Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life

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

Scrubly
http://www.scrubly.com

This site comes to you from my friend Justin. When I last discussed this with Justin, he had not yet thoroughly evaluated it, but it sounds worthwhile. Scrubly imports and updates your contacts with information from your social network on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. A “scrub” removes duplicates and merge compatible contacts. The Scrubly Free version includes all of the features and functionality of the paid version but limited to address book that contain 250 or fewer contacts. For unlimited contacts, you have the option of a 1-time scrub for $19.95 or unlimited scrubs for $39.95 per year.

This video comes from my friend, Ralph. Based on my own testing, I would say you’re better off investing in an expensive battery meter tester. Still, your mileage may vary so I wanted to share this with you.
