Friday QuickCast Special #10: Taxis, Drinks, And Tees

26Sep08

In this QuickCast special, I’ll show you some sites that can help you get around town, monitor your drinking habits, and make you look good at the same time.

Taxime is a free service that will give you an estimate of what it will cost for you to get from point A to point B.  It’s as simple as entering in your starting point and destination and allows you to adjust the fare rates according to your city.  You can also get directions on Google Maps so you’ll know if your cab driver is trying to pull a fast one on you.  There’s nothing to sign up for and Taxime is also iPhone compatible.

DrinkLogger is a service that allows you to keep track of your BAC (blood alcohol content) by keeping track of all of the alcoholic beverages you consume in a night (or day, if you’re a day drinker).  After you sign up for an account, you can start logging in your drinks every time you throw one back.  You can customize each drink for size and alcohol content and save drinks into your account for future use.  You can text your drinks in as well, so you can use it right from the bar which can help determine whether or not you should be behind the wheel.  What I learned is, that for my height and weight, I can’t have more then two Stella Artois and expect to pass a breathalyzer.

The last site in this QuickCast Special has nothing to do with drinking or driving but has everything to do with making you look good while drinking and driving.  That probably doesn’t sound right, but you know what I mean.  PleaseDressMe is a search engine for t-shirts.

There are many different sites out there that specialize in graphic tees, but in order to find what you’re looking for you need to perform a search on each one.  PleaseDressMe optimizes your search by crawling all of these sites at once, based on what you’re looking for.  You can search by keyword, tag, color, price range, or “stumble” through random tees.  After you find what you’re looking for, you’ll be brought to the original site where you can purchase it.

To see all of these great services in action, watch the screencast below:
