Link Roundup: YouTube Remixer, Mobile Network, Ebay vs Google, id Game Engine, Levi’s Mobile Phone

Wednesday, June 20th, 2007
YouTube Remixer
YouTube has officially launched YouTube Remixer, a new service that allows users to edit their videos from within YouTube itself.
Mobile Network
Researchers are turning cars into nodes that ‘talk’ to each other, forming a new type of wireless network. As cars enter the mobile network, drivers can download multimedia - including movies, images and songs - or get real-time information about traffic.
EBay vs Google
When Google invited eBay sellers attending the eBay Live! party in Boston this week to the Google Checkout Freedom Party — which was designed to poke fun at eBay’s restrictive policies — eBay got a little upset.
id Software’s new game engine
John Carmack showing a demo video of id’s Engine Tech 5. Anyone remember Quake back in the day? This video makes me miss my polygons!
Levi’s Steel Phone
In tune with its young consumers, the Levi’s(R) brand is adding a fashionable, steel mobile phone to its range of lifestyle accessories.

Link Roundup: CB2 Child Robot, Interactive Paper, Bump Top, Photosynth Prototype, Building Facebook Applications

Monday, June 11th, 2007
CB2 Child Robot
The 33 kilogram CB2 is literally beyond words in its freakines. Apparently it emulates “the physical ability of a 1- or 2-year-old toddler, can turn over and stand up with assistance”.
Interactive Paper
Paper Four, a research project in Sweden, is developing an interactive paper. “Boring billboards can be turned into interactive displays by using conductive inks to print touch sensors and speakers onto paper, say Swedish researchers.” - NewScientistTech
Bump Top
a fresh user interface that takes the usual desktop metaphor to a glorious, 3D extreme. This technology has been in development for over a year now. Hopefully someone will finally integrate this into an Operating System.
Photosynth Prototype
The Photosynth Technology Preview is a taste of the newest - and most exciting - way to view photos on a computer. Our software takes a large collection of photos of a place or an object, analyzes them for similarities, and then displays the photos in a reconstructed three-dimensional space, showing you how each one relates to the next.
“10 Things That Would Have Been Nice to Know When Starting My Facebook Application”

Link Roundup: Indie Music Store, Microsoft Surface, Street View, Thinnest Notebook

Friday, June 1st, 2007
World’s largest Indie MP3 store launches
PayPlay has just launched “the world’s largest MP3 download store” — a store selling more than 1.3 million indie music tracks, with a search engine that allows you to search for your fave artists and get similar indie artists in the catalog.
Microsoft Surface - Video of Bill Gates Showing off his Expensive Table
So Microsoft Surface looks neat, but the hardware alone costs around $10,000. So not sure if you’re going to see many of these for a long time. Neat hardware concept though.
Google Maps - Street View (Vegas)
Google Maps now includes a “street view” in 5 US cities. Hopefully, more will come. The link above is of Vegas. Here are also the best things found so far with the Street View
Intel Unveils Worlds Thinnest Notebook
Codenamed the Intel Mobile Metro Notebook. Being a tiny 0.7-inch thickness, it is crowned the thinnest laptop ever. Weighing in at just 2.25 pounds and sporting Intel speediest processor, it is not just a thin, its also fast!
