A good way to start is to goto DataPig Technologies - Xcelsius. They've got videos tips and tricks, like how to create your own maps.
Crystal Xcelsius also has some tips and templates: Password protections, CX-templates, Xcelsius - Best Practices, Show cases, 2. I just found Xcelsius online Help + Discussion Forum

On their site you can also find out what happens when you eat Mentos after you drink Diet Coke.

The Hype Machine crawls music blogs and lets you discover songs. The site likes to think it works like Google: crawling blogs for MP3 files, storing the files in their database as a cache and offering a full preview of the songs.
"The Hype Machine is probably the coolest music search engine. That's because you can actually listen to music and because there's a lot of underground music."

This time I listened to a product called MojoPac. Despite it's name ;-) "RingCube’s modest innovations will most certainly have a tremendous impact on anytime, anywhere computing. " Not bad review.
Check out some of the timesavers, like Dash Navigation Inc. - love to have that - or Plugged, Inc. - too early for me but great product, or Riya.com - a solution everyone will want to have. Or find your own "wannahaves", at the Demofall 2006 conference.

Opera Mini™ is a fast and tiny Web browser, that allows you to access the full Internet on your phone.
I downloaded Opera Mini to my Sony Ericsson today. I immediatelly liked the small font, the speed (everything is precompressed, which also reduces the cost), the intuative navigation and clear pictures + the Wikipedia search! It works great with Gmail, PicasaWeb and some News sites! I have yet to try out Maps, Positioning services and Music.
Before you install it, try the simulator. To install, just type mini.opera.com (in your phone) and then select your language. That's it.

Maybe in the future, search engines will be so smart that they'll be able to both answer your questions and make you smile.

The controversy has been huge; was Lonelygirl15 a legitimate work of pre-commercial art or a manipulative attack on the authenticity of community media sharing? Site favorite Brookers has signed a deal with NBC after making less than 30 videos.
It's a great success for YouTube, and the new Entertainet business. I believe it's just the beginning. YouTube - and like - will step up the competition for new talents, viewers and commercials (big money).

DimDim is a Open Source Web Conferencing program that looks really promising. The Feature list is impressiv, the Layout is intuative, and their ambitions are high: 'Just like Hotmail made free email common and Skype created the expectation that VOIP should be free - they want to make web conferencing freely accessible'.
Enjoy while it lasts. It probably won't for very long. Just type the artist, click OK. Couldn't be easier. There is no need for registration.
SideLoad is another free Music Service. The site provides more features and the recordings are better.
Here you will be able to navigate through the world of musicians who got located. Bands searching for gigs, solo musicians wanting to play live, musicians searching for a band, bands searching for a concrete musician to complete the band.

I have never seen so many Bridges between different Islands.
You send a text message from your mobile phone to your POP email account. Your text message should contain the keywords of a song title (and possibly an artist name) that you want to hear. DittyBot finds that email (he checks Mail every 45 seconds) and copies the song name into a text file. The song name is then copied into iTunes and a playlist is created from your search. Next, DittyBot loads Skype (the internet telephony app) and begins calling your mobile phone. Your mobile phone rings and when you pick it up, you should hear your song start playing in all its compressed glory. DittyBot will play your selection to you over your phone until you hang up. Mind you, this all should happen within 1 minute of sending your song request (depending on the speed of your POP server). Sometimes it’s even quicker!
While you are at the site, check out GimpShop - a merger of Gimp & Photoshop.
Also, check out this dancer. It takes an incredible amount of strength to pull these moves off.

CamStudio is able to record all screen and audio activity on your computer and create industry-standard AVI video files and using its built-in SWF Producer can turn those AVIs into lean, mean, bandwidth-friendly Streaming Flash videos (SWFs)

Book publishing just got simple. Download Free BookSmart book publishing software and create a book of photos, poetry, stories - whatever your heart desires. Blurb is a start-to-finish publishing software.
Another interesting freeware come Shutterfly. It has received top ratings: "The photos in this book are almost National Geographic quality: bright, clear, and crisp. The book-production software was also easy to use".
I can also recommend Pandoras Box - a small program that will put Pandora in your task bar. Source

NyanDesktopCamera is the software for sending a desktop as video call through Skype - it means you don't need a web-camera. It can be used to Show pictures or Remote guide someone. It can be found under Skype Extras.
Other cool plug-ins:
PrettyMay is your personal voice assistant. It can record and replay any Skype call. PrettyMay can Auto answers calls, remote access Skype voicemails and PrettyMay voicemessages from regular phone. Just imagine when it can record video and send it to you mail or phone.
A few days ago, many sites reported that the Japanese company Novac has released a product that lets you stream your home TV across Skype video. Novac set up a demo page where you can see it right in action. It’s in Japanese but I've taken the liberty to translate it with Google.
Or, do you think Skype should go web-based - before Adobe (Macromedia Flash player) or any other major player create a web-phone-service - like E-meeting from China? That is connected to a Flash Skype based Mobile Phone.
These looks useful, but I have not tried them yet
* Persony Vshow for sharing your desktop - hopefully more stable then Virtual Desktop Camera!
* Speak and Translate Chats good if you have a that do not speak english that well.
