Euro 2008 and bTT

We did not post information on this blog for a while and we would like to update you on our product development. We have been very busy in Spring with Web2.0 Expo, a WPF Lab at Microsoft, the development of new products and correction of issues in sobees.

On the product side, we released bEuro. It consolidates the best of the Web of Euro 2008 directly onto the desktop while offering an easy user experience. bEuro gathers in a single application videos from YouTube, photos from Flickr, blog posts and tweets related to the Euro 2008 soccer competition. It is available in English, French and German on our download page.

We also released a new version of bTT which can be found here.

You can read a review on Sarah’s blog.
