TIMEFORCAKE: Browser details, tracking packages and 5 cool links

special to the daily

A month ago I shared with you how easy it is to determine what browser and browser version you use. Today I’m admitting there’s actually a much easier way to locate this information (as well as some important related details).

That’s right. The next time someone asks you for any of the following:

1. your browser

2. your browser version

3. your operating system

4. your IP address

5. your user agent string

… don’t fret. Just visit http://www.thismachine.info. The moment you arrive you’ll find all the above-listed information displayed on your screen. It’s like your little private cheat sheet.

Go ahead and bookmark this page so that the next time tech support/your webmaster/that warranty card asks you for any of the above-listed details, you won’t feel like a deer in the headlights; you’ll instead be able to provide an accurate answer with ease.

Just about all major search engines (Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc.) allow you to drop a UPS tracking number into their search boxes. Hit enter and the search results will give you a direct link to your tracking page. I’ve always found this functionality rather convenient.

you use Adwords to promote your website on Google? Take a look at this. It’s a Pay-Per-Click (PPC) ROI calculator.

2. http://www.scraphd.com – An easy-to-use online scrapbook builder. Upload photos from your computer (or photo storage site like Picassa), share your scrapbook on Facebook or in your blog, and (coming soon) have your entire scrapbook – as well as cards and announcements – professionally printed. $9.99/month or $99/year.

3. http://tinyurl.com/2dm6ntl – Should you install optional Windows driver updates?

4. http://vimeo.com/11435503, http://vimeo.com/11647540, and http://vimeo.com/12200776 – “The Greek Crisis Explained.” Yes, here we have 3 short (1 minute) mini videos filled with super-fantastic animation and a fun background soundtrack, music, and sound effects. Enjoy the awesome animation and get yourself up to speed on the Greek crisis at the same time.

5. http://tinyurl.com/283dsyy – The technology of the future keeps on arriving! Here we have touchscreen vending machines, likely coming to a shopping mall near you in the not-too-distant future …
