  1. Schneier on Security: The Comparative Risk of Terrorism

    Some examples of how many Americans will die from different causes each day. eg, 50 murders, 85 suicides, 120 in traffic accidents. Every day.

  2. HomeAway Vacation Rentals: Beach Houses, Condos, Cabins, Villas & Vacation Rental Homes

    Could do with “sort by distance from a given point” and better maps of each place’s location, but handy otherwise.

  3. TinEye Reverse Image Search

    Supply it with an image and it will look for other uses of that image on the web. (via Meish)
