The iPad is coming to town

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Ho ho ho! Let’s sing a song for this festive season. It’s a simple song and everybody can do it… one, two, theree go!

You better watch out
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
The iPad is coming to town
Ain’t making a list
Ain’t checking it twice;
Gonna find out which queue can save time
The iPad is coming to town
It fetches mails when you’re sleeping
It’s there when you’re awake
It knows if you’ve been bad or good
There’s an app for goodness sake!
O! You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
The iPad is coming to town
The iPad Claus is coming to town

RockMelt: Your browser, re-imagined

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

Hello Interwebs! The rumors are true… starting today, we’re offering access to an early version of RockMelt, a new browser designed around you and how you use the Web.

With RockMelt we’ve re-thought the user experience because a browser can and should be about more than simply navigating Web pages. Today, the browser connects you to your world. Why not build your world right into your browser?

Your friends are important to you, so we built them in. Now you’re able to chat, share that piano-playing-cat video everyone’s going to love, or just see what your friends are up to, regardless of what site you’re on. Your favorite sites are important to you, so we built them in too. Now you can access them from anywhere, without leaving the page you’re on. And RockMelt will tell you when something new happens.

Share or tweet links often? Yeah, us too. No more wading through each site’s goofy share widget or copy-pasting URLs. We built sharing directly into the browser, right next to the URL bar. Like a site or story? Click “Share” and BAM – link shared. You can use it on any site to post to Facebook or tweet about it on Twitter. It’s just one click away. That easy.

And by the way, if you’re in the middle of THE Kingdom, just forget what you’ve just read. RockMelt will be just another Google Chrome browser because it won’t work. For the record, this is NOT RockMelt’s fault.

You can still visit http://www.rockmelt.com/ though. Bye-bye.
