Share on LinkedIn

You’re busy.  And sometimes when you look around it seems like you’re missing that one edgy solution that helps you past the headache you have at the moment.

You’re not alone. (In fact, it gets better than that.) There’s a solution out there already just waiting to solve all your problems.

Someone else had the same problem you did and put together a solution to the problem once and for all.

Let’s take a look at awesome edgy technologies you might not have heard about before.


Need to remember where and why, faster?

Sentimnt brings together everything that you read and helps you recall it when you need to remember later.  Your email.  Your tweets.  Your RSS Feeds.  If it’s a part of anything that gets in front of your eyeballs, Sentimnt helps you with instant recall.

Add your accounts and it automatically creates an index that you can quickly search any time you need to remember how things went down..


Can’t remember that person you seem to always forget?

Noteleaf is right in your browser and it’s the ultimate notepad for keeping track of fun facts about people that you find across the interwebs.  You can even connect and import your Facebook friends right into the platform.

And if you ever need to find a friend or search for a note about one of your contacts, you just tap your Noteleaf bookmark and out slides a little area to find the information that you are looking for.


Need to stay sharp and aware of opportunities?

Diphur lets’ you bookmark any website and then notifies you the second that anything changes.  And not just on the the exact website you are looking at –  on any of the sub-sites that your bookmark references.  It’s certainly an alternative to the 37,000 Google alerts you have set up trying to capitalize on any new targeting opportunities.

Ohh… and  Diphur also tells you the number of Change Ups that have happened on the site.  And if you’re busy Diphur even has a way to let you read things later instead of trying to sort out all the details at the exact time that you hear that the site changes.


Need to make your data look sexy?

Tagxedo turns your words into pictures.  And cool ones at that.  You’ve seen a tag cloud before, but have you seen a tag cloud in shape of…. just about any picture you want it in?


Want a “grown up” address book?

Silentale helps you build the perfect address book.  To start it combines all of your online address books together (like Facebook, Linkedin, and Twitter…).  Then to top it off, Silentale sweeps through all your email accounts and fills in your address book with additional contact data.  And if a key contact isn’t in your address book, Silentale creates a new contact.

Find all your contacts and messages in one easy place.  Simply brilliant.


Need to crack that PDF or convert your files on-the-fly?

Zamzar converts any type of document or image or video or music or e-book or compressed file type to any other type.  It’s very useful because you simply upload your file to be converted and then sit back and wait for Zamzar to email you back with the new file.

And if you ever want to grab a video from the web (like Youtube, Google, Blip.TV, or a dozen other sites…), you simply type in the URL and Zamzar downloads it and then converts it to the format of your choice.

There is a solution to almost any problem.

And there’s usually an edgy technology there waiting to save you a headache.

Try one (or all of them).
