Tool lets users keep track of online information

Cyberspace: it has developed from a small-scale, manageable Arpanet into a worldwide, infinite network of computers delivering endless amounts of information. Search engines return old data, dead links, or simply have too much noise and too little signal. Try to retrieve information and results end up being so broad, they leave you drowning in data.

Enter iHarvest One, a Web organiser that helps you cut through the clutter and easily share online information with others. What's more -- it's free.

Capture any piece of information -- anything from a single image to an entire Web page -- and add it to iHarvest's folder-like structure. All it takes is a click and a drag. iHarvest makes retrieving, managing and integrating Web information a cinch.

How does it work?

Say you need to translate an article from an Italian newspaper into English. With iHarvest, you can save the news article, a translation program, and a spell checker all in one folder. When you go back to check out the results, you can view the article in one streaming document, or you can opt to flip through it page by page.

"We've focused on a complete solution right from the beginning," says Dennis Buchheim, iHarvest's cofounder and vice president of product management and operations. "The product is integrated directly onto your browser, which you won't see anywhere else."

Not only are you no longer forced to work from a single Web page, you also can wave farewell to that endless string of bookmarks on your browser. Sites, databases and applications are automatically combined with other text and data and organised into a basic, easy-to-read format. You can store data that you've gathered yourself, or simply let iHarvest find complementary information to update your text based on key words that the system has gathered from your search.

"iHarvest has the ability to automatically find the most interesting content and promotions. As you put more and more information into the product, your searches will get better and better," Buchheim says. "We're also very committed to privacy."

Of course, the promotions can at times be distracting. But at least they're targeted towards your specific tastes.

For those who have an irrational hatred of Microsoft, you'll have to wait a few months to try iHarvest on Netscape browsers. Currently it's compatible only with Internet Explorer. iharvest Onehttp://www.iharvest.com

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

MSI P65

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

Lolita Wang

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Christopher Low

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
