Website of the Day: Now Do This

Posted By Tech on Aug 4, 2008 at 2:02PM

Done and done is one of my favorite — and overused — lines. So when I came across Now Do This, a to-do list application website, I couldn't help but give it a whirl. So maybe you can't see your entire to-do list like with Remember the Milk or sticky notes on your iGoogle page, but it is plain and simple. Just go to the website, enter your tasks and to-do items in order of priority, hit save, and it'll show you the first one on your list. Click done when a task is completed and it'll move on to the next one, just like that. Done and done.

Website of the Day: PopPhoto

Posted By Tech on Aug 1, 2008 at 1:01PM

Photography is one of my favorite geeky hobbies. Cameras are a gadget that you can waste time with and then have something great to show after you're done playing with it (unlike so many others!).

If you've already mastered looking great for the camera, and want to tips for getting behind it check out PopPhoto!

Though PopPhoto is a one-stop resource for reviews of cameras and lens, galleries, and buying guides, the how-tos are my favorites. Learn how to capture panoramas, make the elusive "ring of fire" and find oodles of photo-editing tips (trust me, once you learn how to Photoshop your zits away you'll never look back)!

Website of the Day: Wordle

Posted By Tech on Jul 31, 2008 at 11:01AM

Isn't it great when a website can take your words or images, and miraculously transform them into an aesthetically pleasing piece of artwork? With Wordle, you can enter a list of words, and it will generate a "word cloud" which shows your words in a creative format. Have fun switching up your text with a new font, color scheme (you can even custom design your own), and layout. Once you get your words exactly the way you like them, you can save them to a gallery, print them or share with friends. Just make sure you copy your word list, since Wordle can freeze and you have to start over!

Website of the Day: CraftStylish

Posted By Tech on Jul 30, 2008 at 2:01PM

Even if you're not crafty enough to design and print your own fabric, I bet you can appreciate the fact that others can — especially if you chill on geeksugar because I love crafty geek stuff!

CraftStylish is a new site where not only can you check out the creative handmade goods from other crafters, but you are also encouraged to share yours.

It's a fun, low-pressure place to say "look what I did!" with your hands or sewing machine and get fun, encouraging feedback from other appreciative users. CraftStylish has a — dare I say it? — social network vibe — but without the former classmate chitchat vibe.

Website of the Day: Graspr

Posted By Tech on Jul 29, 2008 at 2:00PM

I love helpful how tos that teach you how to get crafty, stay connected, or even become a cooking goddess a la Yumsugar. But what if you are more of a visual creature and need to see how things are done first before you can grasp the concept? When reading step-by-step instructions isn't enough, head on over to Graspr, the video "how-to" network!

You can find almost any how to under the sun (and a lot you didn't expect) on Graspr, from how to drive a stick shift to how to shred on the guitar, and even learn a few self-defense moves while you're there. Plus, if you specialize in finding hidden levels in Super Mario Bros, you can submit your own how tos and share your secrets with the world!

Website of the Day: Kuku Klok

Posted By Tech on Jul 24, 2008 at 2:00PM

For those of you who need a good wake-up call, or easily lose track of time when surfing the net, I've got just the thing — Kuku Klok! It acts as a virtual alarm clock, so you can set a time and choose from various sounds including cockerel, classic clock, electronic, and slayer guitar. It will even work if your Internet connection goes down, so you don't have to stress about it working or not! And, it's totally free!

Website of the Day: StumbleAudio

Posted By Tech on Jul 23, 2008 at 2:00PM

If you've spent time on StumbleUpon, then you know how it sweetly liberates you from your spare time, but it can also lead to worthwhile discoveries. Imagine then, if you could do this with music as well. Brilliant idea, right? Well, don't credit me, because it already exists: StumbleAudio.

StumbleAudio has a pleasing, coverflow-like interface, and like StumbleUpon before it, you just keep telling it what you like and don't like, and clicking stumble when you want to try out a new song.

Website of the Day: WalletPop

Posted By Tech on Jul 16, 2008 at 2:45PM

All this recession talk has me scrambling for cheaper laptop bags (the horror!), relishing gadget-price slashing, and finding more online resources to help me make smarter choices with my money. When I hunted down a personal finance site a while ago, I was surprised that I only really found Mint, which I loved.

Now WalletPop has jumped on the money organization bandwagon, and even though I love Mint, I say the more, the merrier.

WalletPop integrates financial calculators for a variety of things, and a sale aggregator as well. I might make it through this recession after all!

Website of the Day: SavvyAuntie

Posted By Tech on Jul 11, 2008 at 1:00PM

Not a mama yet, and can't really justify all that time you spend on lilsugar?

SavvyAuntie is here for you when you have little ones in your life that don't exactly belong to you, but through godparenthood or aunthood, you love them as if they were your own. But even though you love them that much, it doesn't mean you'll know exactly what to do when your beloved nephew poops his pants in your lap, or what to get a 3-year-old girl for her birthday.

SavvyAuntie helps with this kid stuff from the aunt's perspective, filling you in on what to know and do with with your beloved young ones when you're lucky enough to be around them.

And once you do figure out which direction the baby wipes go, SavvyAuntie encourages you to post your own pictures and advice!
