Aviary

Adobe’s Creative Suite is where it’s at if you want to get serious about any sort of professional work in the multimedia field. For this reason, and perhaps a few others (such as piracy or greed, whichever comes first), one would find that the prohibitive cost of entry as dictated by Adobe is forcing many to look for alternatives. The Aviary suite of web-based applications is hoping to change that, at least for small-time or amateur artists, by making its offerings widely accessible and free of charge. Users of the service are able to create, edit, enhance images and audio in relative depth, employing several features found in commercial products (layer editing comes to mind). Ease of use, coupled with unrivaled accessibility, is sure to make this a crowd favorite once more apps start to take off.

League of Legends

One thing that always stood out for me when it comes to games is innovation, that being easier said than found in a sea of generic MMORPGs. Luckily for us, the award-winning League of Legends mixes components of both the traditional RTS and RPG games. RTS-like, as in players being placed into two opposing teams and then set on a map to destroy enemy structures and ultimately their base with the help of NPC spawns. Yet familiar to RPG fans as each player gets to control a “champion” unit that starts at lvl.1 and level up as the match progresses. This uncanny combination promotes teamwork amongst the players in order to succeed, something you don’t see much other than the trivial raid on WoW. Last but not least, thanks to the absence of permanent avatars and a balanced micro-transaction model that doesn’t hold free players at a disadvantage, anyone may play knowing that they can have fun without being belittled.

ytmndYTMNDs, better known to the commoners as sites that mostly parodies celebrities or things of potential hilarity, has been making the internet comedy headlines for quite a while now. In a short sentence, the YTMND site allows registered users ┬áto create portals under the sub-domain and add static or animated pictures along with audio; this would inevitably make for some wild or perhaps offensive content that are actually funny in a way. Of course, persons of great popularity like Michael Jackson and Paris Hilton are just among the bunch to spawn endless amount of related portals by eager artists, but you might also find other pop culture references in there as well. After all this, you’re sure to appreciate the amount of internet phenomenons around the web, which there are many contributed to YTMND.

archiveLike Wikipedia, many nonprofit organizations exist to expand upon the freely available internet, which is exactly what archive.org is about. Preserving internet content for since 1996 and perhaps the only one of its kind at the time, there are over 150 million archived pages now in service and that’s only including the webpages. With that in mind, users can go back in time and see examples of existing websites in that era such as the official website of Microsoft. Besides that, users also have access to a myriad of media archives including audio and video files. All of the content hosted are legally viewable, meaning that they are either in public domain or licensed to allow free distribution. A great place to find content for a school project or your digital scrapbook, archive.org has just about everything and anything you need to get from the internet, and then some.

zoho_logoYou might be wondering what an oddly named logo that is, but rest assured the content that follows are nothing below the average. Launched in 2005 as an independent online office suite, Zoho now has over a dozen browser-based applications that users can access whenever and wherever there is an internet connection on their computer. It is set to compete with Microsoft Office as well as Google Docs in an all out office war, and does have its advantages over some of the more well known competitors. You can create and edit various files from MS office, OpenOffice as well making documents online from scratch and store them in the zoho servers. There are plenty of apps to sharpen your office skills, so make sure you put that word processing and presentation skills to good use.
