Have your e-mails read to you!
We often complain about being run off our feet and not having the time to do anything, but secretly we know that it's a question of organization. Sometimes, there are tools that can make life easier. Everyday, we are submerged by a pile of e-mails, but don't necessarily have the time to deal with all of them. There are agents that can help you, by managing your mailbox.
This type of agents are known as “mail agents”. They alert you to the arrival of new messages and read them aloud to you. Some of these agents can also read Web pages, documents, help files or any other text. They are not just utilities for reading mail, but often have other handy “reminder” functions, such as the birthdays you mustn't forget, important meetings, etc. In a way, they act as virtual assistants.
Also, a practical aspect for anyone who has problems with their view, they save straining your eyes while reading on the screen.
Bring a touch of fantasy to your mailbox, have your e-mails read out to you by intelligent agents and make receiving messages more fun! You'll be surprised how you can get attached to these little characters.
There are a number of agents to download and test on AgentLand:
ARTICLE OF THE WEEK
> Agentwebranking: know where you stand with the search engines
Agentwebranking is a very useful tool for anyone who is interested in monitoring their Web site's ranking - or those of competitors - in the leading search engines. It gives you the big picture of just how visible your Web site is.
> Chatterbox Challenge Update
The big moment has arrived. Starting from 58 contestants, after two
months of competition, one bot has been chosen as the winner of the
2002 Chatterbox Challenge. Be the first to find out who is this
year's best overall chatterbot:
>> Computer Monitoring <<
Is your boss spying on you? Has a hacker secretly slipped a spy program into your PC? SpyCop scans your computer for spyware programs and detects any unusual activity within your Windows registry. SpyCop can find over 270 spy programs. It will detect the spy, tell you when it was installed, and optionally disable it! It's your privacy!
> Online Recorder
Online Recorder records and spies on everything AOL has to offer including emails, websites, instant messages (AOL, Yahoo, and Microsoft Messenger), chat conversations, and more... It also records every keystroke made so you never miss a thing.
> Keyboard Monitor
Do you want to know what other people type on your computer when you are away from it? The Keyboard Monitor records every keystroke made on your computer on every window, even on protected boxes. This program is completely undetectable and starts up whenever your computer starts up. See everything being typed, emails, messages, documents, web pages, usernames, passwords, and more.
>> Games <<
SeaWar: TheBattles looks like a beautiful toy and makes you want to play again and again. Fine tuned ships sway among smoothly moving sea waves. Outbursts on the left, ahead and suddenly a bright explosion in the middle of the ship. A puff of smoke and there's the dead ship-frame at the end - it's the greatest!
> Orb Rush
Looking for a game that will give you a quick gaming fix without the kludginess and dead weight of retail games? Then give Orb Rush a try! Comparable to Chu Chu Rocket's Puzzle Mode, Orb Rush will have you coming back for more mind bending puzzles.
> Arcade Lines
Arcade Lines is an extremely addictive and very relaxing puzzle game using brilliant graphics, pulsating music and a great variety of different game modes. It is very easy to learn, but not so easy to master! You'll be hooked for hours.
Aqualines is an action packed, yet thought provoking computer game. Your reaction times will improve and your thought processes sharpen each time you play.
>> Search <<
> Net Vestigator
Net Vestigator is a program which offers you access to the databases used by professional investigators. Some of the information you will be granted access to is difficult for even government agencies to find! It's safe and legal to use. With Net Vestigator, you can do searches without anyone ever knowing!
