Everybody hates having to copy and paste a link to a Google search? The URLs are often so long, that you can’t cut and paste the whole thing. If you’re having that problem, you should see the simple solution provided by Look.fo. With this site, you’ll be able to create simple links to Google search results, which are much easier to share through any IM client or Twitter. Now, when you want to share a Google search, you can tell your friends to just look.fo/(search keywords). I’ve been trying it out for sometime and it makes sharing Google searches a lot simpler.
This is one of those sites that seem so simple yet they’re very useful. You’ll be quickly drawn in to the site’s simplicity and high usefulness factor. When in doubt, just “Look Fo It”.
* Get short links for Google search results.
* Create as many short links as you like.
* No sign-up needed.
I tried Look.fo out with something easy like “TheTechTalker” and the site performed well. It quickly formed the URL (http://look.fo/thetechtalker) and the Google search results it returned were accurate enough for me to justify sending that to someone who wants to know more about TheTechTalker.com.
Similarly use http://look.fo/microsoft for search results of ‘Microsoft’. Also, for specific Youtube, Wikipedia and Dictionary Definitions searches:
Checkout Look.fo for easy sharing of Google Search result URLs. Something different or one should say – a twist in usual URL snipping service!
Tweet-SQL is a set of SQL Server stored procedures that let you work with the Open Source Twitter API just by writing T-SQL code. You can do things like:
* Get the list of people you’re following into a database
* Retrieve their messages into a table
* Analyze who’s following who, and figure out who you should be following
* Compile metrics about what’s going on out there
* Simple deployment.
* Simple GUI for configuration.
* Stored Procedures for configuration changes with TSQL.
* Over 30 procedures to interact with the Twitter API.
* Flexible ways to deal with resultsets.
* No unfair licensing restricting you to a single Twitter account.
* Free updates for 1 year.
To get started, you’ll need a 30-day eval copy of Tweet-SQL. It’s free to evaluate, and costs £25 at this point of time.
The Twitter API is pretty darned powerful, and it enables you to do things like:
* Find out who your followers are following, which might be people you also find interesting
* Find influential people in your Twitter network
* Get recap reports of what links have been sent out recently, or what hot topics are out there
* Get peoples’ updates without actually following them directly
* Build a web-based equivalent to TweetDeck, with multiple user functionality
Send.™ is a free, easy-to-use email encryption service. It is Simple, Powerful & Secure way to send Top Secret information via email.
I don’t have much experience of sending encrypted emails, but as Send explains in the diagram below, it seems to be a cumbersome process.
What does Send.™ has to say :
It’s not that there aren’t other secure methods to send an email… It’s just that they’re too hard to use. We think everyone should be able to send a secure email…and we all have better things to do than spend an afternoon installing and configuring an encryption solution.
We don’t require you to maintain encryption keys – Though we think the public/private key method works, we also think it was created for geeks and technicians.
Send is compatible with all email solutions including web mail – Anyone with a browser and an internet connection can use Send.™ and, unlike other available solutions, Send requires no software downloads or additional system configuration.
The service is easy to use – We created Send because the previous process for sending secure messages was too difficult. Our studies suggest that people will not send encrypted messages if the process is even marginally more difficult than normal. Simply put…security is important, but cannot impede productivity.
Using Send for delivering an encrypted message is incredibly easy. Here’s how it works:
1. On Sendinc.com, enter your email address, your recipients, a subject, your message, and any attachments (Max size allowed is 10MB) .
2. If this is the first time you are using the service, Send will require you to verify the sender address by sending you a confirmation message. You’ll also have to setup a password for using that account in the future.
3. Send your message
4. Recipients will receive the message and be required to open an attachment, which contains the encrypted message.
5. From the attachment, recipients click-thru back to Send, where they’ll also have to create an account.
6. Send decrypts the message and shows the contents to the recipient.
Simple enough! So start using Send.™
