Sites of the Week: November 16, 2014

“Tact is the ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a way that they look forward to the trip.”

– Winston Churchill

The Week

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

Artifact Uprising

“Inspired by the disappearing beauty of the tangible.” This is a photo printing site unlike most others. As the site states “As one click of the shutter turned to another turned to hundreds of thousands of photos, we realized our documented lives were sitting on our phones and computers with no true place to live on. It’s something we kept coming back to—‘What are we leaving behind?’” This site offers quality photo books, prints and cards at a corresponding price.

Mad Genius Radio

The personalized radio service is another crowded field, but Mad Genius Radio is a Denver-based company that is a bit different. It offers dozens of professionally curated genres which you can personalize to your taste. Like other sites, your ratings control how often you hear songs and artists but you’re not limited to a simple thumbs up/down. Mad Genius lets you rate tracks and artists from zero to five or ban them from your mix altogether. Requests let you hear deep cuts or other tracks that may be popular just to you. Soon, Mad Genius will be a subscription-only service following a 36-day free trial.

Cost of Living Comparison Calculator

Most of you probably have no immediate plans to relocate, but you still may find this site of interest. Bankrate offers this free cost of living comparison calculator that compares the cost of living of any two locations you select.
