  • The Internet Archive: How did it all look?

    The Internet -- and content therein -- is constantly evolving and changing to improve functionality, incorporate new services, tap new revenue streams including advertisement and revamp designs. But what did websites look like in the past?

    If you're interested, indexes over 240 billion web pages, archives from 1996 to this year. The Wayback system can be accessed by typing in the page where you want to begin, and then select the archive dates you're interested in.

  • Pay someone $5 for a random job

    For the odd jobs that you need completed, Fiverr lets you pay someone else to do it for you.

    The website allows you to sign up and offer a 'gig' for under $5. 48 hours after someone finishes a job, wages are paid to an account which can then be withdrawn through PayPal.

    Jobs vary; from choosing a skincare regimen for you to shooting business clips. In other cases, you can have a member of the Maasai pose with your name on a board, you can be taught how to moonwalk, or get someone complete your homework assignments for you.
