December Bookmarks: Handy Sites to Check Out

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

I’m always on the lookout for websites and apps that make life easier. Walmart has a new way to find gifts for your friends, and Secure.Me wants to be the policeman for your Facebook profile.

‘Tis the season for giving. But how do you find something unique that your friends and family will want?

ShopyCat looks at your friend’s interests on Facebook, then recommends products it thinks they’ll like. Of course, Walmart.com is well represented, but it also pulls ideas from Red Envelope, Barnes and Noble and Think Geek.

If you wanna track your reputation online, or keep tabs on what your kids are doing on Facebook, Secure.Me can help.

The site scans your profile plus those of your friends for questionable posts and malicious links. It also uses facial recognition to find pictures of you that your friends uploaded but didn’t tag you in.

You’ve heard of Blogger and Tumblr, but how about Pinterest?  The fast growing site lets you create digital bulletin boards of the stuff you love, such as fashion, food and cute pets. You can also see who else shares you “pinterests.”

Finally, take control of that stack of papers laying around the house. No need for a scanner, just fire up your phone.
Turbo Scan uses your camera to turn paper into PDF’s.
The quality is phenomenal, use it to instantly digitize bills, receipts, ticket stubs and more. It's all the stuff that’s better suited for the shredder.
