Trick #1: You Are Now Fluent in 45 Languages

If you are an iPhone user this neat app called PeopleFlasher will blow you away. This new application turns your iPhone into a flashing machine that can be seen well across a room - or across the street. It's handy for hailing taxis, getting a waiter's attention and all sorts of other helpful and fun activities.

And, believe it or not, this gem will automatically translate your flashes into 45 different languages. No need to struggle with pronunciation - just hold up your screen and the reader will know exactly what you need.

Lots of other nifty bells and whistles - and to top it off, the introductory price is only 99 CENTS. Hey, that alone makes it worthwhile to get that iPhone.

Trick #2: Organized At Last

This was invented for those of us who have a hard time getting organized -and of course for those who are always looking for easier and better ways to stay organized.

With this great organizer you can take and save a note, dictate a memo, save a special web page, take a photo (and much more) and send or save any or all of them into this neat package that will keep you from coo coo in these hectic days. And the great part is it instantly organizes your materials on your desktop, your notebook and on your mobile phone (iPhone, Blackberry, Palm Pre or Windows Mobile).

You may have to put up with some ads - but the price is right - it's on the house.

Great Place #1: Here's A List You Want To Be On

There have been big shifts amongst the richest people in the USA and even though many of the rich are getting poorer it's all a matter of degree. The collective net worth of The Forbes 400 fell from $1.57 trillion to $1.27 trillion.

That doesn't stop this list from being a super interesting place to visit. The short bios and photos make this an instructive and fun read. You can follow stories of incredible inheritances and many rags to riches Horatio Alger sagas. You can even check out those who "almost made it."

Despite the downturn (or maybe because of it) we'd like to get on that list. It just got easier.

Great Place #2: How to Cook Anythinga

Ready to whip up a dish but not sure if you have all of the ingredients on hand? Here's a great little helper that will give you all of the information you need.

Just pick from any one of 14 categories (Chicken, pasta, seafood, beef, pasta, cookies++) or any of 56 sub categories (Marinara sauce, pesto sauce, cream sauce, seafood sauce, etc). You will be presented with a list of many ingredients. Simply check off those you have on hand and - Shazam! - you'll be presented with a list of recipes that contain those ingredients. And if there are critical ones you need it'll let you know.

It's on the house -- and you'll look like one of the world's great chefs.
