Trick #1: See Your Face In 20 Years

You may not want to try this -- but if you're really curious and want a good scare you can see what you'll look like in 20 years. All you need to do is upload your photo. These folks use advanced face detection and morphing technology to predict what your face will look like in 20 or 30 years.

Try it with a photo of your worst enemy too - that's even more fun.

Trick #2: Elevator Music While You Wait

Are you sitting at your desk drumming your fingers waiting for a big download to finish -- or waiting for just about any computer process to complete? If these little daily aggravations get you uptight then we have a pleasant solution for you.

When you run this neat little app it will sit in your system tray and play elevator music automatically when you do something that requires you to wait. Or, you can double-click the icon anytime to start playing music.

And the best part is that this little one trick relaxation pony is on the house.

Great Place #1: Great Stuff If You're Moving

Getting ready to move? If so, this is a "must visit" place. Although there are dozens of websites offering free moving quotes to their users, this one has been around since 1994 and has deep connections with the moving world and uses those connections with 500 moving companies to give you the information you need for a smooth, easy relocation.

You'll get access to a ton of moving tools and a library of over 150 moving "how to" videos. And when you're ready you can get competitive quotes for local moves, long-distance moves, interstate moves and international moves. In addition you can access small move specialists, self-storage solutions, truck rental centers, specialty movers and even auto transporters.

Great place to get you moving.

Great Place #2: Travel The Entire Known Universe

Want the ultimate thrill ride? This one takes you through the entire known universe in 3 minutes. The folks from the Hayden Planetarium put together this video that starts in Tibet and zooms you out through time and space until you reach the edge of the known universe. And then they bring you back.

The trip takes you through a universe that includes the precise location of every object ever observed in the sky. From quasars to pulsars to black holes to nebulas -- it's all there.

Climb on board -- and be prepared for a jaw dropping experience.
