Flickr has done amazing things for digital photography. Before the creation of this fantastic service, photographers who didn't have an extensive amount of technical skills would e-mail their pictures to friends and family. As soon as Flickr hit the mainstream, more and more newbies, as well as full-fledged geeks, took their photo collections online. Thanks to this service, in a small amount of time, you can upload all of your photos, tag them, and organize them as you see fit. Flickr’s native navigation features are very helpful, but they can be taken even further. Flickrmap allows you to get a world map of your photos.By tagging your photos with a city and country name, Flickrmap will search through them, and then place them on a beautiful and robust Flash interface of the world that can easily be placed on your personal Web site. You can quickly zoom in and out of the map, and finding interesting photos for a particular region is as simple as it could be. A small amount of US$5 a year is required to subscribe to the site, but the creators seem flexible on the pricing issue. Of course, once you see what the map looks like, you'll realize why the money is well-spent. Flickrmap is a great way for world travelers to make their photos even more appealing.

Since the popular independent photo-sharing service Flickr was bought out by Yahoo, some of its disgruntled users have been looking for another site on which to share pictures, and 23 was the answer. It allows users to upload photos and share them either with private groups or the public, and the paid version has further features. The site includes links to trusted local photo shops, which can print images

These days, text and photo blogs are as hot as Web sites were in 1996. But some people are reluctant to post personal photographs to a blog that the entire universe has access to. If you're looking for a way to share pictures, text, and files with a select group of friends and family, look no further than Imeem. Imeem is not a Web site; it's a program that hosts content such as text blogs, photos, discussion forums, instant messaging, and file sharing. Once you create your online space with Imeem, only people you personally approve can see your content. Or you can relax the privacy rules and let a wider circle of people see your stuff--such as friends of anyone directly linked to you--or you can just open the floodgates to the whole world.

When you're not logged in to Imeem, your user profile and text blogs remain available to anyone who has permission to see them, because they reside at Imeem's site. Your photos stay on your PC, however, so they're available for public viewing only when you're online. And when someone else views your photos, the program stores copies of the pictures on that person's PC. As an alternative to renting space on a public server, Imeem works well--especially if you link to a lot of friends. Free.

Put a Filmstrip on Your Desktop

This year, don't let those digital images collect dust--do something interesting with them. No one can see your holiday photos when they're locked up on your hard drive. So try one of the new "personal broadcast" services that display your pictures in a scrolling filmstrip on the edge of your desktop. I've found two. Slide and FilmLoop.

Slide is unlike a typical photo-sharing service. Whereas most sites post pictures online for visitors to peruse in a browser-based photo album, Slide displays your photos in a rolling filmstrip that scrolls slowly down the side of your computer screen. The pictures are small and unobtrusive; but if you hover over a particular image, the filmstrip pauses and the selected image pops into a larger window for closer inspection. Controls in the window let you share the picture instantly--at its original resolution--with anyone via e-mail. (The images are stored locally and are always sent from your own machine.)

Slide's filmstrip routinely displays images stored throughout your PC; this can lead to serendipitous rediscovery of long-lost photos. If you like, you can organize photos into channels and invite friends and family to subscribe to them so that they can see your photos on their own desktops. You can subscribe to other people's channels as well, so at any given moment you may be watching a filmstrip of your cousin's best photos. Some Web sites have created their own channels: You can subscribe to's parade of gadget-related photos, for instance. Free.

FilmLoop I LOVE this one

FilmLoop is another free service. Like Slide, you can share your FilmLoop creations (called Loops) with friends and family. What's even cooler about FilmLoop, though, is that people who are sharing your Loops can collaborate with you by adding new photos and commenting on your images. Whenever anyone makes a change to a shared Loop, everyone sees the changes right away, without additional downloads or logging in to a service. It's quite impressive.

You'll get a hearty dose of Christmas cheer from a hilarious video showing the wildest holiday light show ever.

