GasBuddy – The USA consumes 400 million gallons of gasoline every day. This red hot demand for gas has pushed gas prices to record highs. Gas prices often vary significantly, in many areas fuel prices can vary by 20-30 cents per gallon or more within a very small area. This makes it even more important for motorists to shop around to find the best deal on fuel. GasBuddy provides you with the tools you need to find the lowest gas prices all around the US and Canada. On the contradict try running your car on water, you will not only save on gas but you will reduce emissions and prevent global warming. Drive carefully!
PanOye – We all love photos, my personal photo faves are panoramic photos. Panoramic isnâ€™t a regular photo, it is super special. Panoye is a place where people can upload, organize, tag and publishare their panoramas. In addition users can comment and rate the beautiful panoramas, and embed the code onto their site or blog. Similar panoramic sites that have been featured on our weekly faves include: GigaPan, and ViewAt.
Pixsta – The conventional way of searching for images involves typing in a few keywords and waiting for results. Pixsta takes a fresh approach to the challenge of image search and makes it visual – you see it, you click it. A great feature is the ability to search visual other sites such as Telegraph, Elle UK, Gala.de, InTouch and Fabulous. The only downside of the site is that at the moment their results are limited to European sites. Does this kind of visual search sound familiar, well it kinda reminds me of AllMyFaves. The future is visual, the future is here.
SomeTimesDaily – Sometimesdaily is an off-beat, interactive variety show exploring life’s themes through the inquisitive eyes of Amanda Congdon. I am not sure that even Amanda knows what her site is about but 2 things are for sure. 1. The intro to her videos is quite cool. 2. She is Hot. Amanda, if you are reading this blog, please clarify your statement to the world.
IBeatYou – “Anything you can do, I can do better; I can do anything better than you..” IBeatYou is a platform where people can compete with anyone else in the world in anything; publicly for the world to see, or privately amongst friends. Do you feel you are a real winner? Well who are you to decide, let the “public” choose the true winner, back up your bragging by being voted as number one in your field of expertise. My fave competition is Who is wearing the Dopest Shirt, it seems that a handful of shirts are products of the cool Threadless T-Shirt company. Didn’t have enough stupid competitions? Check Bragster another beating site. just beat it!
On Stage – On Stage is a fun place to hang out! Here you can sing and record your favorite songs karaoke-style as well as write and perform your own comedy sketches, poetry and stories. It is quite simple, all you need is a computer(microphone and webcam will upgrade the experience) and a creative spirit, and On Stage we’ll take care of the rest. Record your own video performances and be a star. Try karaoking one of my fave songs – 99 red balloons.
A Spam A Day – I always thought that spam is wrong, that spam is the lowest form of penetrating our privacy. However Ozi took all these spams we receive and turned into a wonderful thing, he turned into art. Ozi turns each day’s most outrageous spam-mail-subject into a cartoon. So when was the last time you flew her to orgasmic wonderland;-).
The Rookie – It looks like 24, it sounds like 24, it is directed by the same director(Rodney Charter) of 24 but guess what it isn’t 24. So what is it? “The Rookie: Day 3 Extraction digital shorts chronicle the further adventures of American Counter Terrorism agent, Jason Blaine. Set within the same high-stakes world as 24, Blaine races against the clock to try rescue his boss, who is kidnapped by a nefarious drug cartel.” Enjoy!
LovePixel – A pixel is the smallest piece of information in an image. Pixels are normally arranged in a regular 2-dimensional grid, and are often represented using dots or squares. Jason Huang, a designer and illustrator from Taiwan has created an amazing pixel city. This is a MUST SEE, it is much better than the horrible million dollar homepage.
