When Pinterest first launched I signed up and checked out the Social bulletin board service. After a couple of months I pretty much stopped using it. Not for any particular reason I just did. As Pinterest has grown into an 800 pound social networking gorilla I have moved even further away from it. I’m not sure why, maybe it has something to do with all the hype, and the current user base demographic. Either way, Pinterest does offer a service that I like, saving of content. Thankfully Brooklyn-based designers Fictive Kin have come up with a Gimme Bar which, in my opinion, does Pinterest one better.
Gimme Bar The “Internet Sham Wow” or “5th Greatest Invention of all time” according to the developers lets you the user grab text, images, and videos from the web, then store them in a single place, all from a bookmarklet in the bookmarks bar at the top of your browser. Watch the video below, or just click to this link to go to the site. Oh and just like Pinterest, Gimme Bar has an iPhone app for all you mobile hounds.
