RingShuffle brings temporary phone numbers to your iPhone

I love my Google Voice number, as it gives me a lot more control over who can reach me on the phone. Unfortunately there are instances where I hate even giving that out, as I don’t want some people being able to contact me in the future. For those instances, there is an awesome free app called RingShuffle. Install RingShuffle on your iPhone (sorry, no Android version right now) and create an account. This consists of entering your phone number,…

Use custom firmware on your router to track bandwidth usage

Have you ever wondered just how much bandwidth you use on a monthly basis? If you don’t do a lot of downloading or streaming, then it really shouldn’t be much of a concern. However, if you’ve got two devices in the house that seem to be always streaming Netflix to them, along with downloading games from Steam to different computers, you might get concerned about it. If your ISP doesn’t offer some sort of way to check your monthly bandwidth…

An interesting approach that people are taking is instead of completely switching to one, they’re finding ways to integrate Facebook into Google+. One such way of doing this is with SGPlus. If you head to the SGPlus page, you can download their browser extension, login to Google+, and grab your photos…

Learn a new language with Pronunciator

When you watch Sci-Fi movies, it’s always interesting to note that almost everyone speaks English, even the aliens. It makes you wonder if there will come a point in time where we all do settle on a common language, and which one will be picked. But even if that does happen, it certainly won’t be in our lifetime, which is why it’s good to pick up a second (or even third) language. If you’ve been thinking along the same lines,…

iOnRoad lets you know when you’re too close to another vehicle

When we’re driving on the highway, we can have a hard time paying attention to the road. This is mainly because we don’t really have anything to look at, plus it’s easy to become sleepy or get distracted. What with children in the backseat that need taming, the blaring radio, and the occasional phone call. It would take no time at all to be on someone else’s bumper and not even know it. If you have an Android and experience…

EggDrop looks like a mobile mashup of Craigslist and eBay

When you’re looking to buy or sell general household items online, it seems like there are two main places to do so. The first is eBay, the other is Craigslist. The former is good for ensuring you get top dollar for something that might not have a lot of potential buyer (or finding something rare). The latter is a great way to do business with local people, and not have to pay transaction fees. Well it looks like another company…

Timerrr is a virtual timer for your computer

There are plenty of times when you need access to a timer. One of the most frequent for me is in the kitchen. I have a bad habit of leaving something for a few minutes, only to get completely distracted by something on the internet, and come back in about five or ten minutes too late. Thankfully, as long as you’re near a computer, you’ll never lose track of time. Just use Timerrr. Timerrr is a very simple webapp that…

WeTransfer takes the hassle out of transferring files online

There are a number of ways to transfer files between two people on the internet. The most simple is email, though you are severely limited on the size of your attachments. There are other services such as Dropbox that you can use, but I’ve come across a new one that has to be the easiest I have seen. WeTransfer is about as easy as online file transfers get. Just go to the site, upload a file (or multiple files) up…
