The Perfect Cuppa

You're a savvy multitasker, with everything from Monday’s meetings to your 3-month oil change integrated into your Entourage, which is then, of course, beamed into your Blackberry. So why can't you manage to remember that poor, lonely, forgotten cup of tea left to grow cold and bitter as you go about your supposedly more important tasks? Thankfully, Cuppa is here to bring your beverage brewing into the 21st century. This small, free application for Mac users installs a handy little teacup icon on your dock that counts down the seconds until sippy time. Choose Earl Grey, mint, rooibos or blackcurrant tea from the drop-down menu, or add your own favorite variety—it's also great for keeping track of your press pot coffee. —Shoshanna Cohen
