Site5

Site5

http://www.site5.com

Web Hosting , Technology
I've been using Site5 since 2007, and I couldn't be happier. Their prices are very fair (especially when you consider that you can host multiple websites on the same plan), and their customer service is fast and reliable. The dashboard controls are a little daunting, but once you get the hang of them they're great.

Overall, highly recommended.

Nick.com

Nick.com

http://www.nick.com

Film & Television , Kids
Nick.com was a necessary evil, because I wanted to watch The Legend of Korra. Suffice it to say, the only good thing about that show ending is that I don't have to wrangle with Nick's video player anymore...
This is a fantastic webseries! Absolutely hilarious, and a great way to figure out which video games you might like to check out. The cartoony visuals are matched perfectly with the mile-a-minute narration, and the witty satire and blunt criticism comes at you so fast it builds on its own comedy like a Oscar Wilde play.

It's worth noting, though, that Yahtzee is VERY critical, so don't bypass a game just because he tears it apart: in three years, I think I've seen two unequivocally positive reviews.

My only complaint would be that the website is super-basic, not allowing for much other than a list of recent videos without much design or elegance. It's hard to complain too much about this, seeing as how it's just a sub-section of the larger Escapist website, but still it would be nice to see some differentiation for the webseries.

Geeks are Sexy

Geeks are Sexy

http://www.geeksaresexy.net

News , Geek
Geeks are Sexy is a great source for technology, science, and geek culture news posts. They often have things before I've seen them shared anywhere else, and their posts are almost always of a much more unique and interesting nature than those found on similar sites.

With a clean layout and a good system of organization and tagging, GAS is a great site to keep up with, and a great way to break the monotony of a boring day.

MacRumors

MacRumors

http://www.macrumors.com

News , Technology
There are many, many sites on the internet focusing on Apple-related rumors and news, but none come close to MacRumors. It's clearly and concisely written, utterly comprehensive, and yet never spammy. My go-to spot for Apple news.

MOO

MOO

http://www.moo.com

Print , Career
Moo.com is my go-to spot for business cards. I especially love the MiniCards, which people always comment on when I slide one out of the plastic holder on my keychain. 100 minicards are just $20, so it's also great for a small business looking for professional quality cards without spending a lot. The cards are quite thick and of excellent quality.

The site is user-friendly and intuitive, although designing your own cards can sometimes entail a lot of back-and-forthing through different pages. But still, definitely worth a look! I've been a customer several times already, and I don't see myself stopping now.

Biteable

Biteable

http://www.biteable.com

Graphic Design , Video Streaming
Biteable is a GREAT website. It allows you to generate hyper-professional and engaging websites with ease. In fact, one such video was used as the intro video for the official FlitterWeb Kickstarter campaign. We've gotten overwhelmingly positive responses to it!

At time of writing, Biteable is still in beta, so some features will no doubt be improved in the future. The render times can be frustrating and more customization options would be nice, and the overall design of the website is basic to the point of seeming empty, but these are minor quibbles. Overall, it does what it's supposed to do, and what it's supposed to do is wonderful.

I cannot recommend Biteable highly enough! Great for anyone who wants an intro video, pitch video, or any other kind of explanation paired with cute and engaging animations.
This is a really great podcast! The site is a little sparse, but that's ok: we're really just in it for the info. The narrative is clear and interesting, and the content is fascinating. Highly recommended!

Cracked

Cracked

http://www.cracked.com

Comedy , Lists
Cracked is a hilarious way to waste some time. And the best part is that you'll often actually learn something while you do! Their lists are a great format, and unlike a lot of other sites, you don't have to click through a million pages to read them: most are just split in half onto two pages.

Another great thing for the writers out there: Cracked accepts submissions! It can be tough to get your article through the rigorous editing process, but if you do, not only do you get to be internet-famous, but you also get cold hard cash!

Definitely check it out, Cracked is one of my favorites!

Stack Overflow

Stack Overflow

http://www.stackoverflow.com

Programming , Q&A
Stack Overflow is a GREAT website for anyone trying to work on web design or programming. It's a wonderful Q&A format, and there are plenty of people there to answer your questions. There is sometimes some harshness directed at newbies, and those who don't follow the strict rules of the site are corrected quickly, but overall it's my #1 spot when I have a bug I can't fix.

Highly recommended.

Strange decision to use Comic Sans as the font for the titles of the website headings.

I could not find a way to navigate away from the homepage to any deeper links with more information. One would expect that the left skyscraper section would be hotlinked to more examples.

I like this company. Their professional staff and advisers always provide quality services. Booking and related to it processes take not more than several business days, that's why I can consult them right before my trips. Recommend it!
