It’s been popular for 2 years, so I’m trying to figure out if it’s worth getting excited about Evernote.
I like Dropbox a lot. (A whole lot, but that’s another story.)
I’ve experimented with Google and Yahoo sites as a way of storing information online, and it’s just too much, because they’re not really filing systems as much as authoring systems. I want something like Dropbox, but for odds and ends.
So I’m experimenting with Evernote. I’m intrigued with its purported ability to OCR text off the images I upload.
(D’oh! that reminds me: I figured out, eventually, how to get Tesseract working. It was about a half day of work, but when I finished, for the sample documents I fed it, it did better than I.R.I.S. Your mileage may vary. I need to locate and write up my notes.)
