Scribd - A document sharing site

Many of you may have come across this site, but I recently discovered its worth when I was searching for a study document for a course. Man this site really has a lot of documents, Documents on any subject you may need, it is there. The search functionality is quite good and returns relevant results to your search.

The best part is that you can download documents in pdf format, embed a document in your blog. You can follow recent updates from scribd on their blog site http://blog.scribd.com/ . Apart from their search one could browse through a vast category of books if you don't have any particular subject in mind. Simply a great online tool to learn and spread the knowledge around by uploading your documents online.

Of course you can also buy ebooks apart from the free ones they have. If you didnt know about this site, do check it out.

Watch Live Cricket streams and Highlights

I have been using this site for quite some time now. Its been one of the best sources of live streaming cricket links. Frequently updated with live link to every ongoing match. Although the server may be down at times due to heavy traffic, otherwise it works like a charm. I would recommend this site.

Another point to be noted. What if you miss the live cricket match, don't worry, you can always catch up with highlights of all the matches within a day or two of the live broadcast. Has helped me to follow cricket even when I am abroad. No hassle of signing up or registering, just go to the page and stream to your wish.

Some video sharing sites that Ive come across till now. Click on image to visit the specific site. Am just sharing the sites which I feel are good.

Hotmail on your desktop

Microsoft has launched an e-mail client, similar to outlook. This is yet another program which can manage email account. Although hotmail does not offer pop settings, this program works as a normal email client, with the default configuration for your hotmail account. You just need to have a free hotmail account. Additional accounts like gmail etc can also be added/configured
