Fwd: ZoomNews from Ai Squared: Cool Websites

[From the ZoomNews from AI Squared]

Cool Websites

Image of a smiley face with sunglasses onZoomText user Kathy Kalaluhi sent in a bunch of websites that she thought other ZoomText users would find interesting and helpful. We liked the idea so much that it's become a regular "column" in ZoomNews! Below are her suggestions and if you'd like to submit any websites for the next issue, please email them to Becca at!
  • Farmigo - this site puts you in touch with local farmers and farmers markets so that you can buy fresh and healthy produce in your area. It gives you locations of where you can pick up orders such as churches or schools. If you find a farm in your area that takes orders, you can place orders online.
  • TuneIn - an online radio station where you can tune in for local stations. It is not necessary to register but if you do, you can receive added benefits such as setting your pre-set channels and searching for music or programming according to several categories.
  • HelloFax - an online fax service that lets you send signed documents, add signatures to emails, and fill out forms.
And a new category of sorts: "Best fruits in the orchard" - the best Mac apps for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad! Some of them are available on the Android platform as well.
  • Dictamus - this was voted business app of the month for May in Smart Computing. You can record anything and it has its own voice activation program which surpasses the lady who comes on the iPhone. You can even rewind and fast forward.
  • MileBug - helps you track miles that you can then deduct from your IRS income tax. Seems ideal for people who use their vehicles for business purposes. There's a free Lite version as well.
  • eBay & PayPal Fee Calculator - helps sellers calculate all the fees such as shipping, eBay fees, PayPal fees etc. that will be deducted from your selling price on items you list. Works for both auctions and buy it now options.
Thanks to Kathy for these great suggestions!
