Misspelled auctions on eBay

Sun October 16, 2005 at 20:27 | Posted in Curiosity, Trick, website | 3 Comments

Everybody makes mistakes.

But if an eBay seller misspells the name of the item he wants to sell, it will be very difficult to get some offers.

But now this site can help.

Just enter the correct word (Nokia, Disney etc) and it will search eBay for items on sale that have misspelled names of what you inserted (Mokia, okia, nikia etc).

So the seller will get some offers, and you will get the item at a very cheap price!


Some nice bookmarklets

Bookmarklets are kind of “intelligent bookmarks”.

In fact, they not only bring you to the website you want, but also do a particular action (search a word, subscribe to something etc) on that website.

I found some very interesting bookmarklets at MicroPersuasion

A favicon is a small, 16×16 image that is shown inside the browser’s location bar and bookmark menu when your site is viewed.
For example, this Wordpress favicon is the favicon that you see next to the WordPress url address.

If you want to have a favicon for your website, “Favicon for Pics” lets you create your own favicon with any picture you like!

If you need an email address to enter and check a website, all you need is a Dodgeit address.

Enter any email@dodgeit.com address in the web form when asked, go check your email@dodgeit.com to grab the password or validate the mail and then surf the website.
If you like it you can then use your real email address to subscribe. If you don’t like it, just forget about it; the mail@dodgeit.com will erase after 7 days.

The invisible web

What is the invisible web?
Quick answer: all the pages that are not found by search engines (Google, Yahoo, MSN etc).
Think about all the books indexed by Universities or Academies. Think about all the password-protected pages.
All those are not avaiable to the “public”.
But there are some tricks that can help you have a look even at those hidden pages.
I found a very interesting article in Lifehacker where they tell us “How to search the invisible web”.
