    Some of these are awesome, thanks! I really got a kick out of phone spell, even though my number doesn't spell anything cool. Subways maps is awesome too, especially for anyone who is on the road a lot.

    I'm not sure if this is in your directory, but one of my favorite sites/softwares is ooVoo Its a free video conferencing service for up to six people at once. I've been using it for work the past couple months and have found it to be great.

    Maybe some of your readers would be interested in it.

      I am not much of a video conferencing guy but I like oovoo as well. We have reviewed several times, both in directory and blog.
