No Excuse List – It’s very easy to procrastinate and find excuses for not doing something. So sometimes it’s good to have someone give you the motivation you need and the resources required to stop you from making excuses about why it can’t be done. Enter the No Excuse List, an exhaustive page of links to skills you can learn, including art, computer programming, cooking, DIY, and much more.
Shotclip – Home movies are fun to make but a lot of them are absolutely terrible and boring. Shotclip is a web service which helps you to make great home movies with their video templates. You can edit the video using their online video editor, and then share your final creation with social networks.
Let’s Loop – helps to connect music fans so that everyone can discover, share & listen to music together. On Let’s Loop, you can listen to millions of songs, albums & playlists with YouTube, Spotify, Rdio & Deezer, discover events with Songkick, explore artist pages with help from iTunes, Last.fm & The Echo Nest and share everything with your Let’s Loop followers or seamlessly to Facebook & Twitter.
Save – Save is a web service which allows you to remotely download files to your Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, or Skydrive account, without having to download it first to your host computer. This is especially useful if you are surfing the net with a smartphone and the file you want to download is not supported by your phone. Simply place it in your cloud account for later viewing.
Fogpad – lets you create and edit documents that are encrypted on your computer before they are saved in Google Drive, preventing Google (or the government) from accessing your data. But it encrypts text files only and requires that you create the file on the Fogpad.net site. The company claims that their 256-bit AES encryption means that not even the NSA will be able to see what you create.
