Startup Roundup

Rumor: 3G iPhone to be delayed?

Moo, which recently moved offices in London, has a new roof (see above), which doubles as a terrace. Lucky them!

So in the spirit of other more minor items of interest, here’s a roundup of smaller items from a bunch of UK and Irish startups, in no particular order:

Zebtab has a new channel, iwantoneofthose (IWOOT), the internet gadget retailer.

The Filter has launched some new features for its beta testers including new profile pages, instant playlists now for Windows and personalized RSS feeds.

• Mobile games community Playoo is working on improving the game selection process, which powers the Game Stream, to give users more control over it, and to provide better results out of the box.

Businessitonline has ‘retired‘ many of the popup windows that are used to add or modify entries in the system (such as calendar entries, contacts, receipts, payments and contact history).

Rummble was featured by Ariadne Capital, the London based Investment and Advisory Firm, as part of their look at WebMission. has a few ideas about how to fix Twitter and is off to a few events.

Howardbaines, which created AltertThingy, think “the reasons suggested behind Twitter’s problems reflect wider issues.”

• Following their recent funding, Cloudmade have moved offices and a bunch of new people have joined (see above).

• Ireland-based World TV has been tweaking its interface with a few other improvements: “It’s slicker, it’s more compact, it has a new blue progress bar which we think looks smarter…”

• Slicethepie has hit the 1 million reviews mark since launching, less than a year ago. The millionth review was of the track ‘Coming Home’ by Laura Stevenson.

• Stealthmode startup Snagsta went to NESTA’s Innovation Edge conference rcently and was impressed by Gordon Brown’s jaw and found a “list of habits that help you spot Bad Managers & Entrepreneurs”.

• Dublin’s PutPlace compiled a big spreadsheet that records, among other things, how much free storage space each online service offers. For the record, PutPlace offers 2 GB for free.

Polldaddy re-started its RSS feeds and it should run a lot smoother from here on in.

• Real estate search engine Nestoria added Team Association listings, from their property portal Teamprop.

• Huddle have been making Smoked turkey & coleslaw cholla rolls. Mmmnnnn… Oh and are were hiring. (CrunchBoard anyone?)

• WebJam has been adding a few new smaller features for users.

    The Zebtab links didn’t work – I think they should be .com

    Hi Mike,

    Exciting times here at Zebtab. We’ve also launched in the last few days, which like IWOOT, is opening up new audiences for Zebtab. We’ve traditionally aimed at the sports / mens market, with properties such as Maxim, Setanta Sports etc. Man Utd, which launched last month , has been very successful, with 25,000 downloads in the first month. The Champions League certainly helped!

    Cool roundup Mike – great to be able to see what everyone has been up to!
    I’d noticed the Huddle smoked turkey & coleslaw cholla rolls too – should get down there soon! has also been keeping busy, with the site growing steadily and we have also launched the first few social features on the site a couple of days back, allowing the Providers to collaborate and communicate. We have many other exciting features in the pipeline, to allow formation of virtual teams and co-bidding on projects (i.e. a virtual teams of Providers will be able to bid on projects).

    On another note, we are quite keen to meet up in person with other London-based startups and anyone else interested in internet startups – we have the next Geektails event on the 17th of June; details here: (we have just moved it to from the FB group)

    Obviously there’s lots more going on here, but this is what keeps me going each week…

      I have been with Triond for the past 1 year. I hope if I had got such suggestions, it would have been much more helpful for me. I learnt it the hard way. Hope the new comers an easier time.
