APRIL 2011


A new bookmarking site

By: Ask Bob, April 11, 2011
We are all aware of the concept of online bookmarking. For those of you who aren't, just click on the 'Bookmarks' link on the Browser you are using. This Startup called Rinnku is a bookmarking website that allows a user to tag all his fav stories or links, online, save them in folders, in order to make it easy for him/her to refer to them at a later stage from any web-enabled device.
This Startup helps you to do a lot of things, the 1st & foremost is to bookmark a story or a link & store it for access in the future.
Rinnku, registered in Florida, USA, is free to use. All that you have to do is to register yourself & get going. Using rinnku.com you can not only bookmark but also organize your tags under various categories such as Gaming, Technology, Offbeat...& so on.
By default, Rinnku suggests that you store your links privately. You can make them public either when creating them or at a later date if you want to. Each link can be given a #tag (or a bunch of tags). This allows you to associate keywords to a link to make it easier to find it in the future.

For example - you might want to save http://www.internetvibes.net/gallery/pug-dogs-dressed-as-famous-people/ with a #tag of #funny. Or you could save it with the tags #dogs, #ummm and #iwonderwhatfamouspeoplethinkofthis.

The #fave tags are like speed dials for your bookmarks. Any link with a #fave tag is shown on your home page if Home page view on the Settings page is set to Links with #fave tag. There's much more to Rinnku like a Search Engine within your own links or all links listed on it.


Wanna make a juicy website? Try Jux

By: Ask Bob, April 21, 2011

Hey guys, our Web Spiddies came across this rather interesting bit of information which remains unchecked but even then, here it is - every day, there are 8 million websites being built. Whew! Butbuilding a website from scratch no longer is a complicated exercise, needing developers to know some complex codes. It has become as easy as...well, lets say drawing on a piece of paper. To be honest, not exactly that simple, but a whole load simpler than what it was say 5 years ago. Anyway, coming back to the point, there is a new service that allows you to build a website for free. And..as many of them as you want. Jux uses a browser-based interface to help you make your website.
As we said before, with a staggering 8 million websites hitting the Web every day, there is indeed a market out there for Startups like Jux.
Website building is no longer rocket science or as difficult an exercise as it used to be a few years ago. There are many services out there in the Web World that hold the hands of a wannabe website owner & train him/her into building a site with ready templates. Jux helps people create (& share) websites, themes, page templates, widgets, Media & so on. It combines Open Source & Creative Commons principles.
This Startup is an open-source sitebuilder that lets website creators copy, mix & modify components or entire websites without any coding. Jux hosts the websites on an open-source WebDAV server that handles data, versions, & permissions - basically Cloud Computing.
Jux is free to use. Except for an initial registration, there is nothing else to it. A user can start building as many websites he/she wants on Jux. Users have to pay for other things such as  domain names  & other premium services. What is more, the guys at Jux do not insist on website owners displaying ads of Jux on their sites in exchange for services provided. Users also have access to the code of their websites, widgets, themes or pages.
What this Startup also providers to users is a host of images & even website designs to pick & chose from. Users can explore Jux sites, find one they wanna copy, & make it their own. Thus, there  is no need to create a site from scratch anymore.
Jux is run by a team of 7 developers & 3 designers, who as they say, hang out on the border between SoHo & Chinatown in New York – "plus everyone who contributes a site or theme or widget to the world's first web making community."
