PhotoShop Express

Photo professionals now have another choice for not only online album storage but also for photo editing. Adobe's PhotoShop Express features both. So now you only need to upload your images just once. And since these guys are the creators of the desktop Photoshop, their tools for this express version must be pretty awesome.

Flex Filter 100K Records

This guy did an awesome flex example of using the filterFunction to search through a datagrid of 100,000 records. The performance of the filterFunction is very, very good, thanks to Adobe.

This marketplace serves buyers and sellers from all over the world who have or want uniquely created products. Their shopping cart is very interesting.

AtlasPost: Map of Blogs

I have this blog on and every now and then I will click on the Next Blog button to see someone's interesting blog. It is always a random blog I see whenever I click the Next Blog button. It make me wonder what other blogs are out there. I am especially curious about what other blogs are written by people near my location.

Now I can actually see what other bloggers live near me and get an idea about what they are blogging about. In the future I imagine their maps will have "layers" by which I can easily filter down into bloggers with similar interests as me. There could be layers for gender, interests, last blog update, etc. So I could search for all males who have posted something within the last month about skateboarding and who live near me.
