Sitemarks of the Week:
Sound Gecko: You came across a nice article but it happens sometime that you don’t have time to read it. Well, in such cases you can use SoundGeeko, a custom text-to-speech website which converts any internet page, article or write-ups into an audio file. After conversion you can simply download the file and play it in your favorite mp3 player. Using this site is very simple, all you have to do is to copy and paste the link of the article you want to listen and your email address where SoundGeeko will send the converted MP3 file (usually you will receive the file in few minutes). You can also synchronize the converted file with your dropbox or Google Doc and listen anytime anywhere.
Aherk: How many time you set some goals like quit smoking or losing weight – and a month later you have list of excuses to leave your goal. If you face this problem then Aherk is the place to set goal. Aherk is a black mailer service which threatens you to publish an incriminating photograph to your Facebook wall if you miss any deadline. Visit Aherk and its a three step setup.
