Itsmy Mobile social network Itsmy has reinvented itself to emphasize mobile web based games. The first thing you see when you visit the site now is a page promoting the online games which include Celebrity Fame Game, Criminal Pizza, Love Hating Squirrels and The Cowsnatchers Trilogy. The games all have a social element, some are multi-player and all have online high scores. There are over 80 games in all and they are simple enough in their coding and design to work on virtually any phone with a browser.

Itsmy hasn’t given up on social networking either, in addition to games, the site has all the typical mobile social features including profiles, blogs and guest-books, chat rooms, forums and private messaging.

East Asian Times

News – Asia

East Asian Times The East Asian Times is a strange site. The top of each page carries a header image with the words “Ebeling Heffernan”, which is the name of a financial analytics and consulting company specializing in Asian investments. I though it was an ad banner but clicking just goes to the East Asian Times home page.

The site’s FAQ page refers to the site as The Phuket Sun with no mention the East Asian Times or Ebeling Heffernan.

Confusing branding aside, the site is a pretty good Asian news site that carries page after page of headline stories. The stories are are arranged chronologically and you can go back in time almost indefinitely,”river of news” style by clinking a “Next Page” link.
