Evernote

I spend a lot of time trying to find things on the Internet.  Not just for other people - for me, too.  And a lot of times, I will find a web address, write it down, and promptly forget about it - or find it days, weeks, even months later - with absolutely no idea of why I jotted it down in the first place.  I've recently discovered a handy way to keep track of all of those sites I've been meaning to check out, but never had the chance to, for whatever reason.

I subscribe to a lot of tech blogs, because I like gadgety things, and one entry a few months ago praised this little emerging site called Evernote.  With Evernote, you can 'clip' items from the web and save them to personal folders...similar to Google Notebook, or Yahoo Notebook.  Evernote is different, however, in that it can be synched with iPod Touch or iPhone, so you can access your notes at any time from your mobile device.  A free account allows you to clip and save a lot of material - but for a nominal fee (something like $5 per month), you can have access to all the bells and whistles Evernote offers.  For more information about what it is and how it works (I'm still learning myself!) click here.
