New Cool Edition to this Site

Introducing Snap Shots from Snap.com

I just installed a nice little tool on this site called Snap Shots that enhances links with visual previews of the destination site, interactive excerpts of Wikipedia articles, MySpace profiles, IMDb profiles and Amazon products, display inline videos, RSS, MP3s, photos, stock charts and more.

Sometimes Snap Shots bring you the information you need, without your having to leave the site, while other times it lets you "look ahead," before deciding if you want to follow a link or not.

Should you decide this is not for you, just click the Options icon in the upper right corner of the Snap Shot and opt-out.

Here's some of the reviews of Snap Shots from the tech community:

"Snap Shots is an efficiency tool – it saves time for the reader, and that's a good thing for the publisher. I like it so much I put it on TechCrunch."
--Michael Arrington, Editor, TechCrunch.com

"Snap Shots allows our readers to save time clicking, they can preview the site we're sending them to, see if it's a retailer they like, if the item is in stock, and make an informed decision before committing to a click-through."
--Michelle Madhok
