Web app’s that need upgrades

Filed under: blog, culture, internet, musings, social networking — bardicknowledge @ 9:23 am

I have been slinking around the net and attempting to bring everything together with SMS, IM, email and feeds, but a few places have been more than annoying with their lack of certain features. So I am going to make a list of the web apps that I use that I think need some updates.Please note that I am aware that many of these features can be achieve with scripts or APIs, but I would like to see there features natively to get full functionality, such as SMS updates/reminders.    Twitter: GROUPS! Twitter needs built in groups. There is one that I know of using the API, but I would love to see that feature built in. I want to be able to tweet a group and send a txt to my entire apartment, or my pen and paper friends.Google Reader: Search. Wtf is the point of me starring objects if I can’t bloody well go back and search for them later. Google Reader: Organization of starred items. I want to go back and view these items by tag, or date. Not just a huge stream. Google Calendar : A to-do list! GIVE ME A BLOODY TODO list! And allow me to update the thing using the current way I add events. Just have it as a keyword. So: todo get food, kill neighbor, eat offspring.  That way it still works with twitter, which means I can use my cell to add items! Gtalk/Gmail – SMS to message gmail members.  So that I can send an email or message to friends that don’t have a cell or text messaging.   FaceBook – Wallposting/PMing through SMS. Something like: Frank John w Hey frank! Party in 2 hours. I’m downtown. Get your shit together. Gmail/Facebook – Option to send SMS to members/friends if they have already set up the SMS function within the site.Gtalk – SMS instead of IMing a person.  Again, just using simple text commands.Gtalk:Bardic, you there?SMS@Bardic Where the hell are you?   Well there is something to chew on. I may think of more things later, but I want all these updates. So Google/Twitter, pleassse please please please please add these. I have been bitching for a while and I can keep doing it. You two are the best at what you do and I want you to be the center of my social life lol. So please take the step.

  2. well I know it was like a year ago but I had a question….I did and It helped a lot by the way, but my question is that when I ran the patch it said something about changing my Windows config files and that I needed to insert my Windows XP disk at once. This can’t come back and bite me in the butt can it?
