2011 Sites in Review, Part 2

As I stated last week, I annually provide links to all of the sites we have visited throughout the previous year at DoubleClicks.info.

Remember, if the site addresses are too long to type I have shortened them with bit.ly.  Here they are in their order of appearance with short descriptions of each.

  • Ccleaner use this application to keep your computer clean and running more smoothly.
  • Barnes and Noble the book store for paperbacks, hardbacks, Nooks, e-books and e-magazine plus. 
  • RocketDock an attractive and fun program launcher for Windows.
  • DropBox free cloud storage with auto-syncing, for your files and yes, use this link and I get some extra space, thanks in advance!
  • Windows Live cloud storage, email and many more applications for your online use.
  • e-Sword downloadable Bible for study, reading with commentaries and much more.
  • YouVersion an app that allows you to read, search and study the Bible via your smart phone or online.
  • Stumble Upon shows you categories you are interested in and gives you new sites every time you log on to read and learn about.
  • About.com use this site (among many others) to verify the truth about the Nigerian prince who needs your help and many other online scams.
  • Calorie King go to this site and find out more than you may have wanted to know about all the food you eat…including fast foods.
  • Endomondo Sports Tracker this is installed on your smartphone and then you can track many "workout" things such as your average speed, altitude, length of workout, distance, and other related numbers. Use it with Google maps and see the path you have taken.
  • Fix My Phone check out one way you may be able to resuscitate your drowned cell/smartphone. 
  • Craigslist a site for buying or selling things online; however, I am not at all fond of it. Read the original article at DoubleClicks.info and see why.
  • Help, I’ve Been Scammed check out why I am not fond of Craigslist.
  • WorldLingo Service free professional language translation online. They work in conjunction with Microsoft Office translations.
  • Toshiba Thrive in my opinion the best tablet C currently on the market…yes, including the fruit pads.
  • Netflix watch many movie and TV shows online. You can also order DVDs but you already knew this didn’t you?
  • Swype a smartphone and tablet PC typing program.
  • Skype allows you to call phones and other computers via the internet with the capability to have video along with your audio.  It is a free computer-computer and smartphone-smartphone service but for phone calls check out the rules on their site.
  • Android Market one of the several software sites for your Android phone.
  • Twitter.com, Facebook.com you already know what these are and if not, do not be concerned Google for them and read forever.    B-}
  • Connectify lets you set up your own Wi-Fi Hotspot.
  • PC Decrapifier will scan your system and suggest software you can remove which you most likely do not need. 
  • Ninite is where you can pick most of your favorite applications that you want installed on any computer you own.  Download a file to run on a computer and it will add those programs you picked. Quick and easy installs.

Please do not forget to go to DoubleClicks.info (oh, wait you are reading this here already) for the complete stories, along with many others.  This week and last only contained links I used during last year.  There are many other articles on the site and at DNROnline.com that had no links but some great information.

That’s all for 2011!  I look forward to seeing you in the paper and online in 2012.
