Brilliant! Screenstagram, a screensaver for Instagram - TNW Apps The world was waiting with bated breath when Instagram released its API this past February. Since then, we’ve seen numerous playful web apps giving users 30-seconds of playtime until they forget the we.b ad.dr.ess or CuTE app name. The Barbarian Group, a NYC based media group always at the lead of innovation, has just released an Instagram-driven screen saver called “Screenstagram” for Mac that’s impossible to forget once installed (unless of course, you never take your mitts off your keys).

Google couldn't buy Groupon, so instead it's going to try and clone it. Mashable reports that Google is launching a daily deals service called Google Offers that will work almost exactly like Groupon, Livingsocial, and the countless other deals sites out there. Users will sign up to receive a daily email about an offer in their area. If enough users agree to the offer, it triggers the deal to go through. Apparently Google will hold 80% of the business's revenue share for three days, and the remaining 20% for another 60 days to cover refunds. Google has released a canned statement that basically confirms Offers is real -- apparently Google sent information about the project to small businesses to test their interest.

Motherhood Uncensored: How Facebook refucked up my marriage I reluctantly rejoined Facebook last month after enjoying being completely unconnected to ex-boyfriends, college roommates, and my babysitter. But since everyone and their ex-boyfriends, college roommates, and babysitters are on Facebook, I had to get myself back into the loop. This time, however, I made myself unsearchable, and really only use it to promote Cool Mom Picks and the Mominatrix stuff, hoping to maintain a fairly low profile, or at least one that doesn't scream "Hey, all my relatives with my husband's last name! Come find me and read what I write about you on my blog!" which is probably a good idea since it also just so happens that my mother-in-law is on Facebook too. And as I recently learned, my husband.
Man Legally Changes Name to Captain Awesome The Oregonian man formerly known as Douglas Allen Smith Jr. was inspired by a character on the NBC show Chuck to legally change his name to Captain Awesome. The character’s name is Dr. Devon “Captain Awesome” Woodcomb, and is apparently so awesome that people in real life legally change their names due to the sheer amount of awe said character exudes.

Gary V: Chatroulette Would Have Worked With Facebook Connect Because The Penises Would Have Names Wine Library founder Gary Vaynerchuk took the stage at Le Web today to talk about the importance of the human element in business. It’s really easy to not take the extremely quotable GaryVee seriously, because he spits out more platitudes than anyone you’ve ever met. But if you get past tired maxims like “Entrepreneurial success is not about luck…it is about focus and work” and things like “What’s the ROI of your mom” or “All the other bullshit is horseshit,” Vee comes up with some pretty interesting stuff (My “Phone Call Is Dead” post is inspired by a Gary Vee tweet and I’m about to write another one on “Google Is The New Resume” which is also derived from a Vee quote).
How the World Googled in 2010 Shortly after Yahoo released its list of the year's top searches, Google has announced the results of its annual zeitgeist report, revealing the most popular search terms of 2010 by region and worldwide. The search giant analyzed billions of searches performed in 2010 and compared them with searches from 2009 to surface emerging trends. Chatroulette, the iPad and Justin Bieber were the three fastest-rising search terms in 2010; Twitter and Facebook also made the list, at numbers eight and 10, respectively. Among the items of interest that lost the world's attention in 2010 were swine flu, Stephanie Meyer's novel (and the accompanying movie) Twilight: New Moon, Susan Boyle, Slumdog Millionaire, "MySpace layouts" and Michael Jackson. The iPad was the emergent search winner in the consumer electronics category, followed by the iPhone 4, Nokia 5530, HTC EVO 4G and Nokia N900.
Google officially unveiled the long-anticipated Chrome Web Store at its big Chrome event today. Think of the Web Store as the App Store, but for the Chrome browser. The apps work both in the Chrome web browser and in Google's upcoming Chrome OS. Google showcased some of the apps that will be available in the Web Store from companies like NPR, The New York Times, EA and Amazon.com. Google will be rolling out the Chrome Web Store to Chrome users later today and it will be accessible via https://chrome.google.com/webstore. Mashable's Jolie O'Dell is live at the event, and we'll have hands-on writeups of the new store, Chrome OS and the apps throughout the day. Google Officially Unveils Chrome Web Store

In March 1936, an unusual confluence of forces occurred in Santa Clara County. A long cold winter delayed the blossoming of the millions of cherry, apricot, peach, and prune plum trees covering hundreds of square miles of the Valley floor. Then, unlike many years, the rains that followed were light and too early to knock the blossoms from their branches. Instead, by the billions, they all burst open at once.
