read attached pdf without acrobat reader

gmail pdf Thanks to Gmail's new service, it is possible to read PDF files attached to e-mails without the need of saving them and opening them with Acrobat Reader. I tried the new feature and it worked flawless as long as I could test it. As you can see in the picture, all you have to do is to click on "view" to read the PDF file.

Marvel gives you the chance of creating your own superhero (with elements taken from several existing ones). I designed a winged punisher with adamantium claws, now I'm a complete person.

create short urls

Sometimes it is quite handy to use a shorter url instead of a long one. Why you have to type http://java.sun.com/javafx/faqs.jsp instead of http://abe5.com/c43?
There are several websites that offer this short url generation service for free. TinyURL is one of the most populars, but I'd recommend Abe5 that offers shorter urls.
