Soooo... my latest toy for making life easier comes in the form of 'digsby'.
It allows you to send 'tweets' via Twitter, chat with people on Facebook and see what's going on with people on MySpace. It'll even let you check your e-mail, use the main chat clients such as MSN, AOL, GTalk etc and having your main forms of communication in one place is handy if nothing else and it saves having to use the horribly clunky Facebook chat interface! So, even though it's not the prettiest thing out there, (it does let you customize it a bit in the style of a teenage boy's retro 1980s' bedroom)... and I don't think that Mac or Linux versions are available at the mo... and it doesn't support things like 'FriendFeed' or 'Plurk' - it supports the main big boys and no doubt others will be added as they emerge from the web 2.0 heap.
Yup, this is on my 'nice little toy' list for now. Solves my general 'fed up of flicking from this to that' issue anyway! And it hasn't made my poor laptop collapse in a sad, resource-hogged little pile either. Which is always nice. :o)
