such wonderful things, is actually the same woman I married and who has not said a nice word to me for years”.

Visual search tool

oSkope is a neat little visual search tool which will allow you to search and organise items from various sources, such as ebay, flickr, youtube etc.  The results are presented in an intuative way and you can arrange them in a number of ways such as a graph, a stack, a pile or as a list.  I like the stack as it feels like you are browsing through photographs of things.  Very nice and worthwhile service.

QUECHUP social networking

Well, I stumbled apon another social networking site called Quechup which came to me as an invite.  I was talking to the friend that sent it to me and they were telling me that he never actually sent out any “invites” … it turns out that as part of their registration process Quechup will helpfully offer to search your mailbox to find any contacts who are currently on Quechup and add them for you.  However, it also then sends out an invite to all your contacts in such a way that it looks like you personally sent the mail.  Two things strike me about this, firstly that’s just spamming by another means and pretty sneaky.  Secondly, who the HE*L gives out their mailbox password to a random WEB site as part of registration …. have people learned nothing about WEB security !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have not read the Quechup T&C or privacy agreement nor have I tried this myself, but I can’t think of anything which would make me feel safe about giving my mail password over to anyone.

WEB strategy – Twitter under the microscope

This is an interesting article on Twitter, [a WEB service which lets you post items of micro data about yourself to let your friends know what you are doing, as well as keep a track on what your friends are up to].  I have been tweeting on twitter for a while now (does that make me an early adopter????? probably not !!) and I still found this article very interesting.  Although it is aimed at the Web Strategist there are some good summaries and concepts about why & how twitter should be used and where it could all be going.
