Cool Websites Nobody Knows About
The following websites warrant a close look simply because they rate so darn useful! In fact, you might just want to tear this article out of the paper right now and put it up on your fridge -- because I know you'll need it sooner or later! * Hard to Find 800 #'s * Let's face it. When you want customer support, it seems like the phone number you need is the last phone number on earth you can find, especially a toll-free support number. Enter www.
HardToFind800Numbers.com to the rescue. The tag line on the site sums up the service, "You keep them in business. Yet they hide from you.
Until now." Boasting 800 numbers for Microsoft, Amazon, eBay, Paypal and more, the site makes it easier to avoid adding insult to injury by paying per-minute for the privilege of waiting on hold. * Rentometer.com * Rentometer.
com enables you to compare rental rates on one property or apartment against rents in the surrounding area. The site uses a "mashup" with Google Maps to show not only what other properties rent for, but their exact locations relative to the property you entered. The site rates especially useful for homeowners weighing renting vs. selling their property and need a fast thumbnail sketch of rental rates in the immediate area. Oh, and if you currently rent, the site can give you an idea whether your rental rate puts you at the top or bottom of the local scale. * DaFont.
com * Despite that fact that everyone typically only uses 2 or 3 different fonts (Arial and Times New Roman for me), a whole world of cool and useful fonts exists online. Log on to DaFont.com, browse through over 7,000 different fonts separated by category, and then spice up your greeting cards, web graphics and more. Most of the fonts work with both PC and Mac, but the site assumes you know how to install a font on your computer. For PC, simply unzip the font in your Windows /Fonts/ directory.
For Mac, consult your help files. * OldVersion.com * Ever upgraded to a newer version of a software product and almost instantly regretted it? Log on to OldVersion.com and download one of over 170+ common software programs with upgrades that left people less than impressed. For example, need to test your PDF file on an older version of Acrobat Reader? OldVersion.com lets you dial back the clock all the way to Acrobat Reader 2.
0 (along with versions 3-7). * Any Chat - Anywhere * If you like online chat, I'll bet you maintain more that one ID on multiple online chat services. Well instead of installing several different chat software programs or even installing any software at all, you can use www.Meebo.
com. Meebo.com enables you to chat on MSN, AIM, Google Talk, and Yahoo! with just your web browser and makes a great way to chat either from either home or on the road. * Convert File Formats * Zamzar.com makes it easy to convert files from most popular image, document and video formats into another. Previously you had to scour the web to find an app to convert each type of file, but Zamzar.
com will convert files up to 100MB in 4 steps at no charge (and my tests on Word docs and PDF files proved very promising). Well worth a look before you buy a piece of software just to convert a single file from one format to another. Copyright (c) 2007 Jim Edwards.
