List of New Cool Websites

I am always looking for cool and interesting new websites on a variety of topics.  Here is a short list of some of those that I have come across recently.

Surf the Channel - this is a site that indexes "all videos, everywhere" and lists them in easy to navigate pages. Think of it as an agrregator for video sites across the net.  It combines Youtube, Hulu, and other video websites.

Mygazines - this website that allows you to browse, share, archive and customize unlimited magazine articles uploaded by hundreds of users.

Soundunwound - think of this website as a sort of Wikipedia for music.  It is part music store, part wiki, and designed to be the resource of choice for all music fans that need information about their favorite artists.  It is still in Beta, and pairs together two web giants Amazon and IMDB.

Stormpulse - this website tracks current storms as well as provides detailed historical information on past weather mischief.  It uses rich media interactive maps and statistics.

Quarkbase - is a free web application that allows you to find complete information about a website.  It is a mashup of over 30 data sources and gathers information from all over Internet on topics like social popularity, traffic, associated people, etc.

Indeed - this is a search engine for jobs - with a radically different approach to job search. It spans job Web sites, newspapers, and company career pages by keyword and location to fit your needs.

Diaroogle - this site helps you find quality public toilets from your mobile phone.  This is only useful in NYC at the moment, but with more cities to follow. 

getmooh - (Get Me Out of Here) is a website that will ring your phone at a specified time and playback a message, this is useful to send a b-day wish to a friend, annoy someone ;), get out of a horrible date, or cut out of a meeting early.

Vyew - this is a free desktop sharing application similar to GoTo Meeting or Webex but with more features and best of all it doesn't cost anything ;)
