Yahoo Glue Comes to the USYahoo Glue has been coming to a theater near you since May of this year and now it has finally arrived in the US. It's a twist on a typical search page showing results like news, video (including YouTube), images, wikipedia, Yahoo Shopping and more.
First launched in India, Yahoo Glue for the US is a little different starting with showing only two columns of search results instead of three. You can also search only on a limited set of topics. According TechCrunch, Glue will not replace the traditional search page for Yahoo, instead, it will be just a "useful content page that brings in data from lots of different sources on topics". Check it out for yourself: glue.yahoo.com
Using Tarpipe to Unclog the Social Media PipeTired of updating all your social networking sites one at time? Having trouble organizing and keeping track of where you are socializing? A new service offering says it can help. Tarpipe is a workflow tool that helps you organize workflows for all your content. It's an alternative to services such as Ping.fm, SocialThing and PixelPipe and it looks pretty slick. We did a quick review of Tarpipe's features which include organizing and publishing content, publishing to a number of different services at once, backlogging and tagging photos. And to top it off, Tarpipe has an extensive API library. Still in beta, we recommend you take a closer look.
