Spinlets are new information-rich music widgets that let users place favorite artists' videos, links, pictures, MP3s, ring-tones, news and more on their own favorite sites (www.spinlets.com) while urFooz are the newest in interactive portable profiles that, like a virtual baseball card, depict the user's own avatar on one side and the user's profile, favorite pictures, music, links and videos on the reverse (www.urfooz.com). urFooz gives users the ability to share information across their favorite social networks with a single virtual identity card.
