URL-Shortening Service tr.im To Shut Down

URLs will continue to function until 31 December 2009 and will then go dead. Yet another reason to use a self-hosted short URL service with a system like my own la petite url.

Update: tr.im has reversed it’s decision to shut down.

Imeem Is Deleting All Uploaded User Video and Images

With a week’s notice, and no way to back everything up. This is just unacceptable. You don’t do this kind of thing to your users. You could pay one of your engineers spend a day building an export tool, which in the long run costs you nothing, and buys you immense social capital. When a service is already taking away functionality (users hate this) why make it worse?

LuckyImage is a Mac OS X service that replaces any given text with the first result on a Google Image Search, inline. It works in pretty much any rich text area. Works great for iChat sillyness.
