Personal Information Managers
 Why a Bad PIM is Better Than No PIM (Jesse Berst, Editorial Director, ZDNet AnchorDesk)
  "PIMs are software apps that are supposed to organize your calendars, to-do lists, contacts. Two years ago I told you there was no perfect PIM. And guess what? There still isn't. At least not for an organization zealot like me. There's been progress, sure. PIMs store more, and information sharing is getting easier. But most are still bloated and incompatible with other programs. Alas, a bad PIM is better than being disorganized. Which is why I put together this guide to picking the right PIM and PIM platform."
