K9 Web Protection keeps your child safe on the internet

K9 Web Protection gives you peace of mind when it comes to the World Wide Web and your children. I've been using it for a while now, and I have to safe it works really well. You have options to filter the times they can surf, the level of protection, and what types of websites or specific sites you choose to block.

If you child tries to do something they shouldn't K9 stops them, and sends you an email informing you of the incident. Of course the best thing its free. So if your in need of internet filtering then K9 just may be for you.

If you have ever watched a re-run of the original Mission Impossible, then you know in the beginning of the show after the mission was received the tape would say " This message will self destruct in 5 secs". Well Privnote gives you something similar. It allows you to send a message to someone that you may not want to pass through email, and soon as they close out the window the link is destroyed and works no more. Privnotes Privacy Policy states (Notes are stored encrypted in our database which assures that nobody (including our administrators) can read them. This implies that there is no way to recover a note if the link is lost but, at the same time, it protects our users' privacy, which is our biggest concern and main priority.)

Now it doesn't stop the recipient from copying and pasting the note, but at least your not passing something through email that your I.T guys at work could read. You can also check a box that will let you know if the note has been read or not. Have some fun and give it a try.

Your Version- information like you want it

Your Version is a new search engine that tries to take all of the things you like about the web and combine them into one (searching for news, RSS feeds, web alerts, Twitter). Then it narrows down the web to the things you are most interested in. You have options for bookmarking and sharing, and connecting to some of your favorite things like Twitter and Facebook. I'm still checking it out, but if it lives up to the hype it may be another tool I use to gather information.
