Amvona – Amvona is a great resource for cheap photo equipment but lets face it most of us don’t really buy tripods on a daily basis, so in order to spice things up Amvona has created an excellent photo discovery application that allows the user to be in control by fine tuning the search results. Seeing the world through the eyes of others is a beautiful experience, controlling it just makes it better. Enjoy peeking through the lens.
Blogged – It is said that there are more than 70 million blogs worldwide. Blogs are considered as one of the most interesting and powerful opportunity for communication. Blogged.com has reviewed, rated, and categorized more than 200,00o blogs by human editors, so you won’t have to experience the frustration of filtering through blogs that are either spam, outdated, or irrelevant. You’ll be able to find quality blogs that you would have unlikely found through a traditional blog search.
Drop.io – A true story, I had to send a client of mine a presentation, unfortunately the presentation was quite heavy and his mail service declined it, so I sliced the presentation into 3 – what a waste of time. With Drop.io sharing has never been easier, just upload the file to Drop.io, receive a link and thats it, send the link and the recipient will be able to download it by accessing the url you sent.
Comedy – Laughter not only makes you feel better but the use of humor can be a major tool for insight. George Burns says it best: “You can’t help getting older, but you can help getting old. Chronologically, the clock is going to keep on ticking for all of us, but if we take a lick of humor, we can prevent a hardening of the attitudes. If we savor humor, humor can be a lifesaver.” Laugh baby Laugh!
My Damn Channel – This site is not another YouTube Wanna Be, it won’t accept user-generated video uploads, instead it is based on professionally-produced shows devoted to music and comedy. I find it quite refreshing. Are you Horrible?
Pingg – Throwing a party? Pingg provides customizable invitations and a social network within each guest can interact before and after events take place. Don’t underestimate the power of a funky invitation, marketing a party properly will result in a higher attending rate. Rock this Party!
Wedding Wire – Getting married? Looking for wedding vendors? WeddingWire is about simplifying your wedding planning, find all your wedding needs in one place whether you are looking for information about a specific vendor or comparing between vendors. NOT getting married – just choose a wedding cake.
The Class Connection – Study! Learn! The Class Connection is a free educational tool available to students and teachers at both High Schools and Colleges around the world. The site allows users to be part of online academic ecosystems centered around individual classes. Users are able to create educational content, organize existing school materials, and communicate about academic issues.
Writers Mugs – Bob Dylan said “A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do.” The site is full of inspiring quotes, unfortunately I couldn’t find my fave quote – Less is More but still Writers Mugs offers an impressive collection. As I see it, one can learn so much from quotes, it is the best form of inspiration.
Bubble Shooter – Make combinations of 3 or more bubbles to make them disappear and score points. The more bubbles you shoot at once, the more points you get. You win if all bubbles are shot.
