Rec.fm – People share information about their preferred products on the likes of Facebook and Twitter, but don’t do so very often because they don’t want to bug their friends with advertising.

    My bad Nat Jay, we seem to be having some weird issue with the last two ‘cool websites and tools’ editions. The same comments appear on both articles. We are investigating it.

    I like “Daylight Hours Explorer”. Apart from the rest of us, it’s a useful learning tool for geography students as well. i remember when I had trouble with latitudes and longitudes back in school. I’m glad kids these days have more interactive tools to make learning fun.
