ZumoDrive 
www.zumodrive.com

Looking for a way to access all your work files from home without having to store them on a flash drive or mail them to yourself? ZumoDrive is your answer. This simple-to-use service enables users to sync and store their files in the cloud (2 GB of free storage), creating a type of online repository that is accessible from a multitude of devices.
 
Download the application (9.2 MB), select your files and upload them to ZumoDrive to access them from a netbook, notebook, iPhone or Android-powered smartphone. Also check out Dropbox.com for a similar option. 
 
Red Ice Creations 
 
Ancient civilisation, geopolitics, conspiracy, secret societies, parallel universes - Red Ice Creations covers it all. With their motto of “We present, you decide” RIC brings a different perspective to some commonly held beliefs.
 
Also check out their biweekly podcasts (Red Ice Radio) where they talk to interesting characters such as author Graham Hancock, researcher Rick Strassman and Egyptologist Robert Bauval. 
 
 
Quake Live
 
Looking for some old school gaming action? The classic FPS game Quake is available on the net as the free-to-play title, Quake Live, directly in your browser. Before you’re able to fire up that Railgun, your skills will be assessed and you would have to undergo a training session in order to be matched up with opponents that are on a similar level. Now bring me my Lighting Gun. 
 
 
Rolling Stone
 
Rolling Stone magazine is probably one of the most famous popular culture magazines out there, covering not only music but also politics, movies and social issues since 1967. Their website aims to keep the stone rolling (we couldn't resist) by giving users in-depth coverage of the greatest musicians, the most iconic movies and of course the most relevant social issues of our time. A recent article for example lead to the firing of US General Stanley McChrystal, and let’s not forget the late great Hunter S. Thompson’s Gonzo articles. 
 
For a more music focused site you can point your browser to the absurdly hip Pitchfork.
