Software developer CaptureWorks is releasing TaskCapture 2.0 for Mac and
Windows platforms, a powerful, precision time and activity tracking
solution designed for single-users, freelancers, or anyone looking to track

for entering time estimates into conventional billing or time tracking
systems (such as manual start/stop timers). Such practices lead inevitably
