Order Domino’s on TiVo?
Yes you can… The wave of software + services is starting to pick up momentum. It’s amazing the level of integration that can happen when you start thinking about what your customers need or better yet, what they want. Don’t even need to leave your couch or put down your TiVo remote to order your pizza now. I’m guessing you will be able to do the same soon on XBox Live. I love it! Thanks for checking out this post!

MacWorld MacDull: Is Apple's Innovative Era Over? | Newsweek Daniel Lyons | Techtonic Shifts | Newsweek.com
What a Scathing review from Newsweek about MacWorld. Wow. Never thought I would see that from MacWorld. An opening quote like this is a rough as it gets: “At the annual Macworld trade show in San Francisco today, Apple put on an excruciating 90-minute keynote that may go down in history as the worst Apple event of all time. In brief: for the first time in recent memory, Apple has nothing interesting to sell. And the company's remarkable decadelong run as the hottest company in consumer electronics ......

Upload Photos to Facebook from Windows Live Photo Gallery
Ever felt like it would be cool to upload photos straight from Photo Gallery? Well I definitely have. I almost downloaded Google's Picasa 3 just to be able to do this. The upload tool that's provided on Facebook.com always fails on me, so creating albums in Facebook was just too much of a pain to mess with. Fortunately Will Duff, a developer intern this past summer at Microsoft created a plug-ins for both Photo Gallery and Movie Maker. Awesome news!!!
