webplatform.org is really one of the best ways to learn proper coding. I have taken dozens of coding classes on web design and I still go back to webplatform to see what are the latest standards. I enjoy the collaboration with others and the docs on how to structure your web content is priceless.

I have been watching crackle ever since sony took it over and I have to say it has much improved. I would have given it a meh awhile ago but now crackle really does deliver fun entertaining content. Because they are owned by sony you do get real hits like Men in black and you don't have to worry about downloading a virus or malware like on other sites that advertise free internet tv and movie downloads. Crackle is really free internet tv and online movies.

They do advertise original content but I haven't really got into any of their original shows. I have watched sports illustrated swimwear models show over and over though at work :)

Give this a try if you are interested in watching movies online for free. Connection speed is great and their video quality is so much better than what those free internet tv websites claim to deliver.

First let me say I know nothing about the actual software of this company. I just wanted people to see how easy it is to set up a daily deal website. We see thousands of these popping up everywhere and it is hard to say which ones are legit. Apparently you too can set one up just like groupon for a couple thousand bucks and next weekend you are up and running. Scary. But kudos to this website for making anyone the next groupon

Good place to start the new year off right and lose some pounds. Info on this site on weight loss is pretty good, though I am considering HCG---this is a good first shot at losing my weight after the holidays

I just learned about the starbucks reward program and I cannot believe I have been missing out on this. You get free coffee and lots of discounts throughout the year if you just bother to get a starbucks card with your name on it and it is free. If you go to starbucks more than just a few times a month it is worth it.

I just gave Yelp a Meh review and wanted to say if you are looking for a really good place to eat and impress a date, go with these reviews. Why trust a bunch of fake reviews or possibly even the restaurant owner himself writing reviews on yelp? I pretty much trust Michelinguide.com OR my facebook friends reviews of sites.

Netflix has greatly improved their selection of on demand download content in the recent months. I was going to cancel but they really stepped up their game to compete with apple and is worth the 9 dollars per month.

I will agree that their downloads are a bit easier to navigate than cnet. No frills, just the simple facts about a DL. Their advice is pretty good too. They do have quite a bit of ads nowadays but I suppose they have to make some money to keep this site alive.

I view this as the kayak of online videos...in a similar way they have organized many online videos for people to either buy, rent or watch for free. I was looking to watch season 1 of smallville (who doesn't want to watch kristin kreuk) and it gave me several options on where I could download it or watch for free.

Just a quick note to tell all of my fellow sitejabber friends that LOTR MMO is now FREE for everyone to play. They are adopting the strategy of giving free memberships to everyone and then those who want to upgrade can pay the extra few dollars a month for the goodies. Good concept and I expect other games to follow suit soon. They clearly need a facebook version of this game to really mainstream.

Many people debate about whether to go for droid or iphone, let me break down why I think android will win out in the end.

1. Free tethering. Use your droid phone to get internet access on your laptop
2. Free wifi hotspot.
3. Google voice. One phone number for the rest of your life. The same way we can use gmail to aggregate all of our emails, you google voice can aggregate all of your phone numbers. People can start having multiple phone numbers for cheap. Don't want to give out your real phone to someone, you can give them special numbers that you don't always need to pick up.

Pretty legit site that sells wow gold and they are a pretty big company despite the lame URL name. I bought gold from them and they actually delivered it within 24 hours. Prices are a little steep but you do actually get the gold. Very professional as well. You might want to also check IGE.com for their gold prices.

Gotta hand it to these people at booyah they have done what foursquare has not accomplished so far in their social app for the iphone and other mobile phones. They created a game where you really want to visit the locations and stores so you can buy the real estate just like the old fashioned monopoly game. Stores of course want people to visit them and with their GPS location based system they really know if you are there, unlike foursquare.

Finally a Blizzard Diablo knock off that is actually fun to play and cheap. I have seen over the years dozens of companies trying to rip off diablo and make a clone game that is fun but this company pulled it off. Amazing game...really..simply amazing. I highly highly recommend it and you will be playing for hours. The only thing missing is multiplayer. If you have ever played diablo, stop reading this and download the free version of the game and you will then be buying it within minutes.

I need a vday present for my girl and I found this site. I do like these types of sites more than the daily deals as they give you more time to figure out what you really want to buy. Prices are rockin but I am not sure of the actual quality from a girl's point of view. Would like to hear what other people have to say about the quality of the silver and gem stones. I don't want the 925 silver or whatever that is too look shoddy.

I think I am more of a fan of daily deal sites that have a product focus than the million sites that now offer me a massage at 50% off. I like them more because the product itself has value and you can instantly see how much it costs. The services have more mysterious value and the business owners do this at a loss so they can upsell you..which is always awkward

Nice site to be able to print your very own magazine. Only 4 bucks per issue so that is a pretty good deal to be able to basically start your very own publishing company with a high end magazine for clients or customers.

Roku has been around for quite some time in the AV world and anyone who subscribes to mags like HD vision, sound and vision, etc has heard of them before. The rest of the world will have no idea what Roku is. Now they are looking to go mainstream with a $60 set top box that hooks up to your TV and converts it into a streaming media player ala apple TV. Probably will have similar services like netflix, hulu and the like but it will also be more friendly about watching video files that apple doesn't support. Cheap at $60 but now that apple TV is only $99, it will still be a tough sell. I think their box is great, but they might be a year late to the show.

I have taken a look at many scooters for my father and I will say the Jazzy scooters are really well built and IMO the way to go if you are looking for one of these things. They have a very wide selection based upon needs. My dad still likes the outdoors and misses the hiking experience. Jazzy has a 4 wheel drive ATV scooter which is actually fun to drive yet still meets insurance standards for payment

They have regular scooters as well, but I have less experience with those and there are many places that make scooters for that purpose.

More and more apps are using sms text messaging to cell phones as a way to add functionality to a service or platform. Their prices are so very reasonable and I can see many developers using this soon. I was working on an app that sends a warning to a users cell phone when the freezer temperature drops below a certain threshold ( important for freezing vaccines and other medical storage) and having that feature is something that would make the app 100X more useful. Adding that feature using this api is easy and cheap and it is just a matter of time before this really catches on. Take a look at their prices too...dirt cheap.
