AppSpace.com Helps You Find The Right App

The number of apps available for the iPhone, Android OS and Blackberry is rapidly approach a combined 200,000. Wading through the sewage that constitute most apps to find that diamond in the rough can be a daunting task.  For some of us installing and deleting apps is a hobby, but most people don’t have the patience or desire to go through all that downloading and testing.

AppSpace.com is a recommendation engine for the app store of your choosing (WebOS is once again snubbed) and is intended to help you find just the right app for your needs.  By taking your indicated areas of interest and the apps you like and dislike (based on your ratings) AppSpace will recommend apps for you to try (along with the appropriate download links).

It’s a handy little system and while you’ll probably still have some trial and error in finding the perfect app for your tastes, AppSpace should definitely make the process easier.

How to Ditch Your Cable Bill

I am a registered TV-holic.  There have been interventions and anonymous meetings.  So, for me, cutting the cable is not a realistic option (though I did consider it to save money), BUT that doesn’t mean I don’t need more access to my favorite shows, movies and sports (content in general).

My personal favorites are a combination of Netflix and torrents (but we’re not talking pirating right now).

I really wanted to write a post about all the ways that you can use the internet to gain access to your favorite video content but Lifehacker has put together such a comprehensive list of sites and methods that I must defer to it’s greatness.

I must give one caveat before I leave you to cut your cable…

You’ll still be paying for content.  Not everything you want will be available online for free.  Most of your sports will require subscriptions.  Most movies will require a purchase.  So don’t think you’re going to get away for free, but if you don’t need much content in your life, or just need a very specific subset, then maybe you are ready to free yourself.
