Life Hacking 

I am always feeling overwhelmed by choices in life and always looking for work-arounds to increase my personal productivity. I have recently come across two wonderful sites that I especially found useful and entertaining.

"Lifehacker makes getting things done easy and fun. Delving deep into the technoweb, Lifehacker brings back simple and totally life-altering tips and tricks for managing your information and time. Editor Gina Trapani, coder and computer expert, saucily deciphers the latest in personal productivity technology and reveals the million ways hardware and software can improve our busy lives. At this wild moment in the development of human-oriented technology, Lifehacker is your own personal early adopter, here to guide you through the onslaught of the new. The world is full of fascinating problems waiting to be solved: Lifehacker can help."

What I liked about it:

The site is well organized and well written (it has an editor and two associate editors). There are links to tons of useful downloads. Click on the Life hacks link for non-computer life hacks -- excellent!

"This site dedicated to life hacks. Danny O’Brien linked together the words “life” and “hacks” and created a phrase that enable to describe any hacks, tips and tricks that get things done quickly by automating, increase productivity and organizing. This site is built around this theme. It is a frequently updated, to provide news and articles which able you to get things done in a faster pace."

What I liked about it:

The site is well organized and well written. As a writer, I especially liked Permission to Suck and 50 Tools Which Can Help You in Writing.
