Frustrated by your Rubik's Cube (or Sudokube, for that matter)? Don't be, because this enterprising little Web applet can solve your Rubik's Cube for you. All you have to do is translate your current cube layout into the diagram, hit solve, and it will spit back turn-by-turn directions for restoring the monocolor sides to your overly rotated puzzle polyhedron. Is that cheating? Almost certainly, but then so is using Google to answer all those trivia questions I ask, and that never stopped anybody. Found via SFSignal.
