MEASURING WORTH, BUZZVOICE, AND COOLIRIS

MeasuringWorth.com translates past prices into today’s dollars. Example: in 1902, a barrel of oil in West Texas sold for three cents. That would be 77 cents in today’s dollars.(The actual current price is around $85. ) If you made $10,000 a year in 1774, that would be the equivalent of $5.2 million today.

BuzzVoice.com is a free service that will read your favorite news items and blogs out loud. You can listen on your computer, MP3 player or your iPhone and share the items with others on social networking sites like Facebook. It’s a pretty robotic voice, but tolerable.

Cooliris.com helps you find, navigate, and subscribe to shows on the web, including TV episodes, news, etc.
