Hire a House Cleaner or Personal Assistant by the Hour From an App

Find yourself in dire need of help while pressed for time? Not everyone needs, wants, nor can afford a regular house cleaner or personal assistant, but there's now an app that can bring in some extra help by the hour for those emergencies (or to stand in line for the iPhone 6 or Playstation 4)... 

EXEC was started by Justin Kan, the same mind behind Justin.tv, aimed at busy (and probably well off) San Francisco tech types who need help getting things done when they need to be in five places at once. Errands, housekeeping, and even waiting in line for you at product launches...you can hire an Exec to run any errand at $25/hour between 9am to 9pm from the comfort of a free iOS app.

So, for example, a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom home in Alamo Square, San Francisco (my former neighborhood year's ago) would cost $117.00 to clean using the  housecleaning service. What's nice is the service charges a flat fee according to number of bathrooms and bedrooms instead of square footage, and the whole range of standard typical tasks like dusting, vacuuming, decluttering, and putting things away are included. They even list organizing cables...how perfect for Bay Area types.

The only catch is EXEC is currently only available at:
