Amazon Prime Video

Amazon Prime Video

Amazon’s video streaming service may not be as elegant as Netflix’s, but if you have Amazon Prime, it comes as part of your package.

Amazon’s deep pockets are also seeing the company signing exclusivity deals with companies like HBO and the BBC, meaning their library of shows is just getting stronger and stronger.

We’re talking about the kind of films you’ll see played at festivals like Tribeca, Sundance, or SXSW.



Spotify Web Player Screenshot

Spotify continues to be the leading service on PC or mobile for streaming any music (and plenty of podcasts), whenever you want.

Apple Muaic-3

iTunes has grown to dominate the music industry, comprising a huge portion of music sales across the planet.

By installing’s “toggler” onto, say, your Spotify account, the service offers accurate recommendations for other artist’s you’re likely to enjoy.


Pandora Screenshot

Pandora (US users only), is a great tool for finding new music. It’s a “free personalized internet radio”. Simply add a few of your favorite artists and the station will start playing related music that you’ve probably never heard before. Pandora is a great tool, and hopefully it’ll stay that way for years to come.


Genius Screenshot

Genius is a gigantic community of music lovers. This is where people turn when they want to discuss and deconstruct a song, or a specific lyric. It’s where artists come to explain their music to the world. It’s certainly worth checking out.

Just start uploading your own shows!


The Conversation

The Conversation Screenshot

For in-depth analysis on a huge range of topics, you’ll find it hard to beat The Conversation. The site only accepts commentary and editorials from professional academics. What I love about the site though, is that it will often publish several articles on a single subject to offer different perspectives.

Online Privacy


Tor Screenshot

Tor is not technically a site, but rather a “browser [that] contains everything you need to safely browse the Internet.” Tor makes it very difficult for attackers to figure out who’s talking to who, much less what they’re saying by using computers as a massive obfuscation network to bounce encrypted messages.

Terms of service are dry, bland, unreadable screeds of legalese not intended for human consumption. TOS;DR takes terms of service and digests them into something succinct and meaningful.

Craigslist screenshot

We all know Facebook. It’s the most used social network on Earth and by now it’s hard to get along without it (despite the bad publicity recently). Facebook is invaluable for organizing events, keeping in touch with old friends, and sharing bad political memes.


Twitter Moments Screenshot

Twitter seems facile on the surface. However, it turns out that forcing succinctness eliminates a lot of the cruft that pops up on traditional social networks, and the platform has proved a great way to keep up with businesses, friends, and celebrities.

    Next time you update the list: from what I can tell, the Microsoft Office web product is not (or no longer) free. There is a free one-month trial but after that you have to subscribe at $99.99 a year! And that explains why I use, and (one or more of them for at least 5 years).

    MakeUseOf is a fantastic site. It has become one of my most favorites. I am a Linux and FOSS enthusiast and MakeUseOf always has great material about these interests. The greatest part is that is equally true of any of my other interests. Then it's topped off with great content about stuff I did not realize would be of interest. Did I mention the fantastic MakeUseOf books. Quite possibly, the best site ever. Seriously.

    That was an insightful list! I'm definitely going to try some of the services listed here that I didn't know about. My addition: the quality of translations given by Bing translator is better that the one offered by Google's (in fact, the Spanish translation in the screenshot is wrong!). For learning platforms, I would also include ; for weather forecast, I never found a most accurate one than the Norwegian service, (; and for reading, is my place to go. I like not only the summaries they make, I also really appreciate the curation and reading lists they do, it has introduced me to authors and topics I doubt I would have found otherwise

    I quite like the list. Just one addition I would like to suggest. Learning section, ipassio should be added. is an emerging website on learning Indian classical music, musical instruments, dancing, sketching, yoga lessons, language and cooking.
    The ipassio platform enables teachers with proficient technology support for course and student management that ensures a hassle free teaching experience. All the courses are taught as small private online courses (SPOC) with video chatting between the teachers and the students. So, the students can ask questions at any point of time in the learning. Be it enrolment of a student, course structure, class strength, scheduling, rescheduling or collection and disbursal of course fee, every aspect of a teacher’s journey to provide students with top class training is taken care of. So, is soon going to be one of the best online hobby learning sites on web.

