Ever pull up a site with content you wanted to read, but had endure the obnoxious music it was streaming, which was playing over the music you were already playing in iTunes (or whatever your "music jukebox" of choice is, but come on, it's iTunes, isn't it?)? Surely there's a way to mute that unsolicited music even if the site doesn't have a mute button. Browsing the web is all about you being in control, right?

I'm the grocery shopper in my family. I actually enjoy shopping for food quite a bit. What I hate is wasting time looking for things, and not getting everything I need on my first pass through the store. Now, I go to the same store over and over, and I still can't remember where they put the capers. What I need is a map of the store, so I can align my grocery list with my actual shopping route . I've been meaning to make my own, but why don't grocery stores provide these for customers? Wouldn't that be a great help for regular shoppers who plan their grocery lists out in advance, and encourage repeat visits? They could have copies available in store and have downloadable PDFs on their websites. Seems like a relatively simple tool to differentiate a store from the competition. Do any stores you know provide these? Would you use them if they did?
