It started with TinyURL, URL aliasing/shortening has become big business with similar sites growing out of the woodwork(See URL Shortening - History). With other unrelated services following the trend, like scr.im(email aliasing) and twt.fm(promotes music), adding value to support our slowly growing twittering society. Bit.ly is one such revolutionary child; but this child has grown big enough to even rival TinyURL.

More and more I find myself using online versions of my computer's desktop. Having been hosted on a remote server I enjoy; savings in storage space, automatic backups, safety from physical hardware damage(like for some of my friends affected by Typhoon Ondoy) and ready support(depends on the service provider). Though you do need to constantly have a decent internet connection, for me it works just fine. If you're interested, read on!.
