Expanding its technology for linking e-mail signature information and address books, startup Kwaga announced a new service that lets people turn those signatures into active information.
The Parisian company already offers a service called WriteThat.name that scours e-mails for contact information then copies it into Gmail, Notes, or Outlook address books. That's handy for people receiving e-mail, but now Kwaga added a new service called AddMe that's for people sending e-mail.
To use AddMe, people include a hyperlinked text that says "[+] Add me to your address book" in their signature blocks. When a recipient clicks … Read more
Frustration is an essential element of the human condition.

You don't know who your friends are, so you have to be careful where and to whom you air your frustrations. However, given its essentially public nature, perhaps Twitter is not the best place and Twitterers are not the best ears.
Some people, though, can help themselves no more than when they are confronted with a chocolate … Read more
Keeping track of your time with a busy work schedule can be quite hard.

It is a small and rather simple app that can simplify this process.
RemindMeAgain for Mac installs directly from the App Store and takes the form of a menu bar item. It is composed of a single pop-over window with only a few options to let you set … Read more
Every year, the geekiest of geeks make their annual pilgrimage to Austin, Texas, for the increasingly hip and increasingly crowded South by Southwest festival.
The event is split into three branches for film, music, and interactive, but we at CNET tend to focus on the last of these, for obvious reasons. SXSWi, as the tech-focused portion of the festival is sometimes called, acts as a sort of gigantic picnic-slash-cocktail-party for tech entrepreneurs, investors, and even regular enthusiasts to mingle at and talk bits and bytes.
And while the sentiment has noticeably tapered off a bit this year, many app developers … Read more

With many photo-editing applications on the market, it's hard to choose one that is legitimately useful or at least amusing. Make Me Bald is neither. It functions poorly and features are limited.
This app loads easily and it's quite straightforward due to its uncomplicated nature. The application initially hesitated when opened, but eventually opened to a stock image. A universal menu button at the bottom of the screen allows you to take a picture from within the application. We tested this app on three different devices -- Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Acer Iconia A100, and Asus Transformer Pad -- … Read more
