Hatnote – Listen to Wikipedia’s recent changes feed. The sounds indicate addition to (bells) or subtraction from (strings) a Wikipedia articles, and the pitch changes according to the size of the edit. Green circles show edits from unregistered contributors, and purple circles mark edits performed by automated bots. You may see announcements for new users as they join the site.

Sexual Offenders – allows citizens to share information they have about criminal sex offenders, exchange resource links and post comments in a social style community. Daily updates with links to state and county government sex offender registries, sheriff’s offices and news of sex crimes and related prosecution.

PriceGeek – is a search engine where you can find the current market value for “anything”. So for example, by entering “iphone 4s 32gb”, it will tell you that the current market value is on average $300. It collects information from sites such as eBay and monitors the finishing prices. You can get information for the US, UK, Canada or Australia.

Moviefork – is a site that lists, catalogues, and embeds YouTube videos which are full length feature movies, uploaded by other people. You can break down the selection by decade, genre, and movie score, and when you click on a movie poster, that film will be embedded on the page. The site breaks no laws because it is only listing what others have uploaded, and they give a link if anyone wants to file a copyright violation with YouTube.

TypeWonder – helps you to test web fonts on any website on the fly. Enter the site URL, and when you click on a font, you will be taken to that website with all of the text changed to the font you chose. This will allow you to see right away what a font would look like on your site without having to actually change anything. You can go back and choose another font until you find one you like.

    The PriceGeek search engine is a total nonsense. I tried to find out how much my 2010 Ford Escape SUV is worth, and the result came back: $1000. Sheer nonsense. $28000 down to $1000 in three years? Gimme a break!
