CrazyEgg Errors

I decided to put my blog to the test using CrazyEgg's heatmap visualization after all the rave reviews it got from the likes of Matt Mullenweg, David Hansson and TechCrunch. Unfortunately, since I inserted the required Javascript code, I'm getting errors from both Firefox and IE. Screenshot after the jump.

What’s in a Name?

Forget the Capulets and Montagues, the Hatfields and the McCoys. It's all about Diddy versus Diddy. Sean "Diddy" Combs was sued by another Diddy in the UK for "causing confusion" and unfair competition. Music producer Richard "Diddy" Dearlove wants Combs to stop using the "Diddy" moniker as it allegedly caused some ...

Wablet and Filipinos Crunched

Wablet’s going to rock web IM, according to Marshall Kirkpatrick, after he road-tests Wablet. His review was nothing short of an endorsement which makes me feel good because it is for the most part a product of Filipino innovation. Yet if you course through the article you'll see how some ...

Wablet Looks Cool!

Is Mike Abundo Wablet's official spin doctor? If so, he's doing a great job at it. Techcrunch's Marshall Kirkpatrick should be demo-ing it anytime now. Jeez, I hope I can get a chance to test it. Here's a screenshot of the client login window:

Meebo, Wablet, Friendster MoBS

So I was just talking about the mysterious Filipino Web 2.0 undertaking Wablet and how it will give Meebo a run for its money (well, not really). Now comes Friendster MoBS, another web-based instant messaging platform that bears a frightening resemblance to Meebo's GUI. Except that in MoBS, your only ...

Wablet, Anyone?

Techcrunch recently profiled Wablet, a Filipino Web 2.0 startup offering IM services similar to that of Meebo. Mike Abundo of the Mike Abundo Effect, claims that Wablet "will blow away Meebo". What's strange though is how its developers are wrapping this project in utter obscurity. Not even ...

Yahoo Mail Beta Review

I fell too much in love with my customized Alleba email courtesy of Gmail for domains that I completely neglected to do my piece on Yahoo!'s new beta mail interface. What better time to do it when I've slightly gotten over the whole Gmail affair. I have been using Yahoo! ...

eBible.com – Heaven’s Answer to Web 2.0

How I wish eBible.com existed in my days of studying theology in college. I have to admit that theology (or theo, as we fondly called it) isn't exactly my thing nor did I excel in it like I did in Calculus and English. We used the New ...

So no, Feedburner didn't buy Nooked. It bought blog analytics site Blogbeat instead. My Feedburner stats could use a little umph, maybe Blogbeat is just the thing the 'burner needs. Via: Feedburner Blog
