It's rare to see local news done right online. However, the Steamboat Pilot seems to be doing it. The site has a great local feel with a focus on what matters to the community. It doesn't try to overreach by covering a lot of national or international news which people can find elsewhere. The layout is also clean and professional (so many local online news sites are not). I've never been to Steamboat Springs but this site had made me want to visit.

There are a lot of ads on WebMD, but it still remains a reliable source for health information online. I don't google health information any longer because I don't trust most websites, but WebMD has real physicians reviewing content. Other good health websites are the Mayo Institute and Revolution Health.

Really the only international authority on fine dining. Zagats and Yelp are okay for casual Tuesday dinners, but if you want expert restaurant reviews, you should choose the Michelin Guide. I personally enjoy the New York and San Francisco guides. The only guide I have heard serious criticism of is the Japan Guide.

The nicest resort hotels in the world - Aman resorts provide guests with a unique experience, in which every bit of your stay feels steeped in luxury. Zagat rated Aman as the number one brand of hotels in the world in 2007 for good reason. But do not be deceived, every bit of the luxury you are looking for is built into the price. Expect to spend at least at $1000 a day at most locations. However, if you have the money, Aman is worth it.

Wealth of investment and business insight - Beginning and experienced investors alike can learn from Warren Buffett's wisdom in his annual letters to shareholders: http://www.berkshirehathaway.com/letters/letters.html

And also his Owner's manual: http://www.berkshirehathaway.com/ownman.pdf

You can watch a number of interviews with Buffett on charlierose.com -- http://www.charlierose.com/search?q=warren+buffett&searchTopic=-1&searchFromMonth=-1&searchFromDay=-1&searchFromYear=-1&searchToMonth=-1&searchToDay=-1&searchToYear=-1&searchFilter=warren+buffett&searchType=guest

Great web traffic measurement mash up - This very cool site allows you to compare a website's traffic on Compete, Alexa, Quantcast, and Technorati. This is particularly useful as none of these services on their own is especially accurate.

Yahoo Finance, get better please - I like Yahoo Finance. I've been using it since the late 90s. But honestly, it hasn't gotten much better. No innovations, no cool new features or analytics. Still the same junky, simple interface. Terry Semel, for $100M a year you think you could work on improving this product offering? Does anyone know of any better, free portfolio management tools out there?

I haven't purchased the DVD from this site, but if you live in the US or Europe I would be careful. This site appears to be based in India. DVDs made in China or India often will have regional settings that make them incomparable with DVD players from the US and Europe.

Forget Bing and Google, I find Kosmix's search engine to be more useful than both. It pulls useful data from a number of sources including forums, wikipedia, how-to websites, and others. It also suggests related searches that I often find helpful. Admittedly, I don't use it more than Google, but I do use it whenever I am really researching topic.

The Economist is the best source of news analysis anywhere. I read the Wall Street Journal to learn what happened. I read the Economist to understand why its important. The website is not that well designed but I tend to read it more often than the print edition (because it's more convenient) but both are well worth the money.

After the Wall Street Journal, I find Charlie Rose to be one of the best sources of information on current events. His interviews with world leaders give more insight into what's going on in the world than any other website on the internet.

Disneyland history could be interesting, but this site needs some design help...I'd appreciate more pictures and less text.

I travel a lot for business and have long legs. I won't choose a seat on a plane I'm unfamiliar with unless I've checked it out first on Seat Expert.

Nothing better than The Wall Street Journal free on your Blackberry - I used to spend all my time writing emails on my Blackberry. Now I spend all my time reading the Wall Street Journal. This free application allow you to read the full text of all WSJ articles on your handheld. It's great. It's fast and has great customer service (mine was broken, they fixed it within 24 hours). The only negative is that you cannot email yourself or anyone else full text articles.

Maria Bartiromo is without insight and so is her book - Maria Bartiromo, CNBC's "money honey," hosts several popular shows on the stock-market watching network. She's entertaining to watch, she asks tough questions, but at the end of the day she lacks any real insight. This came through in her book, and this comes through whenever she is interviewed. It sounds mean, but I wish people would stop asking her what she thinks....

The new Wall Street Journal site design is horrible - Call me old fashion, but I do not like the new Wall Street Journal website design. I can't skim the headlines in a single column like I used to....

Best tech blog by a VC - Fred Wilson, a general partner at Union Square Ventures in New York, presents a forthright look at VC investing in the tech industry. Fred isn't brilliant, but there's not a lot of bull$#*!, and he's a decently interesting fellow. He posts on tech companies, the VC industry, music, and other random things of interest to him. Definitely worth reading if you interested in technology or the venture industry.

Forum Rankings - Useful list of the world's largest forums, sortable by topic, size, activity, and type of software. Who knew Gaia Online was the biggest forum in the world?

Dealbook is a good financial blog - Dealbook is a good way to get all the day's financial news in one email. Andrew Ross Sorkin has done well for himself.
