Mango logo Mango – The most promising language tutorial site. The site is very interactive, as you can click words to hear them repeated. There are lesson courses for a range of languages, offering Spanish, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Mandarin. It’s all for free.

Propoller Logo Propeller – From the creators of Netscape a social news portal programmed by you—the audience! Its kinda like digg, maybe even better, but that is for you to decide.

Spiral Logo Spiral Frog – Download songs legally and free, from a number of labels (Universal seems to be the biggest backer at the moment) with a potential catalog of 700,000+ tracks. What is the catch? Well there is always a catch, users are required to view advertisements while each track is downloading. It is worth the try.

Mint logo Mint – Today you can handle all of your financial transactions online (Bank account, credit card, student loan, bills etc.) however in order to do so you have to visit and login to each one of them. This is a drag and as well doesn’t allow you to see the big picture of your financial status. Mint is a one-stop shop, access all your accounts from one page. In addition Mint will remind you of bills to pay and how to save money. My mother used to tell me “Money, Money, Money ….. Control it wisely”. Mint won the Techcrunch40 award. – so I assume not only my mom thinks money should be controlled wisely 🙂
