Looks like MySpace is trying to play catch up to the MASSIVE lead Facebook has in this area by *finally* adding support for mobile browsing of their site and 3rd party apps/gadgets/widgets.
Just like the website version, MySpace Mobile also allows reading and send bulletins, accessing of MySpace message, approving friend requests, viewing of photos, searching for other users, posting comments, blogging, and checking out friends profiles. To access MySpace Mobile, users simply need to type m.myspace.com on their phone browsers to visit the website. Ho hum in my opinion. I don’t like looking at shitty MySpace “profiles” and their horrible layouts on my PC why would I want to subject my mobile phone to that?
Recently, MySpace started showing off its new gallery of third-party applications that users can now start adding to their profiles and to their MySpace home pages. So here they are again attempting to play catchup (feature-wise… MySpace is still the largest social site on the net) with Facebook. Most of the apps have issus, but to be fair this is still “beta” (which in the web 2.0 world means generally available but not expected to work).
I’m big into customizing my desktop. I’ve been an Object Desktop user for years… and I’m in love with Windowblinds. I was stoked when I first heard about Vista’s Gadgets, but after running Vista I can tell you that they suck, take up space, and use up memory. It’s basically useless eye candy. Thankfully, disabling it is pretty simple. Just right click on the side bar or side bar icon, select properties and uncheck the â€œStart Sidebar when Windows startsâ€ checkbox. Done. You’ll have to reboot to notice the effect, to close it without rebooting simply right click on the icon and select exit.
