Need another free email account?

Wait a minute. This is not your run-of-the-mill email service. Think Mission Impossible. Whenever Ethan Hunt got his message it will self destruct in 5 seconds. This is what Big String does.

Quote :
“BigString allows a user to easily send, recall, erase, self-destruct and modify an email after it has been sent.”

How cool is that. It’s like being “buruk siku” with your emails. With this you can always take your words back literally. Or erase them permanently. Kaboom…
Besides that, they even have video email features. This I have never tried.

Oh and they are having a section for users to win USD$100 by spilling beans on their own embarrassing emails. Topics to choose range from Break up emails to Gossip Emails that ended up in the wrong hands. Any takers?

Time for Picnik

No no no. It’s not the time for going outdoors and having sandwiches and finger foods with family and friends. Although one can see floating kites, picking blackberries, buttering sandwiches, stealing picnic baskets, fluffing clouds while waiting for Picnik to load.Those of you who blogs in the office without a photo editing software will definitely need to bookmark this. Seriously. Because Picnik will save you a lot of hassles and headache. And you could do it anywhere… it’s an online photo editor.

Quote from their site:
“With Picnik you can quickly edit all your online photos from one place. It’s the easiest way on the Web to fix underexposed photos, remove red-eye, or apply effects to your photos.”

I have tried their online demo and it works great. Upload your photo and tweak all you want. Choose from a horde of effects. And they are still in Beta Version. So expect loads to come. They could perhaps add a text button too.
