Useless & IOT | Bored ? Kill a few mins by feeding some real fish online

"Sometimes it can be relaxing to peer into a fish tank and just pass a few minutes in quiet contemplation. Just you and the fish. But if you’re at work, this isn’t really a very practical way of de-stressing."

Tips & Tricks | "Send Big Files Securely"

Protect Your privacy With WireOver’s Encrypted File Sharing.

"Nothing is truly NSA-proof or hacker-proof, but WireOver wants to offer you more security than Dropbox, Google Drive, or Skydrive. The Y Combinator startup just emerged from stealth with a desktop app that lets you send files of any size for free. And for $10 a month, your transfers get end-to-end encryption so only the recipient can open them. WireOver can’t even look at what you’re sending."
