Webscape - screaming mobiles and pothole gardening


Kate Russell gives her latest selection of the best sites on the World Wide Web.

WIKIWORLDBOOK (http://wikiworldbook.com)

WikiWorldBook.com enables users to be found and contacted easily online without having to reveal their e-mail address.

Users who create a profile in this virtual contact book can also link to as much or as little of their online presence as they want.

There is no need to register in order to contact someone listed.

LOOKOUT (https://www.mylookout.com/)

Lookout is a great app available for backing up and protecting most smartphones - the iPhone is excluded.

Once activated, GPS tracking will helps locate a lost phone and you can even ask the website to make your handset "scream". Great function, if you lose it down the back of the sofa.

As well as regular virus sweeps, all your phone's data will be automatically backed up online, so you can reinstate it to a new handset should the need arise.

RAINY MOOD (www.rainymood.com)

Rainy Mood simply plays a 30 minute looped recording of a raging thunderstorm.

The site also suggests some rainy soundtracks to help you get a better night's sleep.

THE POTHOLE GARDENER (http://thepotholegardener.com)

The Pothole Gardener is the home of a blogger who's been busy planting miniature gardens in potholes.

This guerrilla gardener got so fed up with running into potholes on his bicycle that he decided to make them into features, in the hope of making them more visible.
