Greplin ...

Currently playing in a desultory way with Greplin - an application that searches your gmail account, twitter stream, facebook account etc to find that key document or reference and that you can't find - basically automating these 'where the f did I see that' searches.

Greplin, the name obviously inspired by every indexer's favourite tool, grep, is a work in progress with new searches under development. My only gripe is that although they search both Google Dosc and Dropbox, they don't currently seem to have plans for searches of Windows Live skydrive or OneNote documents - both items I use extensively, skydrive as a pdf repository, and OneNote as a set of commonplace books, and that kind of reduces its usefulness to me though not its potential.
