MyOpenID - If you don't know what OpenID is, think of it this way, one sign in authentication process for every website that supports it. Drupal 6 has it, Yahoo has it, lots of places have it - learn more about OpenID and get your own.
Tagurself - enter a feed link or a url and it generates a tag cloud for you.
TeamViewer - excellent remote desktop sharing software - and its free!
Microsoft SharedView - remote connection - sharing applications - great for training people how to do things remotely.
