After so many serious website recommendations, here is something “light”. E-cards. Everyone knows and uses them. BUT: please, stop sending boring electronic cards. Especially if they are mainstream and not funny or original at all. Try something new today: http://www.someecards.com/ Old fashioned pictures combined with funny text!

I already shared 2 of my favourite sites, Lecture fox and Learnerstv where you can watch and download a massive amount of free lectures and courses. If you are hungry for more, here is your remedy: Go to iTunes U , the special iTunes site for information junkies and those who never had the opportunity to attend Harvard, Yale, MIT or Berkeley. Enjoy the best and most respected professor’s lectures on video or audio. The boring days are over, let’s start to do something with your life! It’s free and you can listen to the podcasts in (almost) every situation on your iPhone or iPod.
There are many excellent documentary movies on the Internet, you know those kind which are not advertised in the mainstream media, but it’s essential to know about. I have 2-3 sites i would like to introduce to you, where you can find hundreds of movies in one place. The first one is: http://documentaryheaven.com/ Currently it has about 1700 movies, log in and start to educate yourself about many topics. Enjoy!
Today i share with you some websites where you can download magazines and newspapers in PDF format. I’m a newspaper and magazine junkie, so i post 6 of my best recommendations.

Use simply this site, and you have everything in one place: http://www.tubeminator.com Register, and you get extra benefits!
All right, after so much serious topic i have today something light: MUSIC. But not a simple site! At http://helloday.tv/ you can pick your favourite genre (could be more), and voila, there is a endless stream of videos created just for you, like a playlist. Start with any video, you can jump afterwards back and forth. Try and enjoy!
Yes, another flight comparison website…but WAIT, this one is different! http://insidetrip.com/ makes the usual comparison and something more: this website analyses also the quality of your trip, so looks also to: number of stops, on time performance, legroom, aircraft type, travel duration and more. If you are flying within the USA, it shows also the gate location, security waiting times etc. So this website is a intelligent search engine for people looking something else and unique than the rest of the other similar websites. Have a look and try!
Sometimes it’s not clear how much luggage you can take on board the aircraft or to check in. With this website you can check and see immediately: http://www.luggagelimits.com/ Very handy also in case you plan a trip to somewhere to check which airline is giving you more luggage allowance. Try it today!
As my latest website recommendation was quite popular, i decided to share with you another site, which is focusing on video lectures. At http://www.learnerstv.com/ you can see hundreds of videos from prestigious university lectures.
