So i decided to try out hunch.com as I am bored as all hell @ work.

hunch

Hunch asks you some questions to get to know you, then based on your answers throws out a couple of responses to your original question. I found out that my ideal vacation spot is Tokyo, which isn’t too far from what I’ve originally planned, so good going Hunch!

So far it seems like the service has only certain topics that you can use hunch for but it will grow as the user base grows.

However it is interesting to think that something like this may be the future of consulting? (Not hunch specifically but the hive continues to grow and who knows how web based everything will become). Hunch itself is more than likely screwed if they don’t add some sort of twitter or facebook connect functionality to it.

Worth a visit if you’re bored.

radiosure RadioSure combs the analog world for real radio stations from all over the world and easily listened to on your desktop from anywhere. Not only does it have 12000+ radio stations available for listening but it’s got a nifty feature to allow you record and it will automatically splice the songs between ads and label it accordingly. And lightweight as hell to boot.

SICK!

omegle
So last night bored as a bat I tried out Omegle.com, a web based chat service that randomly connects you a one on one chat with a stranger.

Surprisingly I haven’t seen this concept tried before and it’s quite good fun.

A couple of interesting highlights –
A male stranger who started off the conversation with “I need buttsex”.
A 31 year old swedish stranger who attempted to prank me as ‘Daphne the Armenian villager from Ptzuk’, a quick wiki search rendered her full of it very quickly and after a good conversation I got to pranking myself as Burunsi the Ethiopian gun smuggler.
A 20 year old brasilian girl who started off the conversation with “I need a husband” who I planned my future wedding with.
