Offshoring.com: choose profit over your country

Always dreamed of running a sweatshop, but were worried about the legal ramifications? Sick of paying American workers boatloads of money just because the government says it's fair?

Something Rotten With Apple

AutoVer's Got Your Back(up)

Fireworks, parades, unicorns made of ice cream, pleasant leprechauns doing amusing jigs; these things are fun. Backing up files is not. If you disagree with this you may be a loser. Check that, you are a loser. Or a network admin. Wait, that should read AND a network admin. Boring network geeks...

Rely on peers for online airport advice

Travelling nowadays can be frustrating. Not 16th Century four months on a boat "oh no do I have scurvy" frustrating, but it can still be a pain. Yeah, there's the bad food and uncomfortable seats that every single stand up comic in the '80's talked about, but there are also the constant and...

Get free stock from SynthaSite

Let's say you head into some dark, seedy, back alley bar in an unnamed Scandinavian country, and to your shock and horror, you find people crowding around a ring cheering as a small child, maybe 4 years old is in a ring facing off in a fight to the death with a 1000 pound polar bear.

Learn things visually at/in 5min

As "Sweatin' to the Oldies" proved oh so long ago, videos are a great way to learn things. In STTO's case, it taught you how annoying Richard Simmons was, which would've taken much longer to learn through words alone. Israeli startup 5min aims to prove that you can learn pretty much anything...
