Use Google Calendar, Wordpress, Blogger from any IM Client

Imagine this - create a new event in your Google Calendar via Google talk or MSN Messenger. Or write a new post on your blog hosted on Blogger, Typepad or Wordpress using Yahoo! Messenger ?

Well, you can do all these things and even without even launching the web browser - just add IMified to your favorite messenger software and you are ready to go.

IMified is in open beta but if you visit their homepage, there's no link to sign up for the service. That's because this unique and very innovative service works completely inside your IM client like Yahoo!, MSN or Google Talk.

Like twitter, you invite an email address ( or via your IM and that immediately appears in your messenger's friend list.

Once you setup the account, any text IM that you send to your new buddy, the message automatically gets added to the relevant service like Blogger, Google Calendar, BaseCamp Remember the Milk or 30 Boxes.

There are two advantage of using imified - you get access to all services in one place plus things can be done really fast without having to wait for pages to load in your browser.

And there's more - you can retrieve existing items from your TODO lists or calendars and even edit or delete them - right from your messenger. Imified can also be used from your mobile phone if you the IM software installed.

Wish they add support for twitter and more online calendar services like Yahoo! and MSN.

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
