Adobe Cards is an Adobe promotion for Creative Suite 4 (CS4), created by Goodby, Silverstein, and Partners. Simple interaction engages a series of animation builds using only playing cards as the visual element. Production time was three months, definitely worth viewing.
There are several online photo editors available, however, FotoFlexer appears to be the most full-featured to date. Try it before logging in, I think you will find it is easy-to-use with many of the expected features you might expect; but I was pleasantly surprised by the "Geek" tab for advanced options in addition to allow saving multiple layers. For the novice users it has an "Add a face" option which I'm sure we can use to brighten someone's day, happy photo editing.
Musicovery allows you to select and play music by mood, decade, and genre. If you register, it will also save favorites Musicovery calls it your "universe" (music sections). It also has icons to direct to to purchase the song on itune, amazon, or ebay. Very cool UI (User Interface) and a fun way to discover different music. Happy Listening!
It's our Tree appears (www.itsourtree.com) to be gaining popularity over Geni (www.geni.com). Both applications appear to allow multiple users to update their family tree in a friendly UI (User interface). Currently, I am exploring Its our Tree with my enthusiastic cousins, and although I would like to see additional features, so far it's been smooth and fun to use. If you have an interest, this may be an alternative to sharing the responsibility (and the work) of updating your tree for the next generation. BTW: Only people in your family tree can view your tree.
Yes, I'm going to start cheating and taking the easy way out. I want to explore to see how much I can push the capabilities of Weebly, OR just be lazy by taking the the quick update path, the UI (User Interface) appears SO easy to use, I'm recommending it to many of my friends and non-techie colleagues who wish to create their own sites. No experience is needed. It's free, has no advertising, and it should only take a couple of minutes. During the set-up the site may ask you to register your domain name for about 24./year (a reasonable price). You don't have to register a domain if you choose not to, just click continue, you can always register it later. I would recommend getting your own domain name, it would appear to be more professional and easier to remember. http://www.weebly.com/
