Website of the Day: Alerts

I get all sorts of reminders and alerts sent to my email inbox and my cell phone. The problem? It's hard to keep them all updated and organized. The wonderful Remember the Milk will send you reminders that you create in a variety of formats, but what if you want notifications like weather forecasts automatically sent to you — without having to set the notification up yourself?! There's a new site called Alerts! (I'll try to contain my excitement).


Once you set up a free account, Alerts acts as your personal manager, sending things like birthday notifications, price changes on products, traffic alerts, wakeup calls, and daily horoscopes. You get to choose how you want your notification delivered — be it via email, text message, instant messaging, or even voice. . . helping you manage your mismanaged life!
