Like.com image search engine lauched by Riya

A new kind of image search is being launched today by Riya, which will allow users to search for images using both text and images as queries.

Other image searches rely on text queries, which depend on the data attached to the image file. This is not necessarily a reliable way to search, which is where Like.com comes in.

And boy, the technology is stunning...

Will Yahoo mash-ups save us from Hotmail?

Yahoo’s decision to open up its email API is great news for web mail users and is a great example of what Web 2.0 is about. How long will it be before a major retailer like Tesco follows suit?

So it is possible for a site to be beautiful but accessible?


MSN exhibits great use of Ajax, good for the web

Over at Ajaxian yesterday, Michael Mahemoff gives a heads up on the latest Web 2.0 move by MSN, which sees them offer pretty much as yet unheard of Ajax driven user features for their image search.

Following up from the d.Construct post yesterday, I wanted to talk about the apparent obsession with social software at the moment, and to ask for comments on why you think it’s so. Seriously, there are so many other things that can be done!

TechCrunch launches UK site

I’ve just returned from holiday where I did my best to stay completely away from any technology other than my camera (for good reason), and am getting back into the swing of things nicely.

Kiko buyer revealed to be Tucows

The mysterious buyer of online calendar Kiko has stepped out of the shadows, revealing himself to be Elliot Noss, the CEO of Tucows.

Tucows, a software and applications aggregator, paid about a quarter of a million dollars to pick up Kiko, which was offloaded via eBay after the founders became distracted and started working on new projects (ok, Google Calendar had something to do with this too).

So why did they buy it?


What should be measured - web pages viewed or events within a page?

A RedEye seminar with Jim Sterne last week brought out lots of new discussion in the world of Web Analytics.
