F**k This Site – the web is an interesting collection of experiences. Fuck This Site’s goal is to put the spotlight on the sites that contribute to the digital landfill. Marketing crapware, death by pop-up models, horrible stock photos, frustrating interactions, being too clever for their own damn good – give them all the middle finger and place them in a list with their peers.
Rent The Runway – finding something to wear for a night out can be a pain, so it can often be nice to get someone to send something to you. Rent The Runway is a site where you can order clothes, wear them to your event, then send them back the next day where the company will take care of the dry cleaning for you. You can order additional sizes at extra cost.
Curious – is a site containing lots of free lessons on various subjects. Each lesson consists of a video tutorial, attachments, exercises, and discussions. Examples of subjects include languages, arts and crafts, health and fitness, and sports. Most lessons are free, or only $1. Signing up gives you $20 credit. As well as being a student, you can also apply to be a teacher on the site.
Perpetu – After you die, imagine your Facebook profile turning into a wall of spam – no one can log in and help you remove them. It becomes “an uncared-for grave with weeds growing on it”. Or your Flickr photos. Or your Twitter feed. Perpetu helps you to manage your online assets when you pass away, preserving or deleting accounts, and making sure final emails are sent to loved ones.
VisaMapper – is an interactive map which tells you if you need a visa to visit a certain country, and if so, when and how you need to apply for it. Simply choose your nationality from the drop-down list provided, and the map will change color accordingly. Then find the country you want to travel to, and see if you need a visa to go there, and if so, how you need to get it.
