  • clevercactus pro Beta Redux

    Diego Doval:

    <victory-dance>With this post on the cactuslog, clevercactus pro is officially re-released. And within the timeframe I mentioned last week, no less!</victory-dance>

    Congrats Diego!  He popped on #mobitopia last night and it was great to see him again.  He used to be a #mobi fixture, but he’s been so busy lately that we’ve not seen him much.  He did pull a bit of a timewarp on me last night while I was catching up on the cactuslog: it’s been almost two years since spaces was born.  It’s hard to believe that so much time has flown by since Diego started seeding the first pre-release pre-alpha versions.

  • Picasa from Google

    Google is wasting no time on their purchase:

    Free! Organize your digital photos. Download Picasa from Google.

    The main Picasa page complies with google’s non-evil policies:

    The download itself contains only the Picasa software. Picasa will not uninstall other programs or add any non-Picasa programs or files to your computer.

    I would be interested to see a diff between the pre-google and post-google version of their terms and conditions page and their privacy policy.  Conspiracy theorists would look for something sneaky, though I’m more curious than anything else.

    I like the interface at a first glance.  I’s a little overdone in that sort of retro sci-fi UI way, but it could be much worse.  I’m much more impressed after playing with it for a few minutes.  The timeline view is nice, the fades in slideshow mode are clean but nice.  The little things are just right too

    It will be interesting to see how this product matures under the guidance of google.
