Productivity Tools

Have been using a combination of Outlook Notes, tasks, reminders and One Note to keep track of my activities. And, its kinda bothersome to switch to Outlook, add my notes and add a reminder (I seriously wonder how would I know when I wanted to be reminded about a creative streak I just had ;-) )
So, this afternoon again set out on a hunt for the tools that will ease my STM Needless to say, I have a lot of websites open now, and am looking for features in some of the freewares (its impressive to see the rise in the number of functional freewares. From the wbloggar that I am using to post this entry to the productivity enhancer that I am looking at now, called Desktop Sidebar, the cyberworld has become a much more easier and healthier place to be. It just feels invigorating :)

So, these are some of the links google came up with.
CyberSecretary. No, I don't want a window popping up on my screen asking me "What would you like me to do, Walter?"
Next Please...
Desktop Sidebar. This is what their homepage has to say:
Overview:
The aim of Desktop Sidebar is provide you with instant access to some of your most important daily information.

Desktop Sidebar is integrated with Microsoft Outlook so you don't have to transfer their data to a new application. While using this application, you won't have to switch to Microsoft Outlook in order to check their schedule or tasks. Desktop Sidebar is docked to the edge of the screen and it is always visible, so to check your schedule, one look at Sidebar is enough!

Desktop Sidebar displays e-mails, appointments, task, notes, Messenger contacts, stock quotes, weather forecasts and constantly updated news from blogs,RSS newsfeeds and web pages. Finally,“Information at your fingertips" :)

Still not enough? You can control Windows Media Player or WinAmp from Sidebar, and Google is only one key click (Win+Q) from you.

Desktop Sidebar is fully customizable. With skin support, you can change the appearance of sidebar and can freely arrange panels by adding, removing, moving and grouping them together. All panels can be configured with a number of specific options.
