Sites of the Week: June 1, 2013

“I failed in some subjects in exam, but my friend passed in all. Now he is an engineer in Microsoft and I am the owner of Microsoft.”

Bill Gates

Now on to this week’s sites. This week, I’m sending out three ‘Site of the Week’ recommendations.

ICEdot
https://icedot.org/

ICEdot is an emergency ID and notification service for cyclists, runners, hikers and campers. This In Case Of Emergency service was created in 2009 and is partnered with two of the largest nationwide EMS organizations. All of their products include simple ICE (In Case of Emergency) instructions for accessing their system. ICEdot syncs a secure online profile with products such as a band, snap, helmet stickers or its latest product, the Crash Sensor. In Case Of Emergency, ICEdot shares health and GPS location information over SMS/text. Premium membership is $10 annually.
 

The Urinal Game
http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/games/urinal

This site will likely appeal mostly to the male readers, but this short game may give the female readers some insight into the difficult challenges men face on a daily basis which they can only imagine.
 

LucyPhone
http://www.lucyphone.com/

Lucy (Let Us Call You) allows you hang up when you call customer service and are put on hold. Just click on one of many companies listed or type in their phone number as well as your own and you will then be called back when a customer service representative finally picks up. When you inevitably get placed on hold, press the star (*) key twice, and LucyPhone will take over and you can hang up. When a human picks up on the other end, LucyPhone rings you back. There’s a chance that if you don’t pick up fast enough, the representative might place you back on hold. Press the star (*) key twice again and LucyPhone jumps back in.
