Funny Personalized Money, Playing Cards, and More

Using free pictures editors, provided by online services, allowing using your own photos to make funny images, became very popular. In this post, I would like to present one more new site, giving you multiple opportunities to make fun on your friends and on yourself. Site use 4 different types of the templates to generate funny collages.

Personalized Money

You have multiple templates with paper money from different countries, like Antarctica, Canada, China, Russia, USA, and other. Simply embed you photo and create a new image. It is unlikely, that you can use the currency in financial operations, but you definitely can bring some fun to your friends.

Personalized Playing Cards

You have multiple templates with playing cards for Jacks, Kings, and Queens. You can simply embed your photo, and using moving and enlarging operations, fit to the opening.

You have three basic templates: Budweiser, Corona Extra, and Heineken. Here, you cannot embed your picture, but you can modify the text on the logo in different ways.

 Personalized iPhone Application

I will this section review, since I do not use iPhone. But if you do, you can try it.

This section has nothing to do with images. Enter name of your beloved, and an optional gift you want to present her/him, and the poem generator will make the genius creation for you. You can choose the best fitting lines up to the moment you are completely satisfied.

This section will let you do several unusual effects to your text. Create a funny greeting card, love letter, or invitation, and spice your text with provided effects.

When I was testing the service, the server response was a bit slow on my Internet Explorer based Maxthon; however, you might find the delay acceptable if you need these effects for your project, postcard, or joke. When I tested the service on Chrome, the response was much faster.

Online Backup Services from Comcast

Comcast, my home Internet provider, decided to increase the spec of its offerings about half a year ago. For all its high-speed Internet customers, it is providing the opportunity for secure file storage through online backup service called Secure Backup & Share. This service is powered by Mozy, a well-known online backup provider currently owned by EMC. It was a CNET Webware 100 winner of 2009.

According to Mozy, some 140,000 hard drives crash in the United States every week. Files can also be lost other ways, too, including human error, when a computer is stolen or misplaced, and from viruses. Comcast says that it wants to help reduce the risk of data loss and is encouraging consumers to back up and secure their digital files.

The company gives all of its existing customers 2GB of online storage for free with the launch of the Secure Backup & Share service. Those who want to use more storage space can opt for a few different plans, including a 50GB storage plan for $4.99 monthly or $49.99 annually, and a 200GB storage plan for $9.99 monthly or $99.99 annually.

According to Comcast, Secure Backup & Share, apart from keeping files off-site in case of disaster, also allows customers to share files via a personalized Web site. Sharable content includes photos, videos, music, and documents.
