What we need is something that helps us revise everything we do not want to forget. What we need is Headmagnet.

Save Your Bookmarks As Browser Homepage Thumbnails & Access Anywhere With SiteHoover

A startpage is the thumbnails view of our favorite bookmarks. It helps us find bookmarks easily. Opera was the first browser that provided a startpage feature; now in addition to browsers supporting it, there are entire websites dedicated to the idea.

Online startpages have the advantage of accessibility. A browser created startpage is only accessible from a specific computer whereas an online startpage can be accessed from anywhere. Having reviewed many startpage websites, I have observed that many of them are somewhat the same. Sitehoover, however, is one truly unique startpage website.

Tabzon: A Small And Easy In-Out Attendance Board For Offices

Different workplaces have different ways to mark an employee’s attendance. Sometimes a physical register is kept in which each employ signs in and out. Other workplaces use a fingerprint scanner or a code-entering gadget to mark attendance. Another way is for each employee to sign in via an email which can only be opened from the office.

All these solutions are effective in marking attendance but are not effective in finding out where the employee is presently. In other words, if an employee is absent, the boss does not have a way to find the reason of absence.

Cut MP3: An Introduction To Full Fledged Online MP3 Cutter

Before I started using torrents, I used to download songs from websites like MP3Raid. When I downloaded these songs, I transferred them onto my cellphone for later listening. However some of the songs were quite long and I wanted to cut them short. For this I used an MP3 editor to cut out a portion of the song. Even now when I have to extract a portion of the song for later listening or to set it as my ringtone, I use the MP3 editor which I have installed on my computer.

LetterGenie: Easily Generate Letter Templates For Your Contacts

While emails are taking over physical letters, the conventions of business letters’ formats are still being followed. An official email often looks exactly like a business letter. The person who sends out these emails is often an assistant and the system works something like this: the assistant opens up a predefined template and then fills out the receiver’s details each time. Since it is a business letter, there is absolutely no room for error on the assistant’s part.

With TheLetterGenie, the boss no longer has to rely on the assistant to get the job done right.

PocketSmith: Online Calendar To Manage & Forecast Cash Position

People with a lot of money hire financial advisors to monitor their spending and point out the rights and wrongs in that spending. The money that is saved from correcting the wrongs is then invested into potentially profitable ventures to benefit the client.

However the percentage of people who are that rich is considerably low. Most people are like me, not rich enough to hire external help. We have to manage our own finances and catch our own mistakes. Doing this single-handedly can be quite a task; an extra bit of help can end up benefiting us a lot.

PocketSmith is a free web service and one of those “extra bits of help” which we can employ to manage our finances. It basically acts as a calendar which we can feed our expenses in and which can forecast our future cash positions.

How To Organize & Manage All Your Online Passwords Securely With Mitto

I often point out how I own multiple social media accounts. Not only do I own multiple (many) social media accounts but I also own accounts on numerous websites. As a professional blogger I have reviewed many websites (I have lost count of exactly how many websites) and sometimes I need to create an account on the site to test it. When I like what the site has to offer, I keep the account active and use it every now and then.

People like me who own so many accounts face problems when it comes to password management. Keeping the same password for all our accounts is a terrible practice and should not be followed. But having differing password is not always easy to remember. Various password managers let us store our password on our computer but this means that we cannot have access to our passwords from another computer. Therefore online password managers are the best ones to go with.

The backgrounds of websites usually are textured with a pattern that is essentially a repetition of a simple image. This simple repetition can attribute lesser page loading times. Many site designers try to work out ways in which these patterns can be created to look visually appealing yet use only simple images. Their job has now been made much easier with an online tool which I have recently discovered.

Anybody who wants patterns created out of specific image [or images (plural)] can do so in a few simple steps using Repper.

A New Way To Gather And Organize Your Online Content With Weblist.me

Today I have got a great tool for bloggers and social-media enthusiasts. This tool is Weblist and it can help share online content more conveniently. Normally when we share multiple links related to the same subject we create a list post and type in details about each link. But with Weblist, the entire process changes and becomes easier.

To illustrate how Weblist exactly works, let us suppose I have to make a list related to iTunes. I get the URL of Wikipedia’s iTunes entry and the URL of the download location of iTunes on FileHippo. I paste these URLs in Weblist. If we already have a list of URLs present in a text file, we can copy the addresses from there, click on the “Paste Multiple URLs” button which and paste the addresses in the window that appears.

Share Flickr, Picasa, Gmail & Facebook Photos All In One Place With Showzey

As a professional blogger having accounts on multiple social media sites is very beneficial for me. But for average computer users the multiple social media accounts pose a significant management problem; more specifically, photo management.

Our photographs and images are scattered across all our social media accounts. Suppose we want to share one picture from a network A on network B. To do this we normally log in to account A, save the picture, then upload it on account B.

Thankfully with Showzey, that lengthy process no longer needs to be employed.
