Twitter introduces @username and Activity tab

Leading micro-blogging service Twitter is constantly developing and speaking of Twitter and upcoming improvements we’re pleased to inform you that Twitter has recently added several new additions so you can keep a closer eye on the people that you follow.

Twitter has added two new tabs to its interface the @username tab and Activity tab. Both of these tabs are here to deliver you all sorts of notifications, for example, @username tab is there to replace Mentions tab, and it will notify you when somebody tags you in a tweet. In addition, this tab will also highlight favorite and retweeted tweets, and it will notify you about new followers. On the other side, we have Activity tab that works on a similar way as News Feed on Facebook and it contains notifications about the people you follow and their recent activity similar to the @username tab.

Adobe Muse: A tool that makes designing of websites a lot simpler and faster

If you’re a web designer than you probably know that coding a website isn’t simple, but folks from Adobe have introduced a new solution that should make creation of website a simple and a straightforward process.

This application is called Adobe Muse, at least in this early phase of development, and it is designed to make creation of a websites simpler and faster process for all designers. With Adobe Muse, designers need to focus only on one thing and that thing is design, with no need to write a single line of code. Adobe Muse comes with a simple user interface that will allow you to create websites simply by adding elements from the toolbar without writing any code and making the entire process a lot faster and simpler than before. You can also add Adobe files such as PSD files, but you can also add YouTube videos and Google maps with just a few clicks and Muse will write the code for you.
Adobe Muse is an interesting piece of software and if you want to try it out, make sure you download it since it is available as public beta.

Logitech K750 solar keyboard makes your Mac more eco-friendly

As far as I’m aware, I know my Macs are reasonably eco-friendly (but don’t ask me for the exact CO2 emission), however if you happen to be an eco-Mac-geek and fancy cutting down your contribution to the ozone layer further Logitech have now got a new keyboard you might like to check out.

In fact, the Logitech wireless solar keyboard has been around for a few months, the only difference is that it was available only for Windows PCs. Users on Amazon have given it brilliant reviews and feedback overall is fantastic, the fact that the keyboard is pretty portable, slim and can go on without any light for three whole months has been its main selling point. For this new Mac version, very little of that has changed – standard layout with concaved keys for greater comfort, as a bonus though, it will be available in five different colours as you can see below. Compatibility will be with all Macs, OS X 10.4 or above.
