Picnik, a web-based photo editing tool, was just acquired by Google (GOOG). The tool works with Google's Picasa Web Albums, flickr, and Facebook to help you crop, edit, and enhance your digital photos. You don't have to register at Picnik in order to use the editing tools, and the basic service works with your web browser, so you don't have to download or install any huge files. Current Picnik users can find out more about the new deal with Google by visiting Picnik's blog.
iCyte.com has a new way for you to keep track of your favorite Web sites. Instead of saving a site as a "favorite" in Internet Explorer, iCyte.com lets you store, bookmark, and highlight specific text from any site, making it easy to access the items you want whenever you want them. You can also make these "cytes" public, so others can see what you've highlighted. iCyte.com works with Firefox 3 and Internet Explorer versions 7 and 8. Click here to see how it works.
Macy's (M) and Kenneth Cole (KCP) are joining forces to launch a new line of men's sportswear set to hit stores in the fall. The new REACTION men's sportswear line targets the younger, more casual consumer with dressed down looks at lower prices. It's expected to feature items such as graphic tees, jeans and woven shirts, and will only be available at Macy's stores and at macys.com starting in September.
PackLate.com is a new travel site that works with vacation rental property managers to find you the best deals on where to stay. Like other travel sites, PackLate lets you register for alerts when prices drop, and also tells you when someone else has shown an interest in your selected property. As the day of your reservation approaches, the price gradually drops. But, like eBay, other people are watching the site so it's up to you to keep an eye on your chosen rental and book a reservation before someone else takes the deal.
