SwiftKey X Beta for Android is no longer Beta

We are huge fans of SwiftKey X beta for Android so it's great news to hear from the CMO of TouchType, Joe Braidwood announcing the official release. "Hello! Today is one year since we first launched a SwiftKey beta on the Android Market. Wow, what a year it's been! To mark the occasion, we're launching two new apps out of beta -- SwiftKey X, for Android phones, and SwiftKey Tablet X, for Android tablets. Making these apps wouldn't have been possible without all the incredible feedback we've received from you all. Thank you. To celebrate SwiftKey's 'first birthday', we're giving SwiftKey X for phones away as a free upgrade to folks who bought SwiftKey on the Android Market in the last year. We're also making SwiftKey X and SwiftKey Tablet X available for just $1.99 to new customers -- over half off each app -- until Saturday at 6am PDT. Please share these fantastic new apps with everyone using the link  and help us mak

You can think of TechShop like a fitness club, but with tools and equipment instead of exercise equipment. It is sort of like a Kinko's for makers, or a Xerox PARC for the rest of us. TechShop is designed for everyone, regardless of their skill level. TechShop is perfect for inventors, makers, hackers, tinkerers, artists, roboteers, families, entrepreneurs, youth groups, FIRST robotic teams, arts and crafts enthusiasts, and anyone else who wants to be able to make things that they dream up but don't have the tools, space or skills. TechShop provides you with access to a wide variety of machinery and tools including milling machines and

Return of the Friendster!

"A Personal Message from Friendster's CEO - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Dear fellow Friendster members, As many of you may know, Friendster announced that it is re-launching itself as a social gaming portal and launched a beta version of the new Friendster a couple of weeks ago. The beta version was well received. I am pleased to announce that the new Friendster is going live thereby enabling all our users to login to the new Friendster using your existing Friendster username and password. Friendster has touched the lives of many. Since MOL, the company I founded acquired Friendster in early last year; many people have come up to me to tell me how Friendster has changed their lives. Many have told me that they have found their life partners over Friendster. Just last week, a successful Internet entrepreneur in Singapore told me that her success was triggered by promoting her business on Friendster. Friendster pioneered social networking
