As a sequel to yesterday's post about free stuff, today I bring you more free stuff! And now, without further ado, let's get on to (free) business. :)
Top 10 Free Ebooks for Bloggers
First, let's start off with the Top 10 Free E-books For Bloggers @ Mashable. I won't pretend to have heard of all the names on that list, but there are a few I do recognize, like the (in)famous John Chow, seomoz.org and the quirky Seth Godin. They are all unique in their own ways, but they have one thing in common - they are popular on the net and have the stats to prove it. Let's not forget the (obscene amount of) money that they're currently making. There are probably a few killer tips that they aren't sharing, but as conventional wisdom goes, some help is better than none.
Next up, is a site providing free maps in several image formats. On that site, you can find maps of individual countries, states or continents. A quick glance reveals that other than .gif, his maps are available in Adobe Illustrator EPS format, so you can edit them if you have Adobe Illustrator installed. The webmaster, Keisuke Inoue, is Japanese so you may find some Engrish there, but you should be able to get the gist of what he's saying. Besides, there's not much to understand except that the maps are free for any type of use. :)
The last stop for the day is Rememble. No, that isn't a typo. Rememble is a newly launched site that aims to store all your digital memories. Here's the official word from the Rememble press release:
Rememble enables users to collect and store digital data -- membles -- online from a range of different devices such as pcís, digital cameras and mobile phones, through an online facility that offers limitless memory storage space.
Examples of membles are text messages, emails, images or video clips.
Rememble has a free ad-supported and paid subscription service, but the paid subscription isn't up yet. Not that it matters since we're talking about free stuff here. I took a quick look around Rememble and liked some of the stuff I saw. The signup was easy and painless, requiring only an email address and password. Some cool features I spotted include the membleline (a time line for your membles, see the picture below), uploading membles via SMS/MMS and Flickr and Twitter integration. Like many sites, social networking has also been thrown in via Groups and Friends.
Since Rememble is still in its initial stages, there are some kinks to work out. For example, blog posts can't be added to your Rememble account at the moment. Also, SMS/MMS charges for overseas users could get pretty high, seeing that there's only one number for sending the SMS/MMS. Finally, freeloaders (that's what free users are called in Rememble) are limited to 30 images, 30 videos and 0 audio a month. In my opinion, this takes away much of the fun of Rememble.
Edit: Bonus freebie! Tons of Free Screensavers @ Smashing Magazine.
