WunderMap is an interactive weather map on steroids

What is it about the weather that’s so fascinating? Sure it’s nice to know whether it’s going to rain, but apart from that who needs to know the wind direction at 2.30pm? We reckon it comes from our primordial past when man worked with the elements to survive harvest panics and stuff like that. We also suspect that weather forecasting hasn’t really improved that much since the days when a Shaman threw some bones in the fire, but tell you…

Ask For Task points the way to a neighborhood friendly future

If there’s one good thing that may come from all the recent economic turmoil, it’s a return to some good old fashioned neighborliness. Back in the day it was usual for people to help each other out in their community, because you never knew when you might need a hand yourself.

Finish My Projects is a great way to recycle your cool ideas

Everyone gets a great idea once in a while, in the shower, while out with friends, maybe during a movie. But often the realization of that idea proves to be just too tricky or expensive or time consuming, and so the project languishes in the corner of a shed or your mind.

Family Leaf gives you a private family room on the Web

The massive scale of social networks like Facebook and Google+ is really astonishing in many ways. The idea that half a billion people can sign up to a single service and exchange phone numbers is, frankly, astonishing.

Bliss Control is a superb way to manage your social network settings

How many social networks do you belong to? At least one I bet. Well that’s all well and good, but what happens if you’ve signed up to a bunch of them, and you’re trying desperately to manage them, i.e. do things like change password, or email settings or your profile photos.
