Know The Color Code Of Any Color Anywhere On Your Screen

While working with http://technize.com I had one problem .. adjusting all the colors. I had to copy the screen shot of the whole blog into Adobe Photoshop and then pick the color code from there and then put it in the stylesheet. Then I found out two softwares which could do this for me. They can pick the color of any place on the screen.
