Weekly Roundup

One of the more unusual travel websites I have seen, at first I thought Sleeping in Airports was a joke, but it’s not. They offer lists of the best and worst airports to sleep in, reviews, tips, photos, cartoons and a blog.

The mission of iFixit is to create a free repair manual for every device. Anyone can edit the entries, making it sort of a DIY version of Wikipedia. They also offer troubleshooting tips, reviews of new gadgets, service parts, tools, a free newsletter and a blog.

We Go Look “provides visual confirmation and a personalized report, completed by a real person, to verify a product, person, place or thing.” The service offers background check verified “Lookers” that will look over, photograph and provide a report on practically anything that you can’t see in person for yourself.

And now for something completely different – a site or two off the beaten path.

Be forewarned, Found is an addictive site. They feature “love letters, birthday cards, kids' homework, to-do lists, ticket stubs, poetry on napkins, doodles-- anything that gives a glimpse into someone else's life. Anything goes.”

Boing Boing calls their blog “Brain candy for happy mutants” and you just never know what they are going to feature or write about. A great site to add a little variety to your day.
