I came across this site on the net and had to share it with everyone. So many tools aggregated into one site that you are going to need a tool to keep track of all these tools. Luckily you dont have to, blogtrepreneur.com has put them all together and categorized them for you. Everything from time management to finding freelancers and Social Networking.
Have fun and dont get to overwhelmed with all the information. Take it in a bit at a time. Its interesting that I already use many of these sites already on a daily basis.

While stumbling around on Stumble! I came across an interesting little straw that claims it can filter out 7 Nines of bacteria from your drinking water, using micro-filtration technology.
Very cool and a must for any traveler, hiker or backpacker. Its easy to carry in your pocket and can mean the difference between a horrible or enjoyable travel experience.

Google does it again, purchasing a startup Grand Central. At this point its a free service that allows you to centralize all your phone numbers into one, allowing you to give out one number that can be routed to any number you may have.
Currently its has been put into a beta state, presumably because its been pruchased by google, but without much wait I was able to obtain an invite into the service. If any of you would like an invite just comment in this post with your email address and I will pass it along.
Noteable features include the ability to dial as your grand central number, from your address book online (currently unlimited but will become a paid service when beta is over). Switch numbers in the middle of the call, this is great if your cell phone is dieing or you are not getting good service inside your home. Listening in on people leaving a voice mail, even answer the call in the middle of the voice mail too! Others include call blocking, forwarding, voicemail and more…
Check it out for yourself over at Grand Central for more information and if you are interested, dont forget to drop me a comment and I will send you an invite.
I have been on a quest to get as many friends possible on myspace, which has been fairly successful. Over the past few weeks, I have accumulated over 1100 friends. This has been accomplished using a few sites, which I will list below. Overall the process is manual, and the quality of people that are added to your profile are about half decent the other half bots or spam. If you are trying to market a product on myspace using this technique, the best way would be to spam friends, put up a picture of a hot girl, and target your product directly to myspace users. Such as a friend spammer, profile tool or any other type of myspace tool.
You can also be sure that the site that your using to spam isnt going to spam you with additional spam because any good site only requires your friend ID without any other form of registration. This makes it quick and easy to start spamming for friends.
Below are the list of sites used to spam friends to my profile:

Its great that MySpace allows you to put a single artists song onto your myspace page, but what if you could share your myspace artist playlist instead of a single song to a users profile!
Its completely possible and very easy to do, check out the play list below, try sharing it to your page. Its easy and not only can you share it to your myspace page but you can share it to any social network on the net. Blogger, iGoogle, and many others simply by using the viral sharing tools provided by sharemyspaceplaylist.com and Clearspring.
Check out Share Myspace Playlist dot com that allows you to share any myspace artist playlist to any social network on the net. Its quick and easy, just type in the url of any myspace artist playlist into the search box and share the playlist using Clearsprings launchpad tool.
It has become very apparent to me that information in my head will either by useful or completely useless, however, that is for the readers of this blog to decide. Many of the topics posted here will be information that is useful to me in someway shape or form. The internet is about spreading information to those who aren’t as fortunate and can’t surf the net for hours on end each day. I think of the bloggosphere as thousands of my own little data miners, collecting on the best information for me to consume. This is my outlet to contribute such a cause.
While rummaging through the digital clutter that is sometimes the internet, a very interesting tool crossed my path. For months/years I have been using demo versions of the popular Alcohol image mapping software, but switched to mac and never really had to worry about mapping ISO files. Never the less here is an “unofficial” “unsupported” free image mapping tool from our pals, Microsoft.
Tool of the day
This find is something too good to keep to myself, a free image mounting tool. You are able to mount anything from ISO to IMG files and the best part is that its totally free. Brought to you “unofficially” by Microsoft here winxpvirtualcd
Here’s the readme:
