Do any of these apps give you Newton like functionality (Agents/Assistants, Linking etc) ?

What would be nice is a 'gatherer' that would index your Address Book (Apple & your Email Address Book if they're different), Browser and Calender (iCal or Outlook for example) and then have a simple interface that would allow you to type "have lunch with John" and pop up all the Johns (from Address Book), make a suggested entry in your Calendar and maybe suggest a venue and possibly open a new Email to invite John with all the appropriate details.

Possibly a bit more of a PIM than a general dumping ground but it could easily do similar things for everything else in there (similar to Springs linking).
