IMDb

IMDb

http://www.imdb.com

Reference , Film & Television
I have come to absolutely LOVE IMDb. Everything on the site is organized and broken up into categories. Not only can you find out every work that your favorite actor/actress has been in, but the movie rating part is also helpful. There have been plenty of movies that I have skipped due to a poor IMDb rating.

I love the fact that there is also an area to put your own customer review of a movie, along with a forum for people to communicate with one another.

Wonderful site, there's nothing not to like about it.

eBay

eBay

http://www.ebay.com

Auction , Marketplace
I really do want to like eBay. Trust me, I do. I love the concept, I love the idea. However, during the past several years, the site has gone way down in my opinion.

Customer support is HORRIBLE, one of the worst. If you want to sell anything on there, be prepared to spend an arm and a leg just on eBay fees. Not to mention that competition is so huge on there, It's very unlikely that you will get a high amount of bids on anything.

It's no longer that easy to use; the whole process is a bit complicated as a matter of fact. Hate the integration of paypal and the fact that you can pretty much ONLY use paypal.

For these reasons, I choose to stay away.

PayPal

Business , Online Payment
Yes, paypal is a force to be reckoned with, I agree. However, their policies have become way too strict for no reason at all. I hate the fact that if you sell on eBay, you have to wait 14 days for your funds to be clear. Also, they are extremely quick to shut off someones account for no fault of their own.

People haven't been too pleased with the service for the past several years; myself included. I much rather stick with newer services being offered by banks (such as popmoney or quickcash).

Fiverr

Fiverr

http://www.Fiverr.com

Marketplace , Services
I have been using fiverr for the past 6 months, and so far, the pros definitely outweigh the cons. However, the service isn't perfect, and there is a lot that can be changed.

Pros:
Pretty simple to use, both as a buyer and a seller.
Good way to get a service done at a cheap price.
Good way for people to make a little extra money.
They offer 2 payments methods, which is convenient for those of us who don't like paypal.

Cons:
No way to block a buyer OR sender.
Customer service could be better.
A LOT of competition!
Weird feedback system.

Overall, Fiverr is a good site and I would recommend it.

iOffer

iOffer

http://www.ioffer.com

Marketplace , Shopping
I really want to like iOffer. I absolutely love the concept of it, and have purchased quite a few things from there. Trust me, I would LOVE to see a site come along and beat out eBay. However, iOffer is not the one that's going to do it.

First of all, most of the "designer" products on there are knock offs. Sure, you can get a LV bag for $30, but don't expect high quality OR fast shipping. Most things I have ordered have taken up to 2 weeks to arrive.

Customer service isn't up to par, either.

Overall, if you want some cheap items and don't care about waiting around for it to arrive, I would recommend iOffer. For the most part, however, I would stay away.

Zillow

Zillow

http://www.zillow.com

Housing , Shopping
I really really like Zillow a lot. It helps aid in the search for a new home. I love the fact that it gives you the demographics of a neighborhood, including the school data and mortgage rates. Anytime I have wanted to do a home buying search, Zillow is what I use to find out property value/current home value, etc. Most Real Estate Agents use it, meaning that if a home is going up for sale, Zillow will know pretty much right away.

Yahoo Answers

Yahoo Answers

http://answers.yahoo.com

Q&A , Reference
I have been a member of Yahoo Answers for years. When I was a teenager, I used to go on to ask silly questions (mostly advice related), and would patiently await my answers. Now that I am an adult I admit, I still do that, lol. But you can also find out a lot of great information from Yahoo Answers as well.

The one con of this site is that you are basically getting opinion based answers. If you have a medical question, for example, you cannot rely on the answers from the members to be the correct one. Virtually anyone can respond to your question, so don't go there in search for medical/legal/ or similar questions.

craigslist

craigslist

http://www.craigslist.com

Marketplace , Career
I have SUCH mixed feelings about Craigslist. First of all, it has become a bit unsafe. I can't really blame craigslist for this; It's the fault of the current generation of people living in the world today. However, the concept of meeting up with a complete stranger to buy/exchange items is shady to me.

I have done it, and have gotten stood up or scammed quite a few times. Only a few weeks ago I drove an hour out of my way to meet someone who wanted to buy an item for me, and she never showed up. It's a pain.

Numerous people have gotten scammed out of job opportunities on there. Not to mention the few killings that have taken place.

I do, however, LOVE the concept and the site is extremely easy to use. I found my apartment on there, along with numerous other things.

Just like anything else, you have to use your own discretion when you use sites like this.

SeatGuru

By Air , Reference
SeatGuru is an awesome service, and I'm so happy it was invented. You get to see a color coded interactive seating chart before even booking your flight. This takes the guess work out of where you will be sitting before you even board the plane.

I have used it several times in the past, and have always been pleased by it. Highly recommend

Go Get Funding

Go Get Funding

http://gogetfunding.com/

Crowdfunding , Business
Crowdfunding has become a huge sensational across the internet in the past year or so. I have seen many sites pop up and die down; crowdfunding is definitely one of the best that I have seen in a long time. It is easy to use, and reaches out to a vast population.

I love the concept, and have helped others with their goals as well. Highly recommend.

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.

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.
