    Looks like I finally found my stickybrain replacement.

    http://www.barebones.com/products/yojimbo/index.shtml

    I store all my passwords, serial numbers, and notes in stickybrain, but the software is a bit bloated in terms of functionality and I don't like how it uses external database software. Yojimbo has some really great features and uses core data. Probably the best part for me is the .mac syncing. Now I don't have to worry about always having the same data on 2 machines.

    On a side note, it's quite surprising to see barebones deliver such a nice looking cocoa app. I never knew they had it in them.

    Is anyone here interested in reviewing it for MacsNPods.com? They sent us a serial number for it, so we can review it.

    Anyone want to do the review, and in return, get to keep the serial to a $30 application?

    People pay $179 or so for their text editor, so $39 is a steal in comparison. :D

    If it doesn't work out with qtip, I'd also be willing to do this, possibly other reviews if it means trying out cool apps for free. :)

    Hmm, not too impressed with this app so far. Its a long way from DEVONthink anyway, which is what I guess is its most obvious competitor. Still, not bad for a 1.0

    Isn't DEVONthink a bit like stickybrain? I think those apps have too much functionality for what I need. That's why I like Yojimbo better. I like the clean minimalistic interface. I don't have to think twice about how to use it.
