The more clutter your computer removes from your life (file cabinets, newspapers, people), the more crowded your screen becomes. Simplify the simplifier, with KallOut
Out of Monterey, KO's a downloadable mini-app that lets you cross-reference the Internet within commonly used desktop programs (Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Adobe...), without ever stooping to open a browser. Just highlight some text in any of the serviced programs, wait for the pop-up quote-bubble, and choose your options: search/reference/shop/news/images/vids/location, with the most applicable up top, i.e., addresses'll first yield maps, while "exercise ball" yields a link to videos pregnant with the promise of kids painfully bursting through them. Settle on a category and KO'll spit out more specific options, from Google search results, to eBay listings, to YouTube vids, any of which'll seamlessly display/play in a small box next to your text; the box can be enlarged, or minimized in case you're running multiple KallOuts, or don't want coworkers to spy the results of highlighting "Harry Reems"
Getting quick info within web browsers works the same way, eliminating the need to open additional tabs or windows. Though just for PCs now, they're also working on Mac integration, so you can finally toss out the clutter that is your PC.
