Jango – So many Web radio sites are out there, the best ones are located on our Web Radio Faveline under the Home, Entertainment pages. Jango offers something new, a combination of music and community. Just type in an artist – and your first station starts playing right away. You’ll get the music you want, along with similar favorites of other Jango users who share your taste. Customizing your stations further is just as easy. Just add more artists and rate songs that you want to play more or less. You can also tune in to other people’s stations – and they can tune in to yours! In your player, you’ll see who’s listening to the same music as you, who’s listening to your stations and what your friends are playing.
SpeedDate – Are you single? Have you ever attended a Speed dating event? During the event men and women are rotated to meet each other over a series of short “dates”, usually lasting around 3 minutes. At the end of the night, you say which people you want to meet again and if the desire match, contact details are exchanged. They say it takes only three minutes to decide whether we will fall in love, remain friends or never speak again. Do it online, all you need is a webcam. Still confused, watch the vid.
Zilok – You bought a new projector, what shall you do with the Old one? The intuitive answer is SELL it on ebay – receive $200. Selling is not the only option, rent it. Zilok allows anyone, whether individuals or professionals, to rent or offer for rent anything in a few clicks! Think of Zilok as the ebay of rentals. Go ahead, make some bucks.
Why08 – The United States presidential election of 2008, scheduled to be held on November 4, 2008. This is a very serious issue, my father says that you must vote, if you don’t vote you don’t exist. I say Vote but Have Fun on the way. Why08 thinks the presence of political conversation on the web is serious. Although, all political conversation need not to be serious to be substantive. On Why08 you will find a healthy mix of the serious, the light and the in-between. May the best man/woman win.
Esfresh – Video killed the radio star, this is just one of the videos I adore. Esfresh allows me to create a playlist of all the music videos I like, all under one place. The search is very efficient and the results are perfect. Moreover you can discover new music by checking other users playlists.
Fix It Club – S%$t, the sink is leaking. S%$t, the electricity is off. S%$t, the zipper is stuck. The Fix It Club gives you simple step-by-step instructions for how to repair household appliances that break. Fix-It Tips, You can do it!
quarterlife – “My name is Dylan Kreiger and I often cry for no reason and then later it turns out that there was a huge reason that I wasn’t aware off and that scares the crap out of me. What is the life of a writer, and am I living it?” quarterlife is part of a trend (i.e Roommates) – short edited mini episodes that are broadcasted only online. quarterlife consist of 36 eight-minutes episodes that debut every Sunday and Thursday on myspacetv and a day after on quarterlife. The show is about a life of a 25 year old blogger. I can’t wait for the next episode. Enjoy.
Bunnybot – Why do we shop? Offline, shopping is often a fun, social experience. So why not make it online? Bunnybot offers a platform that makes online shopping a shared, entertaining experience between you and your friends and family. Black Friday is just around the corner, maybe online is your choice.
Protect Your Head – Protect Your Head offers 3D brain simulations that simulate how difficult it would be to perform successfully everyday social situations with a brain injury. Your brain is the most important organ, protect it!!!
Red Button – How do we hate that we are told NOT to do something. Red Button takes you to the next level of NOT. Don’t press the red button. 🙂
