Highrise, 37signals’ eagerly anticipated CRM-tool, has been released today. looks like another great app – especially – for virtual companies. just take the tour to see a why 37signals is where they’re today – doesn’t this just make you wanna sign-up?
an alpha-version of Adobe Apollo (you know, the framework enabling flash-apps for the offline-world) has been released on sunday. Arrington – who’s been praising Apollo since day 0 – is calling developers to
arms start coding. he’s either right in that Apollo is a game-changer, or he’s got a nice promotion-gig seriously, I think Apollo might indeed bring a new generation of hybrid apps (though I’ld obviously prefer open approaches, but honestly, it looks like Adobe’s got a pretty decent headstart).
Twitter-hype & associated gets maddening. Dashboard-widgets, local apps for mac and windows, flash-widgets. guess that’s what you get when offering a dead-easy API …the downside: their servers tend to be ridiculously slow, or they go down (for maintenance) at all. meanwhile, Twitterholic unveils A-list twitters – there are currently only 5 people/accounts attracting more than 1.000 follower. I subscribed to #5, Darthvader.
ps: if only my Google Reader had a ‘search’-box (the greasemonkey-scripts available somehow didn’t work for me)
