Ever envy celebrities for their handlers and personal assistants who keep track of their schedules and appointments? Maybe you need Sandy, a free, virtual personal assistant that keeps you up to date, organized, and on track. You program the service to remind you when to move your car, go to yoga, or call a friend back by emailing Sandy at a special email address.
All you have to do is keep Sandy up to date with your appointments, to-dos, and contacts, and she will send you messages with attachments you can click to add to your calendar, to-do list, or address book. You can receive reminders by email to your BlackBerry, Palm, iPhone, or via a text on your cell phone. The service is comparable to Backpack It, but requires less set up.
