Project Playlist Music Website Review

Style: Project Playlist used to have a black, blue and white layout that was gaudy. The black background made everything else stand out but did not go well with advertisements placed around the website. Since then, Project Playlist has been redesigned and looks much better. The website is cleaner, more organized and easier to navigate. The new color scheme includes variations of blue, yellow and orange. Project Playlist has advertisements but they do not interfere with the content on this website. Many of the site members are featured prominently on the homepage.

Ease of Use: The search feature yields tons of results, even if you are trying to find old songs. You can then create a playlist and add songs immediately by pressing a button that resembles the "plus" sign. There is no need to worry about faulty music tracks interrupting the flow of your playlist. If a song is no longer available, it is automatically skipped on the playlist. The following song on the playlist will start to play automatically.

Project Playlist will also let you know if a music track has malfunctioned or is not available in the search results. However, Project Playlist rarely has faulty tracks in the search results. Prior to the redesign, non-members of this website would have to register in order to build a music playlist. Now, you can build a playlist without having to register but with limited restrictions. While non-members can build a quick playlist on the homepage, only five songs can …

With the rising popularity of eCards, there are many websites from which to choose. After sifting through many of these websites, I’ve compiled a list of the top 5 places to find great free graduation eCards – without the hassle of “free trials”.

  1. Hallmark.com
    The Hallmark name is a staple in the card industry, so it only makes sense that they’ve expanded into the eCard market. Hallmark has many graduation eCards, most of which are free. They offer a plethora of options including flash, interactive and photo slideshow cards. You can find humorous or more sentimentally themed cards.

You can choose to send the eCard immediately or choose a date in the future. One of my favorites is the hoops&yoyo graduation card titled “You Graduated!”.

Google Snaps Photo Editing Web Site

March has seen Google quietly move forward in its quest to control the world (or at least the Internet) as it acquired the image editing Web site Picnik. This is actually not too surprising considering Google's dedication to productive Web applications.

Picnik allows users to modify photos and other images online without requiring the installation of software like Photoshop. There is a free and a premium version of Picnik, giving those who use the service more often and require more features to have more tools available with the purchase of a monthly subscription fee. Google is already in the image business with its Picasa photo sharing Web site and desktop application. People use this mostly to store and transmit photographs and create personalized slide shows. Picasa users can connect to third party services to purchase prints, post cards, and other services. With Picnik under its umbrella, it's easy to see that Google's image processing capabilities will be greatly enhanced.

Not much in the way of details about Google's deal for Picnik are known yet. Some analysts expected that Yahoo! Would be after Picnik since the service is already integrated into its Yahoo! Mail service. Seeing that Picnik is easily integrated into mail services, it's reasonable to expect the new acquisition to find its way into Gmail, although it's unclear what form that service will take.

Although a combination of Picasa and Picnik would seem like a likely outcome of Google's recent move, no one is clear as to what to …
