Memengo

Memengo Wallet™ – be free from memorizing passwords and other kinds of information.

Use it for remembering health insurance cards, frequent flier cards, etc etc

* It’s secure. You create and keep the “master key” (a passphrase of your choice) that encrypts your data. No one can read your data without that key, not even us.
* It’s reliable. We backup the data hourly and keep copies offsite – so that you don’t have to.
* It’s available. Your data is available to you anywhere there is a modern web browser. It’s also available to you on your mobile phone. Changes made in one propagate to the other.
* It’s convenient. A lot better than a disarray of yellow sticky notes.
* It’s cheap. In some cases, free.

Jack Cards – Connect Thoughtfully

A fantastic idea. A website that allows you to enter in your friends and family birthdays. It will remind you when their birthday is near, prompt you to buy a card, and then they’ll mail you the card, stamped, addressed, ready to go – all you do is sign it and mail it!

Owner of Chocolee Chocolates located in the South End of Boston Lee Napoli has more than two decades of baking experience.

All the chocolates at Chocolee are handcrafted by Lee and her associate Annie.

House Specials that are on hand at all times include 5 truffles:

* Hazelnut
* Espresso
* White Chocolate Pistachios
* Moroccan Mint
* Spicey Poblano Pepper.

House favorite chocolates at Chocolee include dark chocolate with salted caramel, dark chocolate with sesame caramel, dark chocolate with bourbon cherry and honey filling, and dark chocolate with chocolate ganache and candied ginger.

Local search site CitySquares growing fast – Lost Remote TV Blog

According to numbers released by Quantcast, CitySquares.com is the fastest-growing search site on the web. Of course, CitySquares.com is starting from a small base — it expanded in June from the Boston area to New York and all of New England — and that makes up the 1500% percent traffic jump. But there’s no denying the site has tremendous potential. (In fact, Clickz once said, “CitySquares may well be the future of local online advertising.”)
