Jim’s WebLetter for 1/7/12

Hi-ya JWL readers! Here are a few places you should note, bookmark or otherwise check out in this week’s WebLetter …

Avast has been around for some time as an antivirus and anti-Theft software for personal computers. I use it for mine. But now they have expanded to Android devices including tablets and smartphones. Just head to the Android Market and download and install it for free. Here’s more about the program and screenshots to show how it works … https://market.android.com/details?id=com.avast.android.mobilesecurity

If you’re searching for software for your computer and you need a reputable site to find it, let me suggest Gizmo’s freeware. This place is loaded with the best freeware that is reviewed and rated to ensure what you’re looking for is what will do the job for you. At Gizmo’s you can also find out how to protect your online privacy, how to back up Windows 7 drivers, how to create custom Hotkeys for computer applications, and a lot more. Everything is categorized into easy to use pages on the site. They also list the best apps for iPad, iPhone and Android machines. http://www.techsupportalert.com/

If you’ve ever sold anything using Ebay, you know of the hassles involved and now they charge more for you to do business. Tinypay.me is also a site used for selling items. With Tinypay.me users can enter a brief description and their item will be listed in about sixty seconds. Unlike other selling sites such as eBay, tinypay.me is streamlined and easy to use. It is completely free and also has a charity program that can be supported by users. Users simply enter a title, price, and quantity of items they wish to sell. Up to 3 images may be uploaded with captions and a brief description may be entered. Keyword tags may be added as well as a location via Google Maps. Users have the option of requiring a shipment address or file attachment to the listing. A name or company title and PayPal email address is required for payment. The listing may be linked to social networking sites and integrate the product into webpages with an embed link … http://tinypay.me/

Remember the game show Name that Tune? “I can name that tune in 4 notes”. It was always a challenge to figure out the song from just a new notes. LyricRat is like that, but instead with lyrics. You type in some you’ve heard, click “find the song,” and the rat tells you the title and artist. If the song is for sale on Amazon, you can play a sample. You can also send a message via twitter to @LyricRat and it’ll message you back with the same information … http://lyricrat.com/

My poor wife was sick in bed with the flu. Being a dutiful husband, I offered to fix her some of her favorite herbal tea. I couldn’t find the tea though and went back upstairs to ask where it was.
She said, “I don’t know how it could be any easier to see. It’s in the pantry, third shelf down, in a cocoa tin marked “matches.”
(thanks, Bill)
