Sidenote: Great little utility

Pierre Chatel's great (and free!) little 'Sidenote' displays notes (RTF formatting, of course) does a simple (and thus good) job. You can read more about it here. There are, of course, more than one solution for this kind of thing. Apple does two right now: Dashboard's stickies and I like Sidenote better, though.

It's a direct competitor to Illustrator, so it won't make much sense to further update the application for Adobe... Read more here at geekzone and here at TheRegister. And the official announcement.
