Pin A Quote, a Startup that allows you to add text to Pinterest

Pin A Quote has been launched earlier this month by Web strategist Adam Rotman from Ontario, Canada. Pin a Quote lets you highlight any text on any Website that you think would make a good “pin”. Once you’ve highlighted the text you want, you may click the “Pin A Quote” bookmarklet & add in “Who said the quote.” It then converts the quote to an image, allowing you to pin the same on one of your boards on Pinterest or any other Social Network you want. Before you do that, you can also preview the same.

Not only that, Pin a Quote also remembers the source of the text to enable your followers to return to the Webpage where you 1st found your quote. Details such as the identity of the person who wrote the text, etc, can also be recorded.

But before you can do all the above, you need to install the bookmarklet in your Browser. It works in almost all. You need to drag the icon to your bookmarks tab to install it. …& its Free.

They were thus able to take control of a fully-patched Windows 7 machine.

Pwn2Own, held every year at the CanSecWest security conference in Vancouver, tests hackers to find vulnerabilities in four Web Browsers — Microsoft Internet Explorer, Apple Safari, Google Chrome & Mozilla Firefox. The contest is based on a points system.

Measure your Influence on Pinterest using PinPuff

Whenever new Social Networking Sites come Online, it is now a trend to have some Startups that add some kinda value to it.

So, following the success of Pinterest, there’s a Startup now called PinPuff that acts as a new social scoring system & allows fans to calculate their Pinfluence - a new measure that checks the influence and reach of design lovers on Pinterest. PinPuff does not have any direct relation with Pinterest as in it is not owned or a subsidiary.

Like the other influence measurement agency, Klout, PinPuff ranks users on a 100-point scale. The metrics for the image-based site are similar to those on Facebook or Twitter. But the people behind PinPuff do not like being called a “Klout for Pinterest” as that it just one feature in their Startup, they claim.

In addition to the score, Pinfluence also estimates the dollar value generated by the pins. Companies can use the platform for managing campaigns on Pinterest or for tracking high-performing Pinterest users.
