DEMO: Time for E-mail Without the Hassles
"It's pretty much the same now," he said here at the DEMO conference. If a sender doesn't include a vCard (a digital business card), fields like name, address and phone number have to be individually copy-and-pasted.
Enter Gwabbit, a $19.95 download for Outlook available from Miller's company, Technicopia. Gwabbit (sounds like "grab it") scans incoming e-mail, identifies contact info and moves it to Outlook's contact list. In Miller's demo, it took Gwabbit about five seconds to add a new contact from an e-mail, versus a minute and ten seconds to copy and paste individual fields. You can also click the Gwabbit button to scan older e-mails and update your list.
