Writer Girl, Not Techie Girl
I can’t hide it. I’m a bit of a software maven, but no one in their right mind would ever call me a techie . . . That makes for so many reasons that I value my techie friends so much. One is they know where to find cool widgets, plug-ins, and online tools that I haven’t discovered. TechZ mentioned this one among a whole list of cool links on his blog TechZOnline.net last week.
Great Find: PDF Online
Audience/Topic: Anyone who wants to share ebooks, white papers, or other documents
Content: PDF Online is a free service that offers more than you might have hoped for — a quick and free PDF conversion online service, which means it works from wherever you might be. The process is simple. There is no installation. Submit documents to their server. PDF.Online generates and emails you the finished file.
What’s their rationale for providing a free service?
First of all, it doesn’t cost us anything to run this service. Developed using easyPDF SDK (our proprietary PDF Engine), PDF Online server can process thousands of PDF conversions per day (with 99% success rate) and runs 24×7 with no human operator.
Secondly, it’s our way of saying thank you for helping us improve our easyPDF SDK’s performance and value to a level no one, not even AdobeÃÂ®, can match.
Of course, they also want you to buy their server and desktop applications, their printer driver, and their other products. Still there’s no heavy sales pitch — just presentations.
Take a look. Click the title below. You never know when you need a quick .pdf file.
Now I need that .pdf plug-in. . . .
