I just read about DoubleClick being acquired for 3.1 billion by Google. Coincidentally I met Kevin Ryan, co-founder of DoubleClick, earlier today. These days he’s involved in several startups, he showed me a cool demo of one called ShopWiki. It’s a shopping search engine that indexes everything, not just paid feeds like Shopping.com does, and you can do cool stuff like search by color and neat range stuff.
Callwave has a cool service which allows you to send your voicemail to them rather than the crappy service your cell company provides. You get an email with caller ID info whenever you get a voicemail and a link to listen to it. You can also check it from your phone, like normal voicemail. It’s a freemium model. I’m loving it. The setup is just typing in a weird string of digits into your cell phone.
