Do you find CNET video reviews helpful or at least interesting? Would you like your 15 SECONDS of fame? ShopWiki, which I posted earlier this week, now has video reviews for any product contained within their database. They are paying $50 to the first 500 accepted video reviews. And yes, you can submit multiple reviews.

Frankly I am on the fence with the influx of Social websites and bookmarking software. Its all very cool, but so overwhelming. Plus you need to sign up for each one- what a pain! But with the 2-year old Yelp, it’s at least functional with finding local businesses on a modified google map. Idealab’s Insiderpages is moving in a similar direction.
A real old standby of mine is Michael Fagan’s Fagan Finder’s URLinfo. Rather than try to summarize, here it is from the horse’s mouth: “URLinfo is a tool for handling web pages, such as finding information about it, translating it, finding related pages, etc. To use it, type a URL (web page address) into the box in the top frame.

Enjoy not getting nothing done today….Paul
