Yoono will consolidate your social networks into a single interface, which will allow “users to create a custom look and the built-in features that allow the users to pretty much take care of any social task from within Yoono.”

Recommended by Sam Diaz at ZDNET: “available as both a desktop app (PC and Mac) and Firefox add-on, offers both a single-column and multiple-column view. The single column view allows users to toggle between the different networks while the multiple-column view allows users to create custom columns – maybe one for Facebook updates, one for Twitter direct-messages, another for Twitter updates and a fourth for MySpace notifications. And because you can resize the columns, the possibility of having several columns open for real-time viewing is greater.”

“For now, Yoono is only compatible with Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn, Flickr, FriendFeed. It also handles IMs via Yahoo, AIM, Live Messenger and Google Talk.  The company says integration with Google Buzz, YouTube, Yammer and Facebook Chat is in the works.”

Posted on December 11, 2007. Filed under: Files, Online storage | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

[updated 2009.1.9]

It costs to store, but some online storage sites will allow you to keep some files there for free. They hope that you’ll eventually decide to pay for more space. These are only a few of the many places available which have been recommended.

PCWorld has an article on free and low-cost online storage sites.

  • MediaMax free 25GB (that’s GIGAbytes), plus a downloadable utility for automatic PC backups and synchronization. Download/share up to 1GB a month, files up to 10MB large. Greater capacities for paid accounts. Recommended Smart Computing.
  • znail Free 5MB of storage with registration; more space for small donation. Accessible from any Internet computer. You can also store your web bookmarks here to access them from anywhere online. Recommended by PC Annoyances
  • DataDepositBox Buy any amount of storage for 1 cent per megabyte. Recommended by Smart Computing.
  • offers 5GB (that’s GIGAbytes) of free storage, maximum file size 25MB, password protected if you like.
  • Windows Live Skydrive has 5GB free storage.
  • Xdrive has shut down as of 1/12/09. Do not use.

Remember: it may not be wise to store confidential information using online storage, whether you pay or not. Check the site’s policy. Also, such sites are subject to court orders or subpoenas for your stored information.
