Alarms is a new reminder program that is currently in public beta. It is pretty clever. You can drag just about any item to the menu item, a timeline will pop down, drop the item on the time you wish to be reminded, and it will alert you and for certain items launch the app at the appointed time. Probably best to watch the video on the website to see what I mean but here is a quote:
Just drag the items you want to be remembered of to the Alarms menu and place them on the time line. Due items can be dragged just further right or even to another day.
Remember all of that noise I made about stuff in your menubar here in the early days? Yeah, forget about that. Make an exception here and give this a try. It’s in public beta so it is free for now.
