This is a quick, simple, free app for your computer that adjusts your screen's color and brightness to the time of day. During daytime hours, the screen is colored to work best in sunlight, at night, the screen is tinted to warmer hues to emulate indoor lighting.  The color adjustment is supposedly better on your eyes than staring at a normal monitor...especially at night.

Its free for PCs and Macs

There are similar adjustment apps for mobile devices in the App Store and pla.

The idea behind this social alarm clock is: people waking people.

Nobody likes the sound of an alarm beeping. This app replaces that sound with the soothing sound of your telephone ringing.  *Because, let's face it, when you're in a deep sleep and the phone rings, you're not going back to sleep for a while.

Set your alarm for 6am, another Wakie member will call you at 6am. The call is automatically dropped after 60 seconds and your phone number is never visible to the person calling.

As a member, you also have the choice to be the waker, not just the wakee.

The app is free on all platforms.

As we get into 2015 and start work on our resolutions to lose weight, here's an app that can help you find something healthy to eat when you're dining out.  Search for a place to eat by location or search for something healthy on the menu.  The app allows you to filter the menu by calorie count or Weight Watcher's "Points", filter by your specific diet or dietary needs; by cuisine or type of dish; or use their most popular filter:  "Not a salad".  The app gives you nutrition information for your meal and also offers customer reviews of the restaurant and the dish itself.

HealthyOut is available for free on iTunes and Google Play.

This is a web site, its a phone number (877-U-Be-My-DD), it has apps (free for all devices).

The service has a couple levels of accommodation. There is the Personal Driver service where you schedule an evening with a driver who meets you, then drives your car anywhere you want, as long as you want, then returns you and gives back your keys. In Cleveland that will run you about $17.50 per hour.

They also offer Pick-Up service, which is just that. You realize you're drunk, you call them, two drivers show up. One drives you home in your car, the other follows. This level costs $25 + $3.45 per mile.

The drivers are background checked and insured. If you're thinking about this for New Year's Eve, you're probably better to make an appointment today as wait times for a pick-up tomorrow night will likely be long.
