CNET Editors' review
If you've ever spotted a piece of crucial information while surfing the Internet or reading an e-mail, you might have stumbled trying to find a way to copy it and keep it organized. Anagram claims to be the perfect software for this situation.
The program has a unique interface that takes a trip to the Help menu to understand. However, after some research and experimentation, users should be familiar with Anagram. To activate it, simply highlight some text from an e-mail or Web site and hit CTRL+C twice. This will bring up Microsoft Outlook and Anagram's small window. Anagram's main window displays the highlighted text and offers commands to the right. Users can choose to paste this information as a Contact in Outlook, as an Event in Outlook, as a Task in Outlook, or create a sticky note for their desktop. Depending on the choice, the information fits itself into each of these options, some working better than others.
Anagram is not a perfect program. You'll need every bit of the 45-day trial period to get used to figuring out which option is best for each specific bit of information. In addition, this program probably will only appeal to users who frequently find themselves constantly cutting and pasting info. For those users, this is a great tool for cataloging.

"Can't believe I lived without this"
Version: Copy2Contact 3.0.2
I can't even fathom how much time this has saved me. Worth every penny.
Doesn't do my grocery shopping.
This is one of those things that makes you realize the regular way of doing things all along is a huge waste of time. It really should be built into programs like Outlook because it makes it a lot easier to use. I actually signed up with CNET just to review this. That's how happy I am to not be cutting and pasting contacts any more.
