Youtorrent

The very new torrent tracker is Youtorrent. I try to test it and is very very fast. No eye candy, no Ajax, just simple searches and results. Youtorrent is a torrent search engine that tries to be what Youtube is for videos and Youporn is for sex videos – the key player of the torrent search engines.

Happy Birthday Yahoo Mail!

Happy

Yahoo Mail turns 10 yesterday. With just 3 megabytes of storage back then, it’s hard to imagine what we started out with. There was no mobile integration then, limited ways in which to attach files like images, and fewer adopters of web-based services that weren’t directly tied to their ISPs. Yahoo’s put together a cute list of email milestones to help us remember how far we’ve come since 1997. Here it is:

* October 1997: Yahoo! Mail launches following our acquisition of Four 11, creators of RocketMail.
* December 1998: The movie You’ve Got Mail debuts.
* March 1999: CNN’s Ten Commandments of Email cites that Americans sent 2.1 billion emails daily (vs. 196 billion per day this year).
* December 1999: Yahoo! Mail launches Spamguard to detect spam and banish it to a separate folder.
* January 2000: Web mail survives Y2K.
* November 2001: Pope John Paul II is the first pontiff to send an email apology.
* March 2002: It’s reported internationally that email outpaces snail mail as the preferred method for residential communication.
* December 2003: Congress passes the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 to regulate the sending of commercial email.
* July 2004: Yahoo! acquires Oddpost, bringing AJAX to Yahoo! and inspiring Yahoo! Mail’s most significant upgrade ever.
* June 2005: Broadway’s “Spamalot” wins Tony Award for Best Musical.
* March 2006: IDG study shows that Americans sent 11.8 billion photos via email in 2005, compared with 2.6 billion in 2000. By 2009, this number is projected to 25.7 billion images.
* March 2007: Yahoo! Mail announces free, unlimited e-mail storage for all users.
* August 2007: According to Comscore , the worldwide Web mail market counts approximately 543 million people, with Yahoo! Mail alone representing 255 million.

Safari comes to Windows

Jobs: one more thing… a browser war
Steve Jobs has re-kindled the browser wars – only this time Firefox is in the firing line, as well as Microsoft. Apple’s CEO today opened his company’s developer conference in San Francisco, where he outlined an ambitious target to take over Firefox’s 15 per cent market share. How? By releasing a Windows version of Apple’s less-than-stellar Safari browser.

Mac developers also had their definitive answer on whether Apple will open up its newest baby – the iPhone. Nope, not in a million years… Only Apple engineers will be able to add native applications to the iPhone.

Instead, Jobs offered a “sweet” workaround: to run Web 2.0 applications, written with the “latest Web standards” such as Ajax, in the Safari web browser. He outlined his vision during a Monday morning WWDC keynote where he also outlined features for the latest incarnation of Mac OS X, Leopard. Leopard, due this fall around the same time as Firefox 3, will feature Safari 3, released to beta here.
