    Not free. But wait for the Addressbook in Panther 10.3. Coming out soon.

    Supposedly it's significantly more comprehensive.

    Not free. From Casady and Green: Info Genie. I've been using it for
    years. I'm assuming there's an OS X version (haven't checked). Simple
    interface. Freeform entry. EXTREMELY fast searching (like split
    second 'finds'). I like it. Worth the money IMHO.

    Actually, right now this *is* free temporarily, as I explained here:

    Casady & Greene is no longer in existence, except as a legal entity in
    bankruptcy proceedings. This is not an aspersion on their products,
    many of which were excellent, but a warning that (barring legal
    reassignment of rights) the products are probably not going to be
    receiving updates or support.

    Forgot C&G went under. Bummer. I haven't followed their stuff for a
    while. Is Data Pro the same as InfoGenie? I guess I'll have to check
    it out.

    Thanks.

    Yes, just checked. DataPro is the same as InfoGenie. Great app. Too
    bad the company went under. Works on Mac OS X.

    Too bad. I have their spell checker, too, which has lots of nice
    features.

    Sigh.

    If you have Spell Catcher X, then you know my real name (I wrote the
    User Manual). They went into bankruptcy before paying me, so I have
    some mixed feelings on the subject.

    Most of the C&G's titles are now being sold by other companies. Spell
    Catcher is now available at <http://www.rainmakerinc.com/>.

    KEWL! Thanks for telling me, I hadn't seen that before.

    So now we have an address book that is customizable and a calendar
    program that has added notes (I'm sure some other things too) with at
    least some integration.

    This may allow me to get rid of my last wintel box!
