MyItThings.com Partners With Clearspring to Offer the Web 2.0 Version of the Holiday Wish Lists

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 29, 2007) - MyItThings.com, an online magazine featuring user-generated content in a variety of pop culture subjects, including: fashion, entertainment, technology, body and home, announced today it has partnered with Clearspring Technology to offer a widget that allows users to link their wish list and virtual closet to any online destination supporting widgets. Just in time for the holiday shopping season, now users have an easy way to share their gift choices with friends and family.

With today's announcement, contributors to the MyItThings.com site can link their wish list and virtual closet to their social networks profiles, start pages and blogs, providing them an easy way to share their gift choices with friends and family.

"Not too long ago, holiday wish lists were scribbled on a piece of paper or for the more tech savvy -- done in an email," said Yuli Ziv, Co-Founder & Editor-In-Chief of My"It"Things. "Now, with the recent trend toward widgets, the social shopping industry is making the traditional holiday wish list more high tech and interactive."

The widgets are created using Clearspring technology, the leading provider of cross-platform widget services and are part of a growing trend within the social shopping industry.

"We are excited to see publishers and content providers utilize our developer's platform in a way that is creative and entertaining, but also has real value to the customer," said Hooman Radfar, Founder and CEO of Clearspring. "With an uptake in the social shopping arena during the Holiday season, the new widgets from My"It"Things Wish List really step up the game, and Clearspring's distribution service allows their widgets to be easily shared across the Web."
