A couple of years ago we reviewed a powerful survey program called Zoomerang. At the time the service was free, but like so many other companies on the web, theses folks discovered they had to feed the kids! So they started to charge -and charge they did to the tune of $599 per year. (Now the kids are eating caviar!)

But along come a neat new survey company that offers a free survey service that allows you to create surveys in minutes using the web to distribute your questions, receive up to 100 responses a month and analyze the results. This is neat stuff for personal and small company or organization survey support. And if you get addicted to conducting surveys you can opt in to their professional version for a modest monthly fee.

Their kids are currently happy with Big Macs! Better use this free service quickly before the kids develop a taste for caviar!

How would you like a researcher who will present you with a two or three line summary from dozens of major movie critics on just about any movie out? Even on the web this might take a few hours -- until these clever folks designed a place where you can easily find the most important reviews for each new movie at a glance.

This one is easy to use. Just type in the movie name and up pops a short abstract from the reviews of major critics -- all organized and ranked. You will also find links accessing you to the full reviews.

The price is right. This service is among those that are still free!
