Ever heard about Techmeme? You must have if you read this blog or any other news on technology, then came Tweetmeme to aggregate tweets in a similar fashion. Today Alphonso Labs announced of coming out Pulse, an app for the iPad that provides you a nice way to read your feeds.

The team has shook hands with Posterous to make this happen, enable users to create their own individual pulses.

image thumb86 Posterous makes major updates enables photo sharing from a dozen Twitter clients

Here comes another one to make sharing photos easier on Twitter as Posterous released its new features. The startup that let you share/post anything by simply sending an email has added photo sharing as well with the help of as many a dozen Twitter clients. The bigger part of the news is that Posterous has made a huge stride forward in this by integrating some of the most popular clients, including Seesmic Desktop, Tweetie for Mac. etc and the only major player left out is TweetDeck. But does it really matter all that much? This would also enable auto-postiing to various social networking sites including Twitter, Flickr, Facebook as well as maintain your very own photo blog at Posterous. Sounds more than useful and equally enticing to have users adopting it for sharing images. So is TwitPic going to have some serious competition with Posterous? You are more than welcome to be Nostradamus and predict the future of the two as comments.
