Misc. Ideas

Over the past few days, I have been bombarded with some great ideas. Maybe you could use a couple!
  • 10 x 10 - every hour 10 x 10 scans the most up-to-date RSS and news-feeds across the globe, ranked according to importance. It presents it in a visual 10 x 10 cube with pictures relating to the news stories. Along the right edge of the screen are listed the corresponding top 100 words, one for each image. When you click on the picture, it provides you with links to popular new stories relating to the keyword. Some of the sources come from ABC News, CNN, and MSNBC.
  • SnipSnip.It - Have you ever wanted a way to show a "snip-it" of a YouTube clip? SnipSnip.It gives you a simple way of doing this. Simply copy and paste the URL of a YouTube clip to the site, choose the start and end time of the clip, and it will generate a URL for your "snipped" clip.
  • PuzzleFast - is an instant puzzle maker. Although it does not give you as many options as Puzzlemaker.com, it is easier to generate word searches and crossword puzzles.
