I actually use the New Myspace

But first, some miscellany-

Windows Startup Weekend Contest

Funnel made it past the first round of judging of the Windows Startup Weekend Contest! Now for the hard part – developing a Windows store version of it by March 1 (yikes).

On TV Netflix 
With Matt – Friday Night Lights, Star Trek TNG, Freaks and Geeks
By My Lonesome- The Vampire Diaries, Psych, How I Met Your Mother (again)

Note: Friday Night Lights was great to start watching before the Super Bowl. It doles out football knowledge in digestible pre-cut one-play-per-episode format. Remember when the Ravens took a safety to run down the clock at the end of the fourth? I totally understood that!

Note 2: It’s hard to find stuff I want to watch when Matt isn’t around. He has a blacklist of shows that I save to watch with him (a la Prognosis Negative), leaving behind some pretty slim pickings. I usually end up just watching the same stuff over and over again.

And Now: The New Myspace
Last week I checked out the New Myspace, and I’m actually still using it. It’s like a YouTube for songs – you can play anything you want (that they have) on demand and even create playlists. I was using IHeartRadio before, but it’s a radio model where you can’t control what plays. With Myspace, if you need to punish your co-worker with Desperately Wanting on repeat because he’s acting up, you can do it! (This is a sad tale in which I caved in first after about 15 listens and switched the song).

Myspace has a lot of videos available as well (you can ask anyone – I love music videos). And best of all – it’s free with no ads! Enjoy that while it lasts.

Ok, so it turns out Myspace is not actually the YouTube of songs, because I couldn’t share a playable link here. YouTube is the YouTube of songs.

If you have an iPhone, or a blog, or take pictures, or make things, you might enjoy our new app!

Funnel: Share your creations, straight from your phone.

When I started blogging, I was surprised by how much work it was to embed pictures in a post. Especially since I take most of my pictures with my phone, I thought I should be able to create a picture post in just a few minutes, instead of doing a bunch of uploading, embedding, then formatting to get it to look right.

So we created Funnel, an app that allows you to create and share picture stories in minutes. You don’t even have to set up a blog!

Step 1: Photo-Funnel
Pull in photos you’ve already created (on phone, Instagram, etc.), and stitch them together to make a post in minutes. Funnel takes care of all the formatting, so you can focus on creating more content.

Step 2: Insta-Blog
Publish your post out to Blogger, and soon WordPress and Tumblr. If you don’t have a blog, your content is still published beautifully to web at your Funnel homepage: http://funnel-app.com/maryann

Hear what the fans have to say about Funnel -

“It makes me want to make more stuff.”
“It’s like Instagram and Pinterest combined…great for DIY and crafting!”
“Perfect for my cooking projects.”

By the way, here’s my best invention ever.

Funnel is available for iPhone and iPad
Funnel is coming soon to Windows Phone

And its free :)

If you do end up checking it out, I’d love to hear how it went. Leave a comment or email! maryann@madmarv.com
