No, its not some new secret spy plane. It is simply the coolest and most useful free program you can download to your computer. Did I mention -- it's FREE!
X-1 allows you to find anything on your computer -- files, email, contacts, calendar dates -- just by typing in a word or name. And it does so almost instantly. In fact, it works so fast that instead of opening my contacts folder for information, I just type in the name in X-1, and the entire contact card pops up. SmallBizPipeline says the program isn't just a great desktop searching tool -- it will change the way you work with your computer. For their review, CLICK HERE.

Until I attended the ABA National Solo & Small Firm Conference in Milwaukee, I had been using Google's desktop search. But X-1 has three big advantages -- two of which are apparent, and the other is not.
The first is that you can choose what you want to search. If you are looking for an email that you know you have, but just can't find, you can search just email. You can do the same with documents, files, folder, pictures, etc.
The second advantage is the preview pane. On the left side of the screen, you have a listing of all the documents that match your search. But on the right side is a preview of that document so you can see exactly what the document is.
The third advantage, and one that is not obvious, is confidentiality. A little known disclaimer on the Google desktop search (at least it wasn't known to me until I heard about it in Milwaukee) is that Google may store the index of your computer contents on its own computers. It's something they include in the "fine print." For those concerned with confidentiality -- and all lawyers should be -- the idea of an index of what is on your computer being in someone else's hands is disconcerting.
So checkout X1. You will be amazed. For the download site, just click HERE.
