Internet Movie Database

The name says it all! imdb.com This is the Holy Grail for movie fans. If you ever need to know who was in what or how many degrees of separation someone is from Kevin Bacon, you can spend all day on this site!

I first started using this site probably 12 years ago when it was us.imdb.com . Everything any anything a movie geek would want is one there from movie posters to actor biographies to trivia and more!

Here are a few of my favorite things....

Steve Buscemi
Pulp Fiction
Angelina Jolie
Lord of the Rings

Ok, those are just a few things to keep you busy.

Wow, they are so Geeky they even left the "E" out of "Extreme". www.x-tremegeek.com All spelling jokes aside. This store seems to be reasonably price and have some of the most geeky items out there. Check the following out for example:

Darth Vader Lamp/ Alarm Clock

Recycled LED Motherboard Christmas Tree

Flashing Simulated Alarm Light

Wooden Beer Mug Puzzle

If variety was the spice of life, this site would be considered Zesty!

Get it while it lasts! Woot® : One Day, One Deal™ A deal-a-day site for all, it features daily t-shirt, kids, wine, and random product deals. Woot!

Oh, let's not forget about Woot-offs! What is that? That is a day when they take a number of limited time offers and put them on the site for people to grab up while they can. When they're out of one product, they move on to the next.

Here's a Woot-off secret... Follow Woot on Twitter and they will send you tweets with the next item as it comes up.

So... what have I gotten from woot? A couple of T-Shirts for $10-15 (After the daily offer, the price goes up $5 on shirt) and inexpensive MP3 players for the kids. By inexpensive, I mean $15, and yes, they work just fine still!

There is also a Woot extension for Chrome (and most likely a plugin for Firefox) to check out all the offers without going to the site.

Check it out!

How to Pick an Android Smartphone

Wow, it actually works. Gizmodo If you follow the diagram it led me to the Droid X, which is what I had ordered. Good news.

Well, the rest of the site is interesting as well. It is sponsored by Canon (the camera makers), and features a variety of reviews and quirky tech stuff like Running iPhone Apps on a TV or how to get cats to stay off your Roomba. Plenty of other fun and informative tech stuff there too!
