Download Youtube videos, Flickr photos and more...

Webaroo has been hard at work on a newer, slicker and faster version. We made so much progress, that this version is called Webaroo 2! There are a ton of new features for download enthusiasts.

We have added video downloading to Webaroo. You can download videos from Youtube, Metacafe, Google, etc. and build your video collection. It is also easy to download videos by tag and subscribe to Youtube or Metacafe channels. And the most exciting feature is where Webaroo automatically stores all the videos played via Firefox.

You can also download Flickr photos and stay up to date on your friend's photos, or any tag, group or photoset you are interested in. Webaroo periodically checks Flickr for the photos you've subscribed to, and auto-downloads them to your computer.

We've kept the old ability to download web sites, and added an intelligent RSS feed reader that downloads the stories to your computer as well.

There's a lot more in Webaroo 2, but we'd like you to find out for yourself. Go to my.webaroo.com and download the all new Webaroo!

Happy downloading!!!

Search gets a new Radar

Hey!
We are back with a better looking and better working Search Radar.
Have a look at the make-over on this page - Search Radar home.
We now also have a plug-in for Internet Explorer. The plug-ins for both IE and Firefox integrate seamlessly with your browser and display relevant search results alongside your searches on Google or Yahoo. If you feel like bettering the search results, you can click on one of the suggested queries. The queries come with a small excerpt of what results you can expect on clicking them.

So have a go and try out the technology, we are sure you will love it. And don't forget to leave us feedback if you have any.

Roos At Ten

A few days back CenterNetworks interviewed Joshua Gross, 18 year old founder of TapeFailure and in the interview he mentions that he has been programming for about 9 years now. Which means he began coding when he was about 10. We asked some of our fellow Roo's what were they doing when they were 10 and here are the more interesting answers:

Amol was wielding brushes and crayons and sketching random things in his drawing book, riding his first bicycle and secretly admiring a classmate named Meenakshi. Today he does UI designing and rides a Enfield Bullet. Also a lot of women secretly admire him.

Ashish was playing volley-ball, building models of airports, writing poetry and getting thrown out of class for running amok with ink and scissors in the classroom. Now he codes, innovates and is known for his persuasion skills, none of which involve ink or scissors. Incidentally he saw his first  computer in the year 2000 after joining IIT.

Apparently Shilpi spent most of her time fighting with her 3 brothers. Today she handles content related issues. Also her experience with her 4 pet cats helps her maintain peace between the engineers and the non-engineers.

And as for myself: I was getting introduced to pulp fiction through Jeffery Archer and getting bullied at school (I was taking Karate lessons too - apparently they didn't help much). I wanted to be a bigtime scientist then. Today, I find rock music more interesting!! :-)
