KidZui, the web browser that’s built for kids, is today launching KidZui 5.0, featuring more functionality for parents and children to discover and share the Internet together.


With one click, children can now send KidZui-approved videos, websites, and pictures to their parents with the browser’s new built-in ‘KidConnect’ capabilities. Parents can now also easily send content directly to their children to return the favor. Essentially, KidZui aims to maximize parent and child computer screen time as an opportunity to connect and converse with each other through shared content online.


KidZui says it currently boasts over 2 million games, websites, photographs and videos, and that all of them are approved jointly by parents and teachers.


New in version 5.0 is that parents can now use Facebook to digitally hook up with other parents and to connect their kids with one another, providing an opportunity to create friendship and community online through the social network. KidZui, which is available for Windows, Mac and as a Firefox plugin, will continue to provide weekly activity e-mail reports to parents about their apparent kids’ interests.


KidZui has also recently launched a kid-appropriate video destination site dubbed ZuiTube.


The company, which is backed by approximately $10 million in funding, claims more than 1 million children and parents have registered for the service since its launch in 2008. KidZui’s audience is said to have grown 300% in the past year, mostly through word of mouth.


Still according to the company, children have spent more than 5 million hours using the KidZui browser, visited over 100 million web pages, videos and photographs, and shared over 4.4 million items with each other. Yours on it yet?

Over A Year After Android Launch, ShopSavvy Finally Comes To The iPhone

ShopSavvy was one of the best early Android applications. It launched in October of last year after winning one of the initial Android Developer Challenge top prizes (when it was still known as GoCart). But despite the success it has seen on Android, one question remained: When would it be available for the iPhone. Today, it finally is. Developed by the guys at Big In Japan , ShopSavvy is an app that allows you to use your device as a portable barcode scanner. You point your phone's camera at any barcode and it will read it, do a product look up, and give you information about the product, as well as where you can find it online or at nearby stores and for how much. Obviously, something like this is a window shopper's dream. ShopSavvy was one of the best early Android applications.

Lindsay Lohan Breakup Confirmed by Lohan, Locksmith, Police [Gossip Roundup]

Farewell, last season's Suri Cruise fashions. Goodbye, Amy Winehouse's bathing suit. Adieu, humanoid version of Lauren Conrad. And so long, LiLo and SamRon's fairytale romance. Lindsay Lohan confirmed her split with Samantha Ronson and insisted the decision was part of a very healthy and mature effort to " focus on myself ." Upon hearing this, Ronson changed her locks and discussed a restraining order with police, so confident was she in Lohan's ability to turn productively inward. Lohan promptly had a run-in with the police . Who would have imagined such a messy breakup for this model relationship? Courtney Love's lawyer, on her client's drug-fueled plunge into broke-ness: ""Courtney noticed the money was gone when there wasn't any left."
