Photography uses for Google Alerts

If you have a google account, you can use one of their free services to keep up to date on photography related items on the web. That service is called "Google Alerts". This service allows you to enter topics of interest for daily, weekly, or monthly update from Google. Google searches the web for new links related to your topic and sends an email with the links each day, week, or month as you have selected. The topics I have setup for alerts include:
1) Olympus
2) Photo Contests
3) Lightroom Plugins
4) Photoshop Plugins
5) Adobe Air apps
So each day, I receive emails with new links on these topics. Most emails have 3-5 links, so it is easy to get through them quickly. This is yet another way to keep informed.
