image thumb123 TwitrPix: You guessed it right, it lets you share photos on Twitter (too)

I guess when it comes to the Web the idea is to create one app per person. There must be a dozen or so apps that let you post pictures to Twitter and out comes another; TwitrPix. Simply enter your Twitter login information to begin using the service and view the public timeline to see what others have shared using it. Neat like the very many out there, but I guess the emphasis to boost users should be at creating apps that leverage the mobile devices as well, largely because that would give a much needed boost to the startup.

image118 Another one to join the growing list of URL shorteners; UnHub

I seriously wish I start a dedicated blog to cover URL shortening services on the web. I understand there is always a room for another, but seriously URL shortening services are overpopulating the web. The most recent addition to the list is UnHub. If you have yourself registered, all you have to do is simply place your URL next to unhub.com and it generates a shortened URL. When users hit the link, the website opens with an iframe which gives them additional information like the number of times the site has bee digged, bookmarked on Delicious, etc. I can bet this isn’t the last one in the list and that I will be covering will be a couple more surfacing before the day ends.
