Evernote: Once Burned, Twice Shy
by on October 6, 2010

Although this is my first official review of Evernote, it is not my first experience with it. Over the summer I used it for one class. It didn’t go well.

I liked the format, the Elephant logo, and the organization of notes. On that one fateful day, however, I almost gave up on Evernote for good.

Evernote Take One

One of the best offline maps app I’ve used to date is OffMaps by Felix Lamouroux. Like all offline maps applications, it’s powered by OpenStreetMap, and can tap into … Read More

Day 1 of my trip to the UK and I immediately met with an iPad wifi woe trying to log into the hotel’s network. After connecting to the ‘open’ wifi I was taken to a login page that asked for both a username and a password, which had been provided by the hotel.
