ThinkMap Visual Thesaurus
This web-based tool ranks at the top of my "that's just cool" list this year. If you've ever struggled finding the best word for your marketing copy, or if you're working on naming a service, product, an event, or even your organization, the Visual Thesaurus is a great tool. Just type in a word like "peace" and it instantly creates a visual map of related words. Unlike a typical Thesaurus, the map shows the connections of the synonyms by physically branching them off. There's no software to install for this service, as it's entirely web based, and works just as effectively on a PC as it does a Mac. Thinkmap offers a free 14-day trial, which is a great way to check out how the service works. An annual subscription is very affordable at just about $20 per year.
WuFoo is a web-based, extremely affordable survey tool that offers much more customization and easy-to-use survey reporting tools than others I've tried. Their basic plan is free, and you can use their tutorials to get up and running with a customer survey in a manner of minutes.
