Site of the week: Goowy

This week’s site is Goowy.com. I went there a good while ago (from some email), but upon returning to the web site a lot has changed – looks more polished, and feature-rich.

http://www1.goowy.com/

Check the “flashy” version! Now they have RSS, games, will have storage, and so on in addition to email. (Didn’t remember any of that from when I was there the first time). They also have a desktop client — has a yahoo widgets/dashboard feel – but they’re called “minis” – also includes a very mac style “mini” to open games, mail, calendar, etc.

So if you haven’t checked out this site lately, might want to go back. It looks nice, and seems pretty useful.

    Hi Jen,I read your comments on web based personalized desktops. I was wondering if you have visited http://www.pageflakes.com already? We are offering a similar service allowing you to read news feeds and setting up multiple pages that can be customized with local weather, address book, todo lists, event finders, TV guides and much more. Looking forward to hearing from you. Maybe you have some thoughts on what we can improve.Thanks and best regardsTegan

    cannon fodder for the anti-flash brigade – I’ve just given up after a painfully slow and unresponsive experience on a pretty high spec laptop and 2Mb connection – check out http://www.netvibes.com – been using it for a few months now – fast, simple and functional.

    I checked out Altoids — looks like they’ve gone 100% video. Crazy good!
