Word of the Week: Evernote

Evernote: A useful combination of social bookmarking services like Delicious and the syncing capability of Dropbox, Evernote is a way for users to hold onto anything that they find of interest on the Internet and access it on any machine or mobile device. After creating a free account and adding the Web clipper extension to your browser, you can begin to save content from the Internet for future use in your Evernote notebook. The clipper allows you to save just the URL or all the content of a page, and it also allows you to highlight the portion of the page you want to save. Evernote is accessible through any Web browser, there is a desktop client for Windows and for Mac, and there are mobile apps for iPhone, Android and Blackberry. When you add a new note, the information is synced across all computers and mobile devices on which Evernote has been installed. Evernote can also be used through Twitter to save tweets or to create new notes through tweets, and everything in your notebook is fully searchable – even text within photos and images that have been saved.
