TechOff! First up, Evernote

The ever famous economist, Brad DeLong, is somewhat adressing this topic in his recent post. There are all these tools, which does one use?

First up we'll present a high level overview of Evernote, an increasingly popular internet tool that lets you do . . . something. What's that something?

Evernote on phone, desktop, and browser On the web. On your desktop. On your phone.

Everything you put into Evernote is always synchronized across all of your devices. That way. all your memories are available to you wherever you are.

Hmm, ok, sounds like Evernote wants me to get all my digital stuff into their system. So they are somewhat competing with MSFT and GOOG. Microsoft does a lot of your file storage, file type creation and management, and can do pictures etc. GOOG does all that too, and does it better over the internet.
A bonus is that I should be able to do this from my cell phone, or my PC (and I can do it via the internet or a desktop client). That's nice, let's me do . . . something . . . almost anywhere.

How to get stuff into Evernote

Memorable stuff is always happening, so we’ve created lots of way for you to get that stuff into Evernote:

  • Create

    Create new notes using desktop, web, and mobile versions of Evernote
  • Snap

    Take a snapshot using your camera phone or webcam
  • Clip

    Clip entire webpages, screenshots, and just about anything else you can copy
  • Drag-n-drop

    Drag and drop content into the desktop clients for Mac and Windows
  • Email

    Email notes directly into your account using your personalized email address
  • Record

    Record audio wherever you are and listen to it whenever you want
The above seems somewhat useful if you don't want any paper notes etc, and if you are in an "always digitally on" environment.
