BeepMyStuff.com: Track your personal book and multimedia libraries
Apr 24th, 2009 by Beth

This tool is a little strange, but I can see how it may be handy if you need to track your home library or if you sell things on Half.com or the like. Of course, I know people who keep detailed catalogs of their personal libraries, so maybe this tool would be perfect for them.

BeepMyStuff.com lets you use a webcam to capture the barcodes from your DVDs, Blu-Ray Movies, CDs, Video Games and Books.

scr.im: Convert your email to a URL
Apr 14th, 2009 by Beth

The other day I wrote about a site that converts your email address into a graphic so spammers can’t sweep your site.

This tool, with the unfortunate name of scr.im, converts your email address into a simple URL, and people who want to write you have to pass a simple test to show they’re human. Kinda cool, pretty clever and, best of all, completely free.

scr.im « Share your email in a safe way. Get less spam.

PDFVue: Free PDF editing
Mar 17th, 2009 by Beth

PDFVue is a web-based tool that lets you upload a PDF, add notes, make changes and share. I played around with it for a few minutes, and I couldn’t get it to actually change the text in one of my client documents, but I loved how I could add notes about the changes I wanted to see.

I also like the ability to create forms, add pictures and links, and generally get something handy for nothing.

Docstoc: Free legal forms and business templates
Feb 24th, 2009 by Beth

In today’s social media world, we’ve all come to rely on the kindness of strangers. That’s why docstoc works… people share copies of legal, business, tech and educational documents with the community, allowing other community members to download them for free.

I did a quick search for an example business plan, and docstoc came back with thousands of documents. You can sort by ranking or popularity and really take a shortcut to creating your own documents.

You can also upload and sync your own documents, keeping them private if you like, for an online storage backup.

Docstoc.com – free legal forms and business templates.
