Myspace fight back

by thebeebs 27. April 2009 03:09

myspace_music_launch Seems like Myspace are fighting back at Facebook and improving their system to try and replicate more of the Facebook features which have helped Facebook overtake the fledgling social network.

The new chat system that Myspace have implemented is technically more solid and better designed than the Facebook one, the only problem is I'm yet use it since all my friends have moved to Facebook. It will be interesting to see what Myspace do to regain ground lost to Facebook, as far as I'm concerned though they need to offer something over and above what Facebook have to offer. If I was in charge at Myspace I'd do a deal with one of the mobile phone companies and start offering free SMS messaging, that would have people returning in their droves!

IE8 Install

by thebeebs 26. April 2009 03:02

ie8-install The new IE 8 is out and it's gaining traction. Already it's more popular than both chrome and opera and ater the windows update run I imagine it'll be way above 5% by the end of the month.

I've have mixed feeling about the IE8 update, I can't understand why it requires a reboot, The firefox upgrade from 2 to 3 was so much smoother. On my work machine, a windows 2003 server, IE8 won't install after upgrading it simply closes as soon as I open it. Tried to uninstall and reinstall twice and still no joy. At mome on my windows vista box the experiance has been far less painfull, I accepted the windows update and the next day I got prompted to choose my search settings; simple.

Let me know your IE install experiances in the comments.
