Software: More Search Options

 Talking of Outlook functionality, 80-20 have just come out with a new version of Retriever, a great search engine that integrates with Outlook (but also works from Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Internet Explorer, Windows Explorer, System Tray and Task Bar.)     Definitely worth a look. Also, the folks at IdeaLab have come up with a new beta version of their search product X1, which they seem pretty excited about. If you’re still looking for the perfect way to find stuff on your hard drive, give it a shot. There’s a free version which may or may not come with Adware; I haven’t checked what theirContinue readingSoftware: More Search Options

 Bored with Outlook, Lotus Organizer and the Palm Desktop, I’ve spent the past month or so with Calendarscope, and have to say it’s excellent.

Loose Wire — Organize Me: Give us some software that really makes the information age meaningful   By Jeremy Wagstaff from the 3 April 2003 edition of the Far Eastern Economic Review, (c) 2003, Dow Jones & Company, Inc. Every time I visit a computer shop I get nostalgic for the dotcom boom. In those days people with money were throwing their cash at people with ideas, however silly, with interesting results. Sure, most of the ideas were so dumb they never saw the harsh light of day — or the harsh light of a business model — but at least some new stuff wasContinue readingColumn: search software
