THE CUTE UTES
Micro-apps are tiny, single-minded, singlepurpose applications that you can access easily—nay, at a mere click—from any screen, without wading through menus or burrowing into folders. These can help you organise your desktop, pull up your Google Calendar at a click or enhance your clipboard’s limited memory capabilities to remember everything you Ctrl-c or Ctrl-x. Once installed, you will find them residing cosily in the Windows system tray or the Mac OS X menu bar.
