    Post Google alerts vs. Trackle alerts (tracklets)
    Hey guys, I just came across this great tool called trackle. I'm a person who use to use google alerts 24x7 but since I started using trackle's “tracklets”, I've never looked back. Trackle helps you track just about anything - movies, books, youtube videos, events, jobs, birthdays….just anything and everything which is traceable on the internet. It also provides real time alerts of things like job listings, product prices and financial information, which is really cool. But the main feature that made me prefer it to any other alerts is the "Crime Tracklet". Now I can track crime in my neighborhood!

    Cheers,
    Jack

    You've been busy promoting this product. What's your relationship with the company?

    I smell tinned meat.

    Trackle has a writeup at Techcrunch if you're interested.

    Normally I'd nuke a post like this from orbit, but some of those features (especially in the shopping category) might be marginally useful.

    But I look at something like this and tend to wonder how it is monetised. After all, Trackle has to be in it for a profit.. so how does it do it?

    you guys can't spot spam a mile away.

    there also might be some HTML in his post as some of the abw javascript is acting funky.

    Despite the and the claim that he "just came across" this thing, it seems cool enough.

    Anyone used it? I am asking around to see if anyone has any experience with it.

    Can't see any HTML in it. And as I said.. it smells of tinned meat. But sometimes tinned meat is what you want.

    Must go off and order some generic viagra now.

    Well of course there's plenty of Javascript here, but nothing that I can see that's dodgy.

    Firefox + Noscript is a good thing to have if you're worried about rogue Javascript. Admittedly it does break just about every web site until you tell it that you trust the page and it can be a real PITA if you're buying something, but it makes life much safer (and you can always turn it off temporarily).
