Tech tools anyone can use

Posted Thursday, April 28, 2011, at 10:44 PM

I've come across some good tools that will make life easier. so I'd like to share them with the readers.

QuickForget.com

Sometimes, you need to send sensitive information--say, a password--over the internet, but don't want to use email. Free service QuickForget lets you store messages temporarily, so you can send sensitive information and have it delete itself once it's been seen.

The problem with using, say, email or IM to send sensitive messages is that they'll likely be stored forever for anyone to see that might eventually gain access. To avoid this, QuickForget destroys your messages after a set number of viewings or set amount of time. Just type in your message, set how long you want the message to last, and you'll get a secret link you can send to your friend to view it.

so just head over to http://quickforget.com/

Followupthen.com

do you need a way to remind yourself of tasks? try this simple email reminder. You do not even need an account. All you need to remember is @followupthen.com. try it now by emailing 2minutes@followupthen.com and see what happens!

FollowUpThen requires no account to get started!

Just compose an email and include [schedule format]@followupthen.com in the "Cc", "Bcc" or "To" fields of your email. Each is a bit different:

*BCC: You will receive a followup but we won't bug the original recipient.
*TO: You will get a followup after the time interval you specify.
*CC: If your recipient has not responded by the scheduled time, both of you receive a followup. Note: Your recipient has to "reply all" to include followupthen on their response for us to know about it. You can always cancel followups by emailing pending@followupthen.com
