Ice Dozer - pulvarize the ice & snow

Ice Dozer M121 with a name like that and a picture like that sure seems a bad-a** ice scraper extreme. This big and rugged, oversized blade that flexes to match the curve of your windshield, clears 7" swath, with a front plow that pushes snow and ice ahead of you, even has two different sets of ice-cracking teeth. I see dual use, clean the windshield and bashing any skulls in a hand-to-ice-scrapper combat. US$19.95. Perfect before the snow and ice arrive.

With that note please add yourself on the netintrigues gmap and share with us a picture or note (please love notes only, ha!).

Herbs in your eggling

eggling is another japanese attempt at feng-shue? Cermaic eggs that come pre-loaded with your choice of herbs and soil. Crack em open like a hard boiled egg, add water and sunlight and in a few days you've got your own herbs sprouting. Basil, Mint, Italian Parsly, or Thyme are your choices. I'm sure we can think of a few hacks to this, but for legal reasons we won't touch that area. If you fancy them, they can be your's for US$10 each.

Netvibes, let it vibe your RSS

I've been really putting this RSS feed reader through its paces for last month. Despite my extensive attempts to scrutinize this, I have not found a single gripe about it. Yes, Google is out with their RSS reader, but this one, is clean, quick load, user friendly UI, highly customizable and actually a logical way of reading all your RSS feed. Even allows integration to your gmail and webnotes. You can access your own page, if you sign up for a free account. In the last month I have not gotten a single spam from them. I love it. Don't take my word, just try it out yourself. Costs you $0.00, nothing beats that.


The Hauntings

During this Halloween season use GooGhoul to locate spooktacular and freakish activities by your zip code. Oh come all ye haunters!

iPod it the iWay - Directions on your iPod

iWay is a neat FREE website that lets you put directions ( map & directions ) on your iPod. Sorry iPod Shuffle owners, you need a screen. iWay takes in your from and to directions, and gives back a .zip of sequential images of map and step-by-step directions. If you carry your iPod like your PDA, then this is for you. For me I stick with Avantgo on my pda.
