What's a mashup? Well, on the web, Wikipedia defines it like this, "A mashup, in web development, is a web page, or web application, that uses content from more than one source to create a single new service displayed in a single graphical interface." Here's a good example, where you can enter any address you wish and get three graphical representations, side by side, with one click.

First you will see a regular street map allowing you to zoom in or out to aid you with pinpointing the address locally or globally. This view can be manipulated in all the usual ways - including a satellite view.

On the same page you can maneuver around in street view to get a good sense of the structure and neighborhood. Still on the same page you will see a vivid bird's eye view of the same location -- in all its glory.

Great place to start when checking out a location!

You're surfing the web and come upon a site that promises some content that interests you. But they will not let you get to it until you reveal a bunch of personal information. You hesitate because you don't want to get bombarded with spam or have your information sold to the guys with the black hats.

These folks come to the rescue with a system that generates a random spoof name (Lamont Cranston, for example), address, username, password, and a phony baloney (but usable) email address. They let you save the generated random profile for 30 days so you can bookmark and use it for that period. After 30 days Lamont's profile is deleted and disappears forever.

Tricky - with no cost to you -- and it will give you a bit of security, serenity and peace of mind.

If you use Wi-Fi to connect any of your computers, their printers, gadgets, etc., or if you suspect that your neighbors or other rascals are tapping into your connections, then you'll like this little one trick pony.

Just put a shortcut to this Wi-Fi detective on your desktop, and any time you give it a click you will be presented with a list of all the connections currently using your account. First you'll see your stuff - your computer - your printer - your router etc. If anything pops up that isn't yours, you've caught a thief.

Simple -easy and, best of all, it's on the house.

How'd you like an assistant to keep statistical track of all the good things that are going on in the world at this very minute? Ok - you have one right here.

And (like the TV ads proclaim) - that's not all. The meters will show you that over 60 million cars have been produced this year. Guess how many bicycles. Twice as many - over 120 million. Really!