      Almost lost me with the Indian classical music but is rather impressive. I was not aware of its existence so thank you for enlightenment. There is nothing wrong with Indian classical music other than it seems so impossible to learn to play. Indian classical music only serves to remind me that I am not so accomplished a musician as I want to believe.

    Nice list, but I disagree with the Snopes recommendation. They are run by well known liberals and while certain stories are easily provable as fact or fiction, others are not and these folks always side with the progressive/liberal ideology in those instances.

    • davea0511
      March 29, 2015 at 12:15 am

      Isn't that the truth. A number of times I've seen Snopes brand something "false", which becomes obvious was actually true when you read what they have to say about it and why they called it false (generally because the question could have been misleading). Every time they do this it errs on the left side. All these fact-watchers (quackwatchers, bias-watchers, etc) , but who is watching the watchers? Nobody. Get's pretty ugly when you dig into these organizations. "Politifact" for example, run by a liberal newspaper ... wins awards for accuracy and whistle-blowing .... awarded by other liberal news organizations. It's such a crock.

    lol'ing at Al Jazerra being a news source. What exactly does anyone trust coming from them? In reporting facts to viewers they are consistently at the bottom with CNN, NBC, MSNBC, CBS & ABC (all received less than 30% fact rating). Couple that with each of their respective ratings with regard to injecting bias/opinion into news stories, Al Jazerra, CNN, NBC, MSNBC, CBS & ABC all receive a rating of 55% or higher for injecting bias/opinion into news stories. Not much better, FOX, which received 53% fact rating & a 37% bias/opinion rating.

    Bottom-line...they all have a bias and leave it to you to verify to ensure you are receiving accurate, fact based information surrounding news stories. Sad state of our news media today. Opps, forgot 538, their ratings are worse than CNN/Al Jazz club. 538 is so bad they received a "heavy political bias & opinion" rating and a less than 15% fact rating.

      Hi Doug,

      Very interesting stats. What news sources did get respectable ratings?

      It's scary and sad. Even a fictional show about telling the truth in news can't survive today.

      February 4, 2015 at 4:07 am won the Pulitzer for news service fact-checking. More news stations and journalists respect them above all others. Fox News is rated near the bottom of every category when it comes to providing accurate information. Since you did_not_provide the name of any evaluating organisation, I'll assume, for now, your percentages are driven by someone's own bias. Your? Neuroscientists have now identified the types of personalities that watch the more biased networks, especially MSNBC and Fox. Too bad, because these same people are more driven by brain circuits to fabricate info to support their political agendas. More research is on the way.

      Funny Dr. Ronaldo, which rates Fox news low is run by Tampa Bay times, a left leaning news organization (is there any other kind, other than fox?).

    I use many of the websites mentioned. would surely try the ones that I have missed.

    a really good website for comparing Software packages for a specific task :
    You guys forgot about XDA , Tech Forums, also, many of the "Learn code for free" websites are not mentioned.

    another one which can be useful to check if a website is down just for you or is it for all :

    Google books also deserves a mention for a quick searchable database of books, parts of which can be read online for free. is a good website for Latest innovations in Science.

    another website that needs mention is Skillshare, a really nice website which does exactly what its name is, share skills, worth checking out atleast once., 9gag, buzzfeed, also can be included under Fun Websites.

    ans yeah, the list is just awesome, most of the websites mentioned are very efficient in doing what they are for. nice job guys.

    I am familiar with a lot of the sites listed and agree they provide a great service for their expertise. The one that I was surprised not to see was "Gizmo's Freeware" or It really provides a lot of software comparison and information. A place I always look to first when checking for the latest and greatest free things on the internet.

    RottenTomatoes is kinda crummy. The way the ratings are calculated, if every critic thinks a movie is slightly above mediocre, it gets a 100, and to us it looks like the best movie ever. Metacritic is much better, since it generates and actual average of scores, and gives a more accurate assessment.

      You should have figured out before you started writing that one thing does not constitute a list. Really funny joke though.

      One thing that could be included in "News" if you're a sports fan is The Sporce. A free daily email newsletter that covers everything in sports. Takes five minutes to read and it's pretty damn funny!
