Desktop Search apps like Windows Desktop Search and Copernic make it easier to find information stored on your hard drive with better indexing than what's included in Windows. These are passive solutions that only function when you pause what you're doing and type in a search query. Many times, having the information you need at your fingertips without searching would be even better. Watson from Intellext aims to provide that solution by running as a sidebar to IE, Firefox, Word, Outlook and PowerPoint, proactively returning search results to whatever you are currently doing. This could be as simple as providing a list of email exchanges with a contact from Outlook or pulling in results related to whatever you're currently doing in word. Watson augments your desktop search by providing results from the desktop search index. It also actively searches Google, news and shopping sites, and blogs depending on your configuration. A fee version searches subscription research sites like Gartner and Forrester, but most features are available free of charge supported through unobtrusive advertising. [Windows 2k/XP $0.00]
