Elfster Secret Santa

Well, now that the holiday season is officially upon us (post-Thanksgiving makes it official), I found some helpful sites for all those secret Santa gift exchanges out there. Elfster.com and SecretSanta.com both take the pain out of organizing a Secret Santa gift exchange. You set up an exchange, and then list all the participants. It… Read more »

Turkey Day Gadget

I wanted to find some special Thanksgiving gadgets for today, but couldn’t come up with much in the quick Google search that I tried. I did find something pretty interesting, though I don’t know if it would be categorized as a gadget. It’s called Season Shot, and it’s basically shotgun shot made out of spices,… Read more »

This fun little game test how well you remember common logos from several prominent web companies. I got a 68.92%. See how well you fare a logo identification. (hint: Amazon is smiling… Read more »

I ran across a neat integration of maps (MSN Live Local) and community data last night. It’s created by a company called Fresh Logic Studios. In their… Read more »

Congress In 30 Seconds

Who’s tired of the political ads on TV? I know I sure am! Who would have thought I’d ever want the good ole ads for toothpaste and beer back… ads that are actually selling something rather than badmouthing a political opponent. With less than a week to go before the midterm election there has been… Read more »
