Better still, create an errands context and make CVS a subcontext of errands.

Then you can look at CVS-related tasks when you're going to just CVS or look at all of your errands if you're headed...

It's not polling that's the issue really (I can see how the way I phrased that may make it sound like I was talking about polling though). There are plenty of really good reasons why an OS should not...

There aren't exactly a ton of details about this yet, but it kind of sounds like this is at least partially implemented in OmniFocus for iPhone--the whole "GPS-enabled location-sensitive action...

I set up a bills context and put repeating actions in there (I have a project that's just for bills too, but that's not functional, only helps to organize them). Each action has a start date (usually...

OF can be used for time management styles other than GTD. Omni never claimed that it could be used for all other time management styles, just "other", which would imply some other. The lack of...

I think this is why this thread refuses to die. People who are not using a strict (or even halfway) GTD methodology don't understand why priorities are considered a Bad Thing by GTDers. They don't...

I think there is a philosophy behind not putting every single feature into your GTD app, and it's a philosophy of software design that is rooted in OS X's UNIX origins.

Most "GTD" apps end up...

Any task that does not have a start date set, will automatically appear in your list. The start date is the trigger that makes things become visible. So set a start date for today (the day you...

The definition of "next action" should be eqivalent to what "available" actions is defined as now. That's the GTD definition of "next action". This nonsense about purple highlighting is just a...

I'm pretty sure the iPod calculator is the same as the iPhone which, although a wonderful tribute to Dieter Rams, is not scientific as far as I know.

Don't know for sure until someone actually gets one, but I feel pretty safe in the assumption that it uses the exact same version of Safari as the iPhone does.
