The Sinch is not much to look at, we'll give you that, but it is rather an interesting little thing. Intended to keep your headphone cable a little more tidy, it's just a couple of slender magnets encased in a rubber band with a hole punched on one end. It's a remarkably simple design, and a surp...

A few years back, Telstra -- synonymous in Australia with "communication" -- told Apple it had no business making a cellphone. Look how that turned out. To make a long story short, the company has since repented, and is on the verge of releasing an app-filled touchscreen phone of their own, the Tel...

The Neat Company is best known for their diminutive scanner and powerful scanning software. You'll remember that we gave away a few of their Neat Receipts scanners a while back. Well, their innovations continue with the announcement of the Neat Receipts Origami Organizer. (Sorry about the use of the...

We love the idea of a DS-based organizer and diary (and yes, we're aware that DS Organize exists) but we aren't sure about the rest of the content in Diary Girl. To be blunt, we find the art style off-putting, but then we aren't little girls. We would rather not stare into the faces of those Bratz-...

You may not care about Konami's Diary Girl, but we do, a little. At least in that it's a novel idea with some neat features, like voice chat, horoscopes, and password-protected journal entries. Sure, DSOrganize does personal organizing stuff, but there's room for a retail solution, we think. We don...

Geeze, those MacZOT guys either have strangely coincidental timing, or I need to consider changing the locks on my house. This is either the second or third time that I discovered and thoroughly enjoyed an app, only to find it go on sale at MacZOT the next day (i.e. - I'm buying a license as I type...

Last week, Mat Lu found a Quicksilver plugin that plays well with Stikkit, the online personal info organizer that thinks so you don't have to, but there's also another method for all you Dashboard junkies out there: a full-on widget from James Adam.

Most of the absurdly superfluous USB accessories we've seen merely add camp value to your cubicle, but here's one that might actually be useful. If you tend to drop the ball on meetings, tasks, and to-dos, you can soon employ a Hayate Cross Blade figurine to remind you of your responsibilities -- i...

Oh so sweet. My favorite catch-all notepad and organizer, VoodooPad, has been updated to version 3.0 today. I fell in love with VoodooPad about two years ago when I started a new job and needed to start keeping track of a huge variety of different kinds of information. I started dumping everything I...

The Omni Group has finalized version 3.6 of OmniOutliner and OmniOutliner Pro, their "amazingly flexible program for creating, collecting, and organizing information." The final version itself doesn't usher in any mind-blowing new features aside from the built-in help being fully localized, but chec...
