Resurrection of AIR App Nomee

Posted by | August 28, 2009 .

Nomee is an AIR app that attempts to be a one-stop-shop for all social networking. Similar to Skimmer, I initially thought. Back in April when it had entered public beta, I was unimpressed. The concept of Nomee cards was quite confusing and the need to explicitly share cards with friends soured the experience. Three months […]

Posted by | June 23, 2009 .

A week ago Microsoft made a press release about Photobucket’s Visual Search, a new way to search, which is powered by Silverlight and Live.
