Happy Valentine's Day from Webware. We don't have chocolate, flowers, or cheesy cards for you, but we do have a roundup of Valentine's Day-related Web services and specials for you to get in touch with that special someone.
>> YouTube is offering video valentines. You've got six kitschy and humorous videos to choose from, featuring a slightly overweight cupid who causes more harm than good. For quick and easy personalized Webcam videos to your sweetheart, try out Viddler or Gabmail.
>> If your honey is stuck in the office all day, cheer him or her up with a text message. Joopz is offering virtual candy hearts by text and Web. The company also is letting texters use unlimited Web-to-text service for free all day (it's normally three bucks a month).
>> Send them a virtual gift on Facebook. With icons designed by Susan Kare, there are a number of love-centric options to choose from. Your first gift is free, and gifts are $1 each after that. For the month of February, Facebook is donating all proceeds to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
>> Flirt with a someone you don't know. Jumbuck's "Fast Flirting" service (not to be confused with speed dating) hooks you up with a stranger via text messaging for 10 minutes at a time. Hopefully it doesn't take you that long to figure out how to use your phone's keypad. Luckily there are preset message templates to get the conversation going. There's also a social networking component with groups, profiles, and user avatars.
>> Wishood gives you an online greeting card with a twist--you get to add a wish to it and the sender can "grant" it. Did you get them post-it notes instead of that magenta iPod Shuffle they wanted? They'll probably let you know. For other greeting card services, check out BlueMountain and eGreetings.
>> Buy your Web site a present. Pingdom is offering users a free year of uptime monitoring service, which makes sure your site is alive and well and lets you know if there are any problems. The service normally costs $120 a year.
