Remember eWorld, Apple’s attempt at an ISP?

eWorld was an online service operated by Apple Inc. between June 1994 and March 1996. The services included email (eMail Center), news, software installs and a bulletin board system (Community Center). Users of eWorld were often referred to as “ePeople.”

Based on a similar service from America Online, eWorld was expensive compared to other services and not well marketed, and failed to attract a high number of subscribers. The service was only available on Apple’s Macintosh and Apple IIGS and had limited support on the Newton MessagePad handheld devices, though a PC version had been planned.

Every Pokémon Is Someone’s Favorite

Every Pokémon Is Someone’s Favorite is an internet axiom that asserts every one of the 1,000-plus Pokémon in the Pokémon franchise is at least one person’s personal favorite.

Never a truer word said. With over 7 billion people on the planet and just over 1,000 Pokémon in existence, I like those odds.

Wiby – a search engine for lovers of the old Web

Why Wiby?

In the early days of the web, pages were made primarily by hobbyists, academics, and computer savvy people about subjects they were personally interested in. Later on, the web became saturated with commercial pages that overcrowded everything else. All the personalized websites are hidden among a pile of commercial pages. Google isn’t great at finding them, its focus is on finding answers to technical questions, and it works well; but finding things you didn’t know you wanted to know, which was the real joy of web surfing, no longer happens. In addition, many pages today are created using bloated scripts that add slick cosmetic features in order to mask the lack of content available on them. Those pages contribute to the blandness of today’s web.

The Wiby search engine is building a web of pages as it was in the earlier days of the internet. In addition, Wiby helps vintage computers to continue browsing the web, as pages indexed are more suitable for their performance.

What is/was Pseudo.com?

“Pseudo ran like a cable network, live-streaming content throughout the day on different channels, rather than making individual content available on demand. It was a somewhat premature experiment in the days of slow Internet connections.”
