Astrid is an online task management tool with presence across platforms ( Web app, Android, iOs). It provides a simple and no frills approach to task tracking, one that I have come to love over the years.
Its sad when nifty tools like Astrid Task / To-do List are acquired by bigger companies like Yahoo.They keep the service running for a few years and then kill it when they will find no proper monetizing solutions out of it. Same happened for Flickr a few years back.. Look at Flickr now.. abandoned and waiting to die
I dont even think Yahoo can run a half decent user facing product anymore now that it has become rigid ( and large). I certainly hope Astrid is run by the same core team as before with minimal or no interventions from the corporate honcho itself. Wishing good days ahead for Astrid.
MySmartPrice.com thinks it’s too smart. You need to login via Facebook and not only that, you share your email, your likes and your friends likes (NOTE: you are giving away your friends private info here even if your friend’s like are not public). So much data for their analytics and maybe ad campaign targeting. Then, like their page all for a discount voucher in landmark stores. ridiculous!!
