Add-on of the Week: Spool

First off, Spool, an innovative new add-on available on Firefox and Chrome, as well as being an app on iOS and Android. Think Instapaper but for EVERYTHING. Any media: video, text, pictures, all collected at the touch of a button and uploaded to the Spool servers, where you can enjoy them offline, on any supported device ‘in a clear format’. Using an innovative new ‘spoolbot’, all data is captured without the ads. Although the bot sadly has to watch all video before it can be uploaded, it’s still very impressive.

Even better; fretting about whether that video you just spooled was in Flash and so can’t be watched on your iPhone? Don’t! Spool automatically converts everything to HTML5 and so can be enjoyed on any device supported. We hope for a Windows Phone version as well as quicker upload times in the future. Best of all, right now it is in free, private beta. Don’t hesitate, join up now. If your interested, that link will give both you and me a shorter time of being accepted as the more people invited, the quicker the invite.

Much obliged

Return of the golden child

I’ve been away for a while. You may or may not have noticed.

I have from my extended sojourn of masturbation I found Digixav to have turned into a trumpet for Microsoft and Anonymous. A veritable hive of scum and villainy; and Henry is Jabba.

I, like many others, detest SOPA, ACTA and PIPA, and am enjoying the build up to Windows (Phone) 8. But with so much more going on in the world and my colleagues blindness to startups, Chinese labourers and so much more, I have decided to wreak literary havoc, with views and reviews that will make you pause and think, then change.

I really enjoyed all the references.

Galaxy S II X 4G announced with rounded edges, Apple lawyers know to sit down

The iPhone 4S wasn’t what we hoped for, internal improvements and Siri aside, still merely on a par with the Samsung Galaxy S II. But no longer; Samsung’s back and wielding your favourite sandwich. The 4G Samsung Galaxy S II X (or the Hercules – no, seriously!) just blasted your shiny new iPhone out of the water. The specs that you care about are below on the picture but I’ll just point out a few things.

I love Nexus

Apologies for not being with the liveblog, I had an… altercation.

Anywho, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. It is beautiful. While maybe not as thin as the Motorola RAZR, it still packs some key features.

Hey. I am Chris.

Hi guys/occasional girl.

I’m the ‘cool’ one here. I mostly just hate on Symbian and RIM’s shares but I harbour a secret love for Bada, despite not actually knowing what it is. While the others work hard, I’ll be bringing you hilarity and of course more ways to see breasts on the internet because I’m a teenager.

Nice meeting you.

Chris

BTW I ❤ Linux.
