Having fond memories of the desk blotter calendar is a sure way to date oneself technologically. However old-fashion and primitive they were, those big month-at-a-glance calendars were a good way to keep one’s daily life in plain sight. Now the freeware application “Outlook on the Desktop” brings that functionality to your computer’s desktop by embedding the Outlook calendar directly into your desktop as a semi-transparent layer. The big plus is that because OOTD uses Outlook, you have access to all of Outlook’s functionality – this means you can pin task lists and even email to your desktop as well. The only drawback is that this application is for Windows only.
