Trick 1

Send an E-Mail - By Voice!

This is neat! These folks convert your telephone voice into emails, text messages, reminders, lists and appointments. You can use this service to create text-based reminder e-mails to yourself or messages to pre-set individuals or groups. In a car it's a lot safer than thumb typing a message on a Blackberry or calling each individual person.

Simply enter your phone number and e-mail address and set up a contact list - and Shazam - you're in business. Just call the toll free number -

say the name of your e-mail recipient (or say "myself") and record your message which gets converted to text and e-mailed to your recipient(s).

There are other clever bells and whistles - and the price is right. It's on the house!

Trick 1

Keep Track of the Cussed Cap Locks Key!

Have you ever typed six lines of text before you discovered that the Caps Lock on your keyboard was on? Some folks are often tempted to cuss when this happens - and we'd bet it has happened to you. Here's a little trick that will alert you when you have accidentally turned the Caps lock on. This works in Windows XP and a slight variation will get you set up on other operating systems.

Open the Control Panel ("Start" and then "Control Panel"). Click "Accessibility Options". Click "Keyboard". Check "Use ToggleKeys". Click "OK" and close the Control Panel.
Now you have a private butler who will ring a little bell when you accidentally hit that Caps Lock key.

Saves a lot of cussin'!

RECS Radio


Listen to The Station You Want With a Click!

Here's a great place to easily find and play your favorite AM/FM radio stations and to browse and discover stations from around the world. You can search by location and type of programming.

So far you can play US stations from Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, San Jose, and Washington, DC. Each city features dozens of the major broadcasting stations (and some you didn't even know existed). Many international locations are also featured including Beijing, Hong Kong, Israel, London, Shanghai, Taipei and Tokyo.

Just pick your favorite news, music or talk show and these folks whisk you off to a new land with one simple click!

Trick 1

Get Insiders Travel Information!

Sure you can search the internet for your next flight by the best fares or shortest flight but until now there has been no place on the Web to determine the quality of your trip - factors that include not only price and speed, but also comfort and ease.

This great place allows you to obtain a best/worst ranking for your list of possible flights. Rankings based on each of these factors helps you wade through the hundreds of flight options on the market. They analyze speed by the number of stops, travel duration, on-time stats and security wait time. Comfort factors include: leg room, aircraft type, aircraft age and historical load factor. Ease of flight factors include: connect time, routing quality, lost bags rank and gate location.

Although this great place is still in Beta, it looks like the day of the automated travel advisor is close upon us.
