I have 5 invites to Mailplane, the MacOS X desktop gmail app. Let me know in comments if you need one. No need to give an email address, I can take it from your profile.
I tried it for about 10 minutes and I can't say I'm awed. It's a good idea and should be supported for further development for sure. We need to merge more online and desktop applications for the ultimate user experience.
I know this is a Mac focused site, but I couldn't pass up the chance to share this with everyone. It seems Microsoft is offering their top of the line collection -Office Ultimate- for the insanely cheap price of $59.95! Yes, $59.95!!!
The only catches (besides the fact it's only for Windows) are that you need to be a student and have an email address from your school ending in .edu.
If you're a true designer you will feel right at home in this game. It's a classic 2D spaceship game with stunning art direction that depicts doodles on a sketchbook. Great way to spend those 10 minute compulsory breaks that you must take to every hour or so to stay fresh in mind and spirit. The game even features multiplayer over the internet. Let's see if we can find each other on the net.
Google announced a new feature called Web History, which is basically a personalized search that allows you to search within the pages you visited in the past. Web History logs your searches by the different search tools and the pages you visited. The cool thing about it is that it's not restricted to one computer. It logs all your activity anywhere you are logged in to your Google account.
