Here we'll show a small collection of useful, useless and funny or whacko sites on the Web which are always worth a visit on rainy days. Enjoy!!
Sears needs a new tool. Coca-Cola wants to enhance its packaging. S.C. Johnson has to simplify cleaning. Any ideas? No doubt you've had hundreds of fleeting inspirations that briefly entered your brain but were ultimately thrown out because you didn't know what to do with them. Don't let the brain drain continue. At Ideas.com, you can market those fabulous ideas, or come up with solutions for corporate behemoths like the ones mentioned above.
go there ...
You can sell ideas, buy ideas, and even submit your ideas to specific companies or the public at large. Your special invention may be worth thousands of dollars--or not--but there's no success without trying, and here's a good place to start.
Bossmonster uses Flash to make games for corporate websites, but anyone who has a yen for cheap entertainment, is easily amused, or appreciates good online animation can enjoy the games on this site. In "BubblePop!", you pop bubbles on a sheet of bubble wrap by clicking them, and when you're done, the game measures how bored you are. Other games, like "Penguin Arcade" (in which you shoot ice cubes at waddling penguins), are more like traditional video games. Each game includes a brief explanation of how to play and lists the minimum requirements that you need.
|The Smoking Gun
Bored with the limited number of confidential documents at your disposal? Has eavesdropping on your colleague's phone conversations and reading your wife's diaries left you wanting more? Smoking Gun is the perfect place to pick up quirky dirt obtained through the Freedom of Information Act. Perhaps you'd like a closer look at George W. Bush's DUI arrest record or the court-related dirt on the New York Yankees.
Stranger still, there's a copy of a highly questionable questionnaire a landlord gave to prospective tenants, the filings in a bizarre Canadian lawsuit, and even Bill Gates mugshot t-shirts. It's probably not what they meant by "the information age," but who cares.
