    don't forget osx's built in Automator "Spotlight Comments" function. basically it works the same way as Punakea but can be automated.

    i used Punakea and it's pretty good at tagging files. however, i've accumulated so many files that need to be tagged that i simply gave up trying. i now make a point to remember that if have a new file that i'll absolutely need to find later, i'll tag it immediately... kindof like my checkbook ledger.

    Tags seems okay, but I'm not totally sold on it. I want something that's quick and simple. Select a bunch of files, hit a hot key, type some tags, hit enter, done.

    Looks like I'm the guy resurrecting these threads today.

    I'm looking for something to tag my bookmarks with (I don't like Delicious; seems too 'busy'), but I'd also like something to extend other aspects of the OS as well. Tags looks like it would work for bookmarks, and I feel like the tagging power of Address Book is incredibly under-utilized, so I need something for that, too.

    My other hope is that whatever I use will get the tags currently in use and will make something happen with those. I'm getting tired of drilling down into folders, and it seems like some kind of tagging application would really help in solving this problem.

    Anyone have any thoughts on any of these?

    Bump.

    There are so many options out there now. I'd love to hear what solutions people use.

    Also any tagging strategies would be appreciated!
