My Reviews

Amplify

SAM's Daily Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used amplify since it started, and the amplify add-on for Firefox has worked like a charm. It's very easy to clip parts of an article, or a url or other important information, and send it straight to my Amplog, Plurk, Twitter, Diigo, Blogger, Tumbler, Facebook, Posterous, ping.fm, bit.ly, and a host of other social networks and blogging web applications. There is great support from the Amplify team and others in the network.

Blog Better! - Writing Helper by Zemanta

Irrelevant RAM Hog Rated 3 out of 5 stars

At first, Zemanta seemed like an excellent idea, but I discovered that it requires a great amount of RAM memory to keep up with the pictures. Most of the pictures were irrelevant and the software did not seem to "learn" based on my choice of tags. If you are a beginner, I would say use Zemanta, you will gain a great amount of experience in selecting correct tags and pictures. Often the pictures that I did want to use had to be purchased, so I now use a variety of Creative Commons Tools based on Flickr images.

Lazarus: Form Recovery

Lazarus Review Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If Lazarus works for form filling retrieval as well Interclue works for an advanced peek at websites, it will be a fantastic tool. I really need it.

Clipmarks

Nothing Better in its Class Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Clipmarks adds value to your browsing, browsing, clipping and sharing experience. Being a bookmark and hotlist afficionado, I was curious about ClipMarks. I already had del.icio.us, but I was drawn to the added feature of clipping quotable material.

I first added Clipmarks in early June, 2007 because it sounded like a great free tool for research. On the fly, I could copy snippets of the article I found important,as well as, properly quote and cite information for later use.

Being a teacher, I immediately could see the potential value for students researching a topic on the internet. When they found an article, they could clip it, store it online, and use it later for their research. I thought it would be especially helpful for teachers who ask students to find Current Event articles in their study area.

What I didn't know was that Clipmarks is a very powerful add-on program. You can clip snippets, pictures and save them to your online file. Also, you can tag your article in del.icio.us or magnolia. Your comments, are yours, they belong to you, so you can use them later in your research. Another striking feature is the ability to send your clipmark to your blog(there are several) or get code to embed in blogs, like MySpace, that are not supported. There are a vast array of other extras available in Clipmarks that you will want to use.

All your Clipmarks can be private, but by making your clips public, you have the added benefit of community. There is a community of "clippers" who can pop your clipmarks. The pop is a way to acknowledge your clip as intersting or important. They add your clip to their database...with credit to you. Also, people can comment on a public clip. Many times, clippers have led me to other similar articles.
Clipmarks is a wonderful online tool, with a tiny icon(w/dropdown menu) and a great community that is more agile and responsive than Digg!

You can lock in redundant bookmarking to del.icio.us, so I think everyone should add-on ClipMarks....

Did I mention that I love Clipmarks, and I am reviewing it after using it for several months? Yeah! It's true.
