November 2010




Have you ever sent an email and wondered whether the recipient received it? If so here's a great way to track your e-mails and not only find out if it was properly delivered, but also if it was read- how long it was read - if it was forwarded and if an attachment was opened.

These folks have a neat system that allows you to add a few additional letters to the recipient's e-address. That's it - they take care of the rest. You can even set up a message to self-destruct after it has been read!

This system is a truly glorifies "return receipt" on steroids but it goes way beyond the old standard certified mail and provides you with valuable intelligence.

Great way to find out what's going on!

RECS Radio


We'll bet you have a bunch of old electronic gadgets and devices in a box or stored someplace around the house or office. We'll bet too that sometimes you scratch your heard and wonder why you're keeping these old cell phones, iPods, calculators, camcorders, laptops, monitors, etc.

This great place will help you clear some space - and maybe add a few shekels to your bank account. You simply enter the name and model of the product and its general condition. When this neat program searches, quick as a wink, you'll get a list of the companies that will buy your heirlooms and the price they'll pay. And, if no one will pay you for your trash, they'll give you a list of local places where you can have it recycled.

Clean up - either way!

Every once in a while you may want to convert a file to a different format. For example from a Word document to a PDF file. Here's the hitch - often we need special (and sometimes costly) software to accomplish this.

To help you with this, these nice folks let us upload our file to their special on-line program where they automatically convert it to whatever file format you choose. Then they email it right back to using the format we requested. They will also provide you with web browser button so you can convert files from all your favorite websites with a click. The free version will handle all but the largest files.

Nice to know that service is there! It's quick & easy and, unless you need to convert lots of files on a regular basis, you can save some big bucks! And oh yes - it's with their compliments!
