Deezer – On April 2007 Blogmusik decided to pause their service in order to “legalize” their draft negotiating with the rights holders. Negotiating has ended and now we have a free powerful legal online music machine. The concept is simple: Deezer offers free music and on the same time, it is to pay artists and all beneficiaries rights by sharing advertising revenues. The collection is vast and as a true music lover I found almost all my searches. Other Similar services (that we like and of course are legal in their way) include: SeeqPod, Songza and BoomShuffle.
YouTube Video Awards – It was just a matter of time before the YouTube medium joined the old media awards (Oscar, Grammy, MTV, Golden Globe, Emmy and our fave but not old awards – The Crunchies). Soooo the people have spoken and chose the best videos in various categories, ranging from best creative and on to best comedy. This is simply enjoyable, especially the Human Tetris. If I was the only voter, my fave video under the Instructional category would have been – Google Docs in Plain English.
Taaz – Visualization is the most intuitive way of communication, have you ever stumbled a profile (facebook, myspace or a dating service) that doesn’t have a pic, maybe, but I am quite sure you haven’t found it appealing. So if pics is our way to conquer the world – choose the best or create the best. Taaz gives women the opportunity to â€œtry onâ€ the hottest makeup and hairstyle looks from the convenience of their desktop. Just upload your pic and create the perfect smoky eye or a dramatic ruby-red lip. Are you a man?

Writers remark – Don’t take this activity too seriously, we don’t want to turn into a makeup fraud community – see the Dove evolution Makeover photoshop.
Dumb Little Man – Jay White is a “Dumb Little Man” that has one passion (nearing addiction), finding a better way to live each day. Jay doesn’t believe there is a master of everything nor does he claim to be one. However, he enjoys sharing his wisdom with the world, the pitfalls to watch for, and the lessons learned. Dumb Little Man is much more than what the title conveys, it provides a handful of tips that will save you money, increase your productivity, or simply keep you sane. I enjoyed 10 Ways to Remove Clutter from Your Life, I just hope I will actually implement his tips. Go Little Man!
Worth1000 – This site is mostly 2 things. Itâ€™s a daily image manipulation contest site and itâ€™s also a gallery of all the entries ever produced for these contests. Whether or not you want to play or just browse. A very good starting point when visiting this site is the Galleries page. The Galleries contain only the best of the site, so most of the images are quite amazing. In addition they have great tutorials – learn photoshop tricks and photo techniques. Just to sum it up, even if you don’t want to play photoshop tennis, you will love browsing the photos. Who is invisible?

The Amnesty supporters are outraged by human rights abuses but inspired by hope for a better world, Amnesty strives to improve human rights through campaigning and international solidarity. You can help make a real difference by becoming a member or supporter of Amnesty International. Make a difference!
Get In Her Head – Men and Woman simply don’t talk about things on the same wavelengths, as much as we would like to communicate on the same level we simply are different. Even though the site is under a feminine name it is actually for both sexes. The site offers a practical tool that takes the guessing game out of business. Each partner enters the sites and on her/his own spare time describes exactly what they like. How happy will you be if you received what you actually want? But not all is non spontaneousness, if your mate didn’t choose they will help you find the right way to surprise.
