Dear Inbox – browser plugin lets you send real greetings cards as easily as email

No matter how much technological progress we enjoy, there’s always a group who prefer to keep things real, and maintain things the way they used to be. So for instance, we still have our vinyl lovers, and those who prefer a good radio play to a night out at the nearest IMAX. Hardly surprising then that email and snail mail might get together too one day.

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…

Hidden From Google – listing all the censored ‘people’ results on search engines

The recent ‘right to be forgotten‘ ruling from the EU has definitely allowed some very…um… interesting people to avoid public attention in Europe, and even more so now that Bing has just joined the party. The result has been as expected, various people removing their search engine listing for things like court cases and adverse newspaper reports, which means of course they can then move on and either reform, or do their stuff again to other unsuspecting victims.

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
