QuickSilver is awesome, but apparently they've stopped supporting it. Alfred is a very similar app and is currently in beta.

+1 for Omnifocus

I like Sktich for screen shots. You can mark them up, share them online and even start a discussion thread in which others can mark up the original too.

Boulder is a great place, but I suspect its sense of wealth is distorted because of government money. There is a boatload of cash flowing through here by way of the state of Colorado (CU), NASA, NOAA, NCAR etc.

I actually prefer to delete for certain things, especially marketing messages and machine-generated notifications. I've set up a custom shortcut key to do make it more intuitive for me.

Try multiple inboxes in Google Labs. I use it get a birdseye view of Inbox, Later (things I will get to soon) and Waiting Fors (things I'm awaiting a response on).

A hack for waiting fors is set up a filter on outbound messages that looks for something like "wf" at the bottom of the message and applies the Waiting For label. Then when I send an email to someone asking a question or scheduling an appointment or whatever I just put "wf" after my sig.

Yeah, but the Newspaper of Record is known for one faker in particular. I'd forgotten Blair was black until you brought it up. Way to go dragging race into it.

And BTW Blair wasn't a plagiarist. He just made shit up.

Yes because liking a product excessively is exactly like living in the world's worst totalitarian state.

Also, making exaggerated metaphors is like the Holocaust. Or AIDs. You get my drift.

Yeah but SalesForce case management sucks. Their Twitter integration is lipstick on a pig that hasn't had a major UI update since, what, 2001?

When companies spend their brainpower on legal BS instead of innovation, that's a sure sign you should stop using them.
