Trick #1: Get a Human on the Phone

Tired of dialing toll free numbers and searching endlessly to get through to a human who can help you? These folks take this bit of craziness out of your life.

Just visit this great place and do a quick search for the company you'd like to call. Enter your phone # (they say they will never disclose your number to anyone -- not even your mother!). As soon as they get a human on the line your phone will ring with a living breathing person standing by.

Great time saver.

Trick #2: Supercharge Your Browser

If you use Internet Explorer to get around the web you'll like this add-on for IE 7. It adds lots of extras to make your browser easier, more useful, secure and customizable.

This neat addition adds neat features such as tab enhancement, super drag-drop, crash recovery, mouse gestures, tab history, spell check, auto form fill, web page capture, ad blocker and many more.

And best of all it's on the house.

Great Place #1: Remodeling -- Cost vs.Value

Ever wonder what house upgrades will provide the best return on your dollar when the time comes to sell? Here's a great place to get the answers.

Every year Remodeling Magazine releases its "Cost vs. Value Report" where you can select your region and view various remodeling projects ranging from a deck addition to bathroom remodeling. The report provides you with an estimate of the job cost along with the added value on resale and continues by calculating the percentage of the cost recouped.

You'll find lots of other good information at this great place that will help with your remodeling strategic decision making.

Great Place #2: This is the Future

Think things are changing? One week's worth of the New York Times contains more information than a person was likely to come across in a lifetime in the 18th century.

By 2013 a super computer will be built that exceeds the computational capability of the human brain. By 2023 a $1000 computer will exceed the capabilities of the human brain.

These are just a few of the observations in this mind boggling 8 minute show at this great place. It'll get you thinking and is well worth a visit.
