1. Tell Me: 1-800-555-TELL (8355). Try it! Free weather, sports, stock quotes, traffic reports in some places — and more. I don’t use it often, but it can come in very handy. Say you you have no quarter for the pay phone and you left your Nokia at home. Just call TELL ME, toll free, say “PHONE BOOTH,” and make your free call.)
2. QB-Search. There are several good search engines I use — Google.com is often the one I find most useful — but why ever bother going from one to the next to the next. I always start at QB-Search and get the 1st page of hits from all the search engines, on one page. (I could get the first 2 or 20 pages from each, but never seem to need more than those first hits.) QB-Search is part of Quickbrowse.com (www.QB.com) and I own part of it. Every time you use it free, I get 50 cents, half of which I pay in taxes and the other half of which goes to the Democratic Party. Be warned.
OK, I’m kidding about that last part. I only get 30 cents. But why would anyone go to Altavista or Yahoo or Googol or any of the others, when you can just as easily go to all of them at once? Bookmark it, Danno.
