Mygazines – Mygazines offers you a friendly intuitive platform for reading your fave magazines online. The site is broken down into 3 types: Magazines, Articles and Mygazines. Magazines are full issues, find your fave or discover a new one. I discovered Harvard Business Review, I was quite surprised as I never imagined that Harvard would publish a magazine, it turns out it is quite interesting and not boring as I expected. Articles – Every magazine has many articles, instead of having to sift through many magazines, you can simply search the articles directly. An article that caught my attention is Social Networking Is Not a Business – If you are into business models and monetization, this would be an excellent reading for you, if not – do you own search. Mygazines – So what are you to do with all these articles you like? Archive them into your own personal magazine arranged just the way you like it. And if you feel it is good enough, share it with your friends or with the AllMyFaves Team. We love interesting stuff.
Kidmondo – Kidmondo is a comprehensive online baby journal (track development, keep a diary, indicate important milestones, add photos and videos) that allows parents to chronicle their child’s life. In addition it offers the ability to turn your online journal into a beautifully printed `Kidbook‘. Pricing for the Kidbook begins at $28.00 for a softcover book. I personally think it could have been a bit cheaper, as with MyPublisher you can receive a hardcover for 29.80$. It doesn’t really matter which service you choose, just do it. I think that in our digital world, keeping touchable prints of your loved ones is a must, it is for ever.
YouChoose – The presidential race is heating up, Sarah Palin has definitely spiced things up. YouTube has created a page which is dedicated solely to the last candidates John McCain and Barack Obama. I actually think it’s really cool YouTube hosts it, it is nicely in order and you have the chance to vote or respond. Let the fun begin, just remember that this circus show is limited, it ends November 4.
ESPN College Football – The 2008 NCAA football season, or in other words the college football season, began on August 28, 2008. Progresses through the season and will conclude with the National Championship Game in Miami Gardens, Florida on January 8, 2009. If college football is your cup of tea, then the ESPN college coverage is your cup.
Protect The Human – Protect The Human has probably been designed by some smart people, they understood that in order to create awareness, a good cause is not enough. Marketing, as much as it sounds absurd, is essential. The guys behind Protect The Human took the boring display of Amnesty and gave it a lift up, now it is displayed in a young and hip format. The content is still disturbing, however, by displaying it correctly it seems to be more effective. Do you want to know what is really happening in the world? Do you want to make a difference? For a start check Caught in the Crossfire.
FAIL Blog – A site full of stuff gone wrong. I am quite sure some of the pictures are manipulated, but it still is funny and definitely worth the visit. Someone had to catalog the huge amounts of ‘failure’ in this world. This is one of my faves, I couldn’t understand if I am welcomed or banned. For additional daily LOL check our new Humor Faveline.
Fivehumans -FiveHumans is a cause related entity – raising awareness to awful diseases that many people are too afraid or embarrassed to discuss. In addition, FiveHumans intend to donate as much money as possible to their not-for-profit partners. They have designated a charitable organization for every cause they support, which will receive a donation equal to 10% of the sale price of any related product. The shirts are well designed and as mentioned, are for a good cause. So, why not buy one or even two. Do you know what is the number one killer in the US?
SHOWstudio – SHOWstudio is based on the belief that showing the entire creative process, from conception to completion, is beneficial for the artist, the audience and the art itself. SHOWstudio delivers live fashion creation, as it happens, 24 hours per day.
Humanclock – Humanclock shows a photograph of the current time, with the photo changing every minute of the day (all 1,440 occurring minutes on Earth). Thus, you end up with a rotating picture clock sorta deal. Don’t skip this site, this is a genius idea.
Mr. Bounce – An enjoyable game with a simple concept. Bounce the ball along your platform, adjust the height of the ceiling, and collect all the neon-glowing balls in order to advance to the next level.
