To forget is human. To forget to buy the ice cream sandwich we promised the kids. To call home after the gig. To pack sun cream for the holiday. The place we put the piece of paper with the phone number we need to ring.
But even if we had the IQ of Albert Einstein we could still struggle. Once he forgot his own home address when sitting in a cab, and another time the destination he was travelling to on a train. But anyway. As long as we do not forget to grab our mobiles and tap Google Keep, or to add a note online, we are safe.

So you want to sign-up for a free online service or try a new website, but they are asking you to fill out a long form with all kinds of details: name, address, ZIP code, phone, email, birthday, and more. But you want to protect your privacy and not give away all this personal information.
Use Fake Name Generator, a very easy to use online tool that automatically generates an entire fake identity. You get a name, address, city, a matching ZIP code, phone number, e-mail address, birthday, occupation, company, vehicle, and even physical traits like blood type, weight and height.
Go ahead and try Scroll Kit: if you know how to browse the Internet and drag things around with your mouse or finger, then you can build your own webpage. You don’t need technical or design skills.
You get a blank canvas where you can add pictures, text, shapes, or draw with your mouse. Then you have a button called Publish. That’s it, you now have a website on the Internet.
Do you want to see how a particular website looked like in the past? One month ago, 1 year ago, or even 10 years ago? Or do you want to be reminded about how your own website or homepage on the Internet looked like when you were just a freshman out of college?
Then use the Wayback Machine website/tool from the Internet Archive. Just type an Internet address like http://www.google.com, and click on “Take Me Back” button. The Wayback Machine will show you a timeline and a calendar of dates when that webpage was archived and saved. Click on any date to see how the website looked like on that specific day in history.
Micropayments startup Gumroad wants to help people sell anything they create, without having to set up their own store or use an existing commerce marketplace.

Or physical things like music albums or T-shirts.

There are a lot of places on the Internet that ask you for an e-mail address. A lot of websites require registration in order to let you access their best areas, their files or free downloads. Entering your own e-mail address may open the door to receiving countless of unwanted email messages in the future.
So if you are sure you won’t need future notifications or communication with a website or service, and only want to quickly register and receive the first few messages, use a disposable email service like 10 Minute Mail.
