Search Engine Meets Encyclopedia

Encyclopedias may have been replaced by search engines, but there's one website out there that longs for an old fashioned kind of reference format.

Initially, kosmix.com presents itself as a typical search engine but the results page is a bit more organized and compact. As opposed to clicking through a number of pages to find what you need, kosmix.com breaks down your search into an easy view guide or dashboard, giving users a more encyclopedia entry look.

Red Carpet Look Without Going Into the Red

Cocomyles.com says you don't have to spend thousands of dollars for a red carpet ensemble.

President Howard Bender says, "We offer our celebrity dresses in any color anyone would want."

The concept? Design the dress you want for your prom, bridesmaids or special event. Select the color and style combination and dress detail you envision and modify the look based on your body type or take a cue from the visions seen at the Oscars and Emmys for a fraction of the price.

Bender says, "It's the availability of style, so for instance, if you're a size 2 you may want a strapless, t-length, but your friend who's a size 24 may not want the same style of dress."

Once you design the dress, it takes three weeks to have it delivered and shipping is free.
