The Story of Cosmic Machine, Eventbox, and Socialite

Milen, one of the founders of The Cosmic Machine, writes about the beginning phases of Twitter/Facebook software Eventbox, its acquisition by RealMac Software, and its rebranding to Socialite.

I looked at Socialite earlier this year. Reading that post today I think some of the things I wrote were unfair. Many of those shortcut problems have been resolved. You can also read Facebook comments in the all events view (but not the HUD, which is what I like). Still, Socialite feels too, I don’t know – heavy, but if you wish you had Twitterrific for Facebook then Socialite is your best option on the Mac.

Realmac wrote that they want to have Socialite 2 out before the end of 2010, so maybe things will be different soon.
