www.Run.com is good, but I prefer
due to it's better user interface, the fact it does more activities, bigger online community and number of routes, and better elevation info.

I love Jott
You use it and your cellphone to make notes, record tasks, calendar events and other things. It converts speech to text which it uses in concert with websites like "google calendar", "remember the milk", zillow, Sandy, Blogger, etc.
Lets say you're driving around looking at houses. You see a house, call the free Jott number and tell it to check Zillow for house prices. The info is then sent to your cell as a text message. Or you're driving around and remember something you need to do. You just call Jott and leave a note. It can then send it to web based task manager like Sandy, or Remember The Milk.

One problem with Newsmap. It seems as if one should be able to click on a headline/story and read the whole article. This will work but only with Internet Explorer. Firefox does nothing. At least, that’s the result of my testing.
