Google Notebook is live: Here's how I plan to use it

Google Notebook is now live at

Earlier, Erica Baker posted screenshots of GNotebook and the recent version looks very much the same. There's still no way to "Blog This" your notebook clippings to Blogger or other blog platforms.

Google Notebook installs a tiny addon in Firefox and IE browsers available in the right click menu. Here's how I plan to integrate Google Notebook in my blogging workflow:

I frequently encounter websites that I want to cover in my blog later. Now with Google Notebook, I could just create a new Notebook session called "To Do" and quickly insert the website URL with a short description in the notebook.

Once I blog about the website, I could just delete the notebook entry or push it down. Simple.

Google Notebook even lets me create a catalog of web pictures without even downloading them. This is extremely handy when you are looking for "Cake Designs" for your child's first birthday - Keep saving the pictures to a custom section on Google Notebook and once the research is done, just browse your collection and pick the best.

GNotebook items can easily be dragged and dropped across different sections. You can also search the content in other user notebooks here - Google Notebooks Search. The Notebook is private by default.

How to Download Contacts from Facebook To Outlook Address Book

Facebook users are not too pleased with the "walled garden" approach of Facebook. The reason is simple - while you can easily import your Outlook address book and GMail contacts into Facebook, the reverse path is closed. There's no "official" way to export your Facebook friends email addresses or contact phone numbers out as a CSV file so that you can sync the contacts data with Outlook, GMail or your BlackBerry.

PhishTank Detects Phishing Websites by Digg Style Voting

OpenDNS, a free service that helps anyone surf the Internet faster with a simple DNS tweak , will announce PhishTank today. PhishTank is a free public database of phishing URLs where anyone can submit their phishes via email or through the website. The submissions are verified by the other community members who then vote for the suspected site. This is such a neat idea as sites can be categorized just based on user feedback without even having to manually verify each and every submission. PhishTank employs the "feedback loop" mechanism where users will be kept updated with the status' of the phish they submit either via email alerts or a personal RSS feed . Naturally, once the PhishTank databases grows, other sites can harness the data using open APIs which will remain free. OpenDNS would also use this data to improve their existing phishing detection algorithms which are already very impressive and efficient. PhishTank | PhishTank Blog [Thanks Allison] Related: Google
