Single Page Guru – awesome and deliciously easy website maker lets you create a stunning looking site in minutes

Making websites has definitely become more of a science than an art nowadays, what with the popularity of things like WordPress, Weebly and other site makers. But even with these systems there’s still a ton of work needed to actually make a site look good, as anyone who’s struggled with a WordPress theme will tell you.

Pocket lets you read, watch, and explore the web when you’ve got time to spare [Freeware]

Am I the only one who reads long form articles any more? I suspect not, and I guess also that like me, most people find it difficult to fit in this reading before their lunch break is over. Or I see something I want to read and email it to myself to read when I have the time. So I end up with fifteen emailed links to sort through at the end of the day. Pocket is an app that…

Fetch – grab and share just the text from any website or article in an instant via email

If you’re like me, you’re always finding cool stuff online which you want to send to friends and family. We use a neat Firefox addon to send web links instantly via Gmail but the problem is it just sends the link, so the recipient has to click through to view the content. Which is fine if they have an internet connection at the time, but not so good if they are out and about and don’t have access for whatever…

Forget.me – new service offers to remove you from Google search results

A new service has launched which aims to make it much easier for people living in the EU to make a request to Google to remove their information from the search results. This ‘right to be forgotten’, as it’s called, comes after a ruling by the European court which explicitly gave people this power over the information kept about them online.

Laundry Instructions: The App that Saves a Phone Call to Mom

Laundry is a high stakes game. One red sock in the wrong load will have you saying “pink is the new white” in no time. Sure, the instructions are on the tags but they’re not always in English. Sometimes they’re in that strange hieroglyphic language that only your mother understands. Laundry Instructions is the Android app that takes the mystery out of the wash.

Sure it makes ‘borrowing’ Wi-Fi super convenient, but it also makes it hard to sleep when your neighbors want to clean at 3 AM. But what if you knew where there were some peaceful places you could go in your city to chill out and recover?

GoEuro – the most complete travel search engine for Europe you’ll find

There are a lot of travel search engines around, most of which feature some mix of flights, hotels and car hire. And some of them are excellent like Hipmunk.com and Skypicker.com. But they do have limitations, and the biggest is usually the fact that they don’t offer alternative transport modes such as train, car or bus travel.
