Marketing to Women: Can I get this gadget in pink?

Posted on March 31, 2006. Filed under: general, newsvine, style, women |

Can I get this gadget in pink?

Does offering a product in pink make it attractive and user friendly for women? I, personally, am a big fan of pink (I’ve learned to embrace my girlie side), but I’m a bigger fan of usability. What do you think?

Nifty Corners Cube

Nifty Corners Cube by Alessandro Fulciniti.
One of the many very cool tutorials on rounding corners in web design. This one is particulary neato because it’s done without the use of images using javascript and CSS.

Crazy Egg is Crazy Cool

Posted on March 24, 2006. Filed under: general, Web2.0 |

The very cool folks at Crazy Egg saw my post on this quiet little blog and invited me to try out their beta. First off, let me say the set up is super simple and response is quick. I just set it up on my company’s site (www.globalcache.com) this morning so I don’t have too much feedback yet, but I’m liking what I’m seeing. I very briefly showed the big boss man (our CEO) how it works and he was impressed enough to ask for a demo at our next company meeting on Wednesday. I love when the hype measures up to the product. Having been through the last “bubble,” I take pleasure in recognizing a technology/service that might actually move beyond buzzwords and into a viable business model.

Thanks, Crazy Egg.

43 Best Blogs Wiki

Posted on March 23, 2006. Filed under: blogging, general, web |

43blogs

A list of the supposed best 43 blogs on the Web. But it’s a wiki so it’s editable by anyone. Hmm.

How do we know that we have the right 43 blogs listed at any one time? Easy, you are the “we” at 43 Best. We are you. You spin me right round. Other lists depend on the work of one or two individuals. If you use this site please place the 43 Best badge on your site or at least blog about it – this gets more fun if more people know about it.

Add a blog, delete a blog. The answer to Web 2.0 is ’43’, so please leave the site with the same Zen as you found it. FYI – just click on approve to approve the links.

I want Crazy Egg

Posted on March 22, 2006. Filed under: general, web design, Web2.0 |

crazy egg

I am dying to try out Crazy Egg. Of all the Web 2.0 over-hyped betas getting ready to launch, this is one I’m eagerly awaiting. I think Crazy Egg will be an incredibly valuable tool…especially for fairly lazy marketing and design folk like myself. Web logs are great and all, but I would love a visual tool to detail clicks, etc.

For more information on Crazy Egg, read the TechCrunch review and Read Pete Cashmore’s write up.

On a similar, but more basic front, I’ve just started testing Mapsurface which a little snapshot tracking widget that might be pretty handy also. Check out Andy Budd’s review for more info.
