ididwork : A twitter like service for the employees.

ididwork is a web-based service lets employees keep record of work they have completed. Employees can then submit a weekly or monthly report to their manager in the form of a chart, graph, or simple summary, and receive feedback through the system. It is designed to be useful solely from the employee’s perspective, letting them track their own progress and analyze trends over time. The service does not have to serve the enterprise, but rather can spread amongst individual users.

The idea seems simple but it tackles a big problem: it is difficult to judge productivity in big companies. In employee reviews managers often have very little idea of what an employee has done, which leads them to make judgments based on behavior that seems productive; like staying late everyday, or sending out company wide emails at three in morning. It also gives employees an idea of what their associates are working on with a news feed, eliminating the need for status meetings.

Navigaya : News, Search, Video, Music everything at one place!

Navigaya is definitively an interesting creation. There no single word to define the site, as it has almost everything we look everyday over the internet, News, Search, Video, Music, Maps, Finance, Weather, Magazines, Calender, Pictures, TV, Games, Design (that’s the categories I found in the footer nav).

One of most interesting part of it is that, there’s a music video (from Youtube, Google video etc.) playing in the background always (which you can pause or change anytime.)

Based on Adobe Flash, the site acts as a navigator for you to different sections you might be interested in. There is a timeline navigation in the footer which basically is a collection of external links of best known websites in that category, more like a ready-made bookmark list. The external links

Starting at the “Home”, You are welcomed with the blocks of different news sections, updated every few seconds, which further expands by clicking on the category, giving you list of news in the category from popular news websites.

The Search feature, which is available anytime by taking your cursor in the middle of the window, searches few popular sites like Google, Yahoo, Msn, Altavista, (and for some reason) cuil and few others in different sub windows. Which is pretty useful if you like comparing the results.

Verdict : If you don’t mind the little browser/system performance taken by flash, Navigaya makes a great start up page.

BitLet : Download Torrents online without a client

BitLet is a experimental java based online service which offers free service of torrent downloading without a client on our computer. You can choose options like incoming Port and maximum upload rate. But unfortunately this is only good for leechers as it does not have a upload/seeding service as yet.

To download the torrent file you choose, right click on the download torrent link, copy the link location (e.g. http://www.example.org/file.torrent) and then paste it in the input box at bitlet.org. Then you have only to click on “Download torrent” button. Simple enough.

Pix-Yu : Upload pics, share experiences and get paid for that !

Pix-Yu is an online virtual space where a user can share life experiences, events, journeys, holidays, meetings and much more, by uploading (unlimited) pictures.

Interesting part is, they will pay users for the number of clicks their images receive. Pix-Yu allows the user to earn just sharing pics with family, parents and with the most popular social networks. The current pay rate is 0.25€ per 1000 image views. Currently all payments are sent via PayPal. Goal is to pay out enough to keep users happy, while still being able to sustain development costs, hosting fees, salaries.

They do seems to have an effective way to keep fraud clicks out, as clicks are calculated by unique visitors, i.e 20 clicks from the same computer will count as one.

In this way, it’s possible to connect an event to an unlimited number of pictures. In the present beta release, it is possible to create maximum ten events for each registered user, but its almost ready for the final version of the website, where the user will have the chance to choose from different types of PRO accounts (silver and gold).
