Technorati Beta

It’s out folks, the latest and greatest version of Technorati is now available in a public beta. It’s smoothed out its corners and added a whole host of pre-loaded searches of top searches, news, books, movies right up front. If you login to your account on Technorati, you can also view your Watchlist searches right from the home page. In the words of Founder & CEO David Sifry, the goal is to make the site "accessible to more people and, specifically, people who new to blogging." Right on!


GPS Moblogging, another first

Two years ago, my sister was moblogging with full GPS support (click Location Info) in Japan on Tokyo Tidbits. Now, a full two years later, her boyfriend has cobbled together several services and a bluetooth-enabled GPS device which talks to her Nokia 7610 phone to do the same thing.

Ah progress.
