Online Movie Maker: Animoto

Oh my, what a holiday! I found a tool online that greatly makes photo slideshows in a jiffy. Plus, I do NOT have to download anything...and they customize unique movies just for you! So how do you do it? Go to Animoto but prepare your photos and background music if you don't like their music library. If your photos are readily stored in one of the photo-hosting sites out there, then you only need a few clicks to get your movie. What a way to end 2008!

This site is such a godsend to those who have gazillions of photos and lots of free time... *****!

Here's my holidays sample :)

Online Classifieds: CebuClassifieds

Oh my! I finally found the Craiglist of Cebu. Still on its infancy stage, I feel I hit the jackpot with this site. Anyway, great deals are found here but of course, discretion with sellers is warranted. It is not as "safe" as ebay with the lack of feedback from sellers. But then again, it beats buying paper-based classifieds or googling for items.

CebuClassifieds is better than your average classified ads, IMO. I hope they improve it though so it can get really interesting for Cebuano buyers and sellers.

For today, I give CebuClassifieds ***** for its potential.

Green Living: Meralco

Still on the issue of home living, I found out that Meralco's website was consumer-friendly. On the home page, you can actually learn and calculate the number of kilowatts running in the household with their MAC. It's a calculator of some sorts that identifies your energy consumption. Surely, this is a helpful tool for new homeowners and maybe with frivolous electronically laden homes. it definitely monitors your consumption and perhaps lessen the waste of energy.

Moreover, I went over their blog on consumer tips (still a main page link) that helps out in efficient and green living. Green living should not be just a fad... it should be a way of life.

I give ***** for Meralco's website for contributing to a greener world.

Interior Decorating: Dutchboy

Since the promise of a new abode is imminent, I cannot wait to fill the home with artistic details. I know there are a bunch of sites that cater to interior decorating, but Dutchboy's site is more than just wall paint. Here you see a lot of designing ideas and color combinations. I just love how everything is prettily laid out and organized here. In fact, I am so confused over the numerous suggestions, I think I want my home to be a rainbow.

There's the gallery and more painting tips if you're into DIYs. Enough said, I am grateful that this site exists. I may, in fact, use Dutchboy to compliment my gratitude. :P

For today, Dutchboy satiated the artistic side in me... *****.

Online Videos: Sling

I don't need television sets anymore! Sling just made TV viewing comfortably accessible. We're talking about primetime shows and good-quality movies. There is no need for downloading torrents and movie files. Well, you should require a fast internet connection and a synonymously efficient computer to appreciate Sling. Just the same, we can unplug our TV sets and just let our time be the guide. Say hello to CSI, Saturday Night Live, The Office, and loads more, streaming as great-quality videos.

No more TivO, no more schedule guides, no more costly cable subscriptions. Your favorite shows, anytime and anyday at your beck and call!

Warning: videos may not be available in many regions.

Sling on beta is pretty promising. My full ***** for just making the Internet a better place.

Fun Text Editor: Flip Title

Sure, your social pages get boring with time. Spice it up by flipping your text. Fool and amaze your friends with Flip Title's editor. It's really very simple, but it's cute. It's not for everyday though.

Flip Title can get very addicting. Yet, I'm pleased that this site exists!
