We all love those posts…the ones where there are links to cool stuff we either want to know, we never knew existed, or love to read about.

Well, we’re adding a new feature post called ‘Click That Link’, which is a complied list of websites for cool and interesting things you’ll want to you know about.

TECH

DifferenceBetween.net – It is exactly what it says it is. It the place to go to find out the difference between similar  terms and objects. Whether it be food, gadgets, cars, tests, operating systems, you name it, it has the difference. You can get lost for hours learning cool stuff.

General-Search.com – File hosting services contain millions of files shared by people. In order to search you only have to type in the file you are looking for in the search bar. Additionally, you can narrow down search by specifying which, from the three file hosting sites you would like to search in. You can subscribe to an RSS feed of a search to track for updates when new files come up.