Electrician Carson Williams hooked up miles of computerized lights and synched them up with some rockin' tunes. (The photo at left is a mere hint of the spectacle.) You have to see it to believe it. The music is "Wizards of Winter" by Trans Siberian Orchestra. You really need PC speakers or earbuds to enjoy the full effect.

Anyone with a Gmail account and a Web-enabled phone can access Gmail remotely. Google said the service detects the type of device being used to access the mail account and returns message listings and e-mails in an appropriate format based on the size of the screen and other factors.

The service will also automatically synchronize Gmail accounts, showing messages viewed remotely as read the next time a user logs on from a PC, and will enable mobile users to open certain attachments, including text files in Office or in PDF format.

Yet another SUDOKU Online

Have you tried sudoku yet? I have to warn you, it’s gonna addict you as all those who read this site MUST know by now as this is the third online link I have posted.
The idea, in case you didn’t know, is to fill a nine by nine square that is, itself, divided into three by three squares. So you end up with three rows of squares, and three columns.
Now's where it gets dicey. You have to fill in each 3x3 square with the numbers 1 through 9. Each number must appear ONCE in each row across, and ONCE in each column up and down.

Some of the numbers are filled in for you already. You fill in the rest.

Trust me, it's challenging. And it's also addictive!

Play Sudoku ONLINE

Sudoku Rules

The puzzle is most frequently a 9x9 grid made up of 3x3 regions. Some cells already contain numbers, known as "givens".

The goal is to fill in the empty cells, one number in each, so that each column, row, and region contains the numbers 1-9 exactly once.

Each number in the solution therefore occurs only once in each of three "directions", hence the "single numbers" implied by the puzzle's name.

Google's transit trip planner

Google has debuted a test version of a service that tries to map out the most direct route for public-transportation users.

Google's transit trip planner, launched Wednesday, is currently limited to Portland, Ore., but may eventually launch on a global scale, according to its Web site.
The Google trip planner asks people to enter their preferred itinerary, such as location of departure and arrival, as well as dates and time of travel. The site then gleans all available information on public-transportation schedules to produce a trip planner.

The trip planner provides an estimated walking time to catch the nearest form of transportation on the desired route, which transit line to catch, as well as estimated traveling time. The trip planner also provides the estimated cost for using public transportation.

File hosting is one of those hurdles that most of us have to confront from time to time. You could just purchase a hosting plan to resolve the issue, but not everyone is willing to give up some cash in exchange for hosting. We love freebies, and that’s why so many free ad-supported services have sprung up over the years. Some are pretty good, while others are completely dismal. Have you ever tried to e-mail a file to your friends only to have it returned because the size was too big? I’m sure that’s happened to most of us. To resolve these hosting and e-mail conundrums, look into using something like FileFactory.
One of the fantastic things about this service is that you don't have to create an account to use it - you can just jump into FileFactory and reap the free benefits immediately. In terms of hosting, there is a 500M limit per file, but that should be more than enough for most people. There's no maximum download limit, and the file will stay on their servers forever as long as it is downloaded at least once in the past fifteen days. As if hosting was not enough, they triple the capacity with e-mail. You can easily send files up to 1.5G in size to the e-mail addresses of your friends! These e-mail files won't last forever, though. They're deleted from the servers after seven days or twenty-five downloads. Whichever option you choose, you're sure to get your content out to the people that want it.

I have just uploaded THIS rude little song that I know you will just love. PS Do NOT let your Mother-In-Law hear it

Reasons Not to Fly an Ultralight Plane Video

By Alice Hill

Most longtime readers now that I long to fly and own some sort of cool ultralight plane. I’ve covered personal helicopters and flying cars and everything in between, but today I found a video of an ultralight crash that definitely made me stop and think. The weird thing is how there is no warning, the guy is happily flying and then BOOM. Result: broken back, broken pelvis, punctured lung, and so on.
