Three Tech Treats Today: Tunewiki, Prezi, G-Speak


found these three tech treats today thought share it with you IT PINOYs!

tunewiki is a social media player where you can stream and play music (with lyrics downloaded), videos and radio. the kewl thing about this is you get to also see what the rest of the world is listening to... chances are you meet folks listening to your type of music! you can also download it's mobile version on your iphone for free. thought it's better than iphone's own ipod :)

for the IT PINOY yuppies, one of the challenges they face is wowing their bosses with great presentations... fret no more as you can now play with prezi! prezi is an online presentation tool where you get to work on one big canvas to add your text, images and shapes - hence gone are the days where you create slides. all you need to do is scatter your elements on the canvas and build a path to "fly" through your presentation.


if you've seen minority report, then you'd be glad to know that the technology used there where tom cruise was making hand gestures in front of a transparent screen, is actually based on actual research. John Underkoffler, a science consultant for minority report, has worked for the last decade with oblong industries, developing the g-speak Spatial Operating Environment targetted to be in the market five years from now :)

the facebook breakup letter

dear facebook,

today marks our 10th year together, i must say it has been a sweet journey. unfortunately, time has come for me to walk away.

i had high hopes for us when we started, especially at the time when my heart still beat for… what was her name again? ahh friendster (may she rest in peace). but you were all smile and poised, a neatly uniformed college girl full of hopes and overflowing with excitement. you had me at one poke!

through you i bravely opened up my thoughts to the world. i was able to connect with old and new friends. you bridged time, the longitudes and the latitudes. i got found and new relatives were discovered. once a year you even make me famous sending out birthday reminders. with you, i was a kid in a playground, swiping up or down till the wee hours, unconditionally tagging anyone and gleefully enjoying your games.

know that i am glad to have witnessed you grow - your fun emojis, crazy virals, and live videos i will sorely miss. oh i always thought it’s cool…

I've been working to understand exactly what happened and how to make sure this doesn't happen again. The good news is that the most important actions to prevent this from happening again today we have already taken years ago. But we also made mistakes, there's more to do, and we need to step up and do it," mark posted.
