Sending Large Files with quanp

Doc's always sending large files to folks, and until now I've been using a special file-sending service for that purpose. But now, quanp has a drag-and-drop feature that allows quick sending of multiple large files (up to 500MB). The quanp send widget allows you to send files at any time right from your desktop, and recipients don't need to have a quanp account.

CES 2009: Hands-on with Netgear's new streaming media devices

Is Sprint watching you?

I'm not quite sure how this fits into the company's overall marketing scheme, but Sprint's got a Big Brother-esque Flash "widget" on its site that tracks, among other things, the latest headlines on Newsvine, what terms the Internet is buzzing about, how much energy the world is using, how many eggs are being produced, how many babies are being born, and how many people are stuck in elevators...in what appears to be real time.

S60 Summit: Widgets extend the functionality of S60

Nokia made an announcement last week that will allow S60 mobile device users to enhance their mobile web experiences. Widgets will be coming to Feature Pack 2 devices in the third quarter of 2007 and I did not have time last week to try to understand this functionality since I was traveling for business and wrapped up with a maritime salvage project. While here at the S60 Summit I was able to meet with a Nokia representative and actually view and try a demo of \widgets running on a S60 N95 device. Widgets appear as applications that you can file in the S60 folder structure and then simply launch by selecting the Widget. These are small and more easily developed applications that integrate with the amazing S60 Web Browser. There are reports of developers being able to create a widget in the span of a couple of days and then roll it out for usage by an end consumer and we will be seeing more of this development capability during the event.
