While I really love this site, I think I'm in the minority who don't enjoy the layout. Something about all the white space just really irks me.

That being said, great source for all things geek culture. Can easily lose a daily stumbling through this site.

When you're barely able to rub two nickels together, Groupon saves the day. From gifts for friends, to getting a hair cut, to getting a dental exam for us shmucks who don't have dental...this site can save your butt!

Downside: I have found that sometimes my services aren't as great as if I am a full paying customer. That's not Groupon's fault, but poor practice on the business' end. So just be aware that sometimes you do get what you pay for :-/

A geek's dream!

Need to decorate your home? Get fun kitchen gadgets? Send Dad a belated Father's Day t-shirt? You can do that all here!

The descriptions are one of my favorite aspects of the site. You can tell the staff really enjoys their products, and want you to as well.

HBO GO

HBO GO

Film & Television , Video Streaming
Yes yes yes!

HBO GO is fantastic!

Having HBO shows in their entirety, as well as a fantastic selection of films, right at your finger tips is great. The film selection is DEFINITELY better than HuluPlus', and it still offers you the ability to binge like we've all learned to do from Netflix!

I've had a few problems with things loading, but that could be an issue on my end.

I'm pretty positive that only 7 people in the world actually bought this and we're all sharing their login.

I adore this site!

I've bought from them a lot and have always been happy with my purchases.

The clothes are described to a tee, making it easy to order online without any dread of ordering the wrong size. The kitchen items? Adorable! I bought canisters and salt and pepper shakers from them and get tons of compliments on them! I love that their items are just as functional as they are cute.

I've never had to make a return, so I haven't dealt dealt with support much, but that being said they always deliver promptly ad are great with email notifications about your purchases.

Only thing I don't like is that there's so many items on a page, that it can be overwhelming at times. But that's just a little thing.

Apartment hunting sucks, but PadMapper helps it suck less.

The site is simple: type in your credentials, and lil balloons will pop up on the map! It pulls renting information from different sites, so no need to go combing through as many sites to find what you're looking for.

Once upon a time, I had a boyfriend named BattleChimp. Then he rediscovered Pokemon, and consequently you.

YOU CAN'T LOVE HIM LIKE I CAN.

...but boy does he love you.

I'm late to the Pinterest game, and honestly thought the concept was so dumb when I first heard it: "It's a bulletin board for the internet." Pffft. K.

Now, I'm pretty obsessed. From finding new recipes, to learning new life hacks, to reading up on DIY home renovations and decorations, this thing is actually pretty damn rad.

Be warned: It's a HUGE time suck. You'll find an hour has gone by and all you've done is pin organized linen closets.

Amazon

Amazon

http://www.amazon.com

Shopping , Marketplace
This is my go-to, one-stop site for holiday shopping.

Since they sell pretty much everything, it's easy to find that stuff for any one on your shopping list. Plus the used option can help keep my purchases for myself within my budget. I've had great luck with used photography equipment.

Of course, Amazon is a marketplace with thousands of sellers, so it's hard to give a comprehensive review when you're dealing with individual venders. Thanks to the site itself, you can review the individual vendors, and read reviews before you decide to buy.

Dear Travelzoo,

This is a love letter. Are you beautiful? Mmmm... you're pretty but let's not be hyperbolic and say you're gorgeous. I mean, you're definitely not fugly or anything! (4 stars!) You could try a little harder but we all know that it's what's on the inside that counts....

Such a fantastic podcast!
Duncan has a knack for narrative history, taking all the disparate stories and facts and weaving it all together into a story that's fun and engaging.
It's also very well researched.
Would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in history.

I think the site looks dull now. I hope it evolves into more modern design. And also consider user experience.

The History of Byzantium

I heartily agree with the reviews on this podcast series left so far by other listeners. I've not yet listened to Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast (though I'm now inspired to do so), but the History of Byzantium podcast is a tour de force from Robin. He has done a sterling and balanced job...

I have found the History of English podcast absolutely riveting; in fact, I 'binged- listened' my way through the first 100 or so episodes, and am very relieved that there are clearly many more to come :-). History via etymology - a great concept, well-delivered by Kevin. Highly recommended.
