Tiny URLs


I love it when a company finds something painful, or sometimes just annoying and/or awkward, and solves it.

Take TinyURL.com, for example.

Every try to send a Web link to a friend that’s 8-10 lines long? Especially when you’re on a shopping site, sometimes the URL has lots of information embedded, such that the actual Web address for that specific page is hundreds of characters long.

Not anymore. Just plug that link into a simple tool on TinyURL.com, and it creates a MUCH shorter link for you.

It’s really just a redirect service, but isn’t it brilliant?
