Evernote: Never forget a note ever

So I just discovered a really clever tool for people who still like to collect scraps of information- on a website, scribbled on paper, on a printed flyer- but want a way to store or index them digitally. It is called Evernote. In their own words "Evernote allows you to easily capture information in any environment using whatever device or platform you find most convenient, and makes this information accessible and searchable at any time, from anywhere." Best of all it's free. This video below will surely make you want to download one ASAP. It's like google notebook on roids.

I actually took it for a test drive last night. When I got home from Digital LA's networking event, I had collected a stack of business cards that were waiting to be filed. I'm telling you Evernote was just so easy to use. It had a snapshot option in it's drop down menu and in less than 15 minutes all my business cards were stored in my computer and synced to my online account (40mb allowance). I was also able to type down keywords to help me index or search for which note I want at any given time. Since everyone's brain works differently you may or may not associate a give name of an object to the object itself. I still have to explore the mobile application but I'm sure it will come in handy when I take photos of let's say a brand of a nice bottle of red wine that's in French and very difficult to remember. So far it rates high in my grache-o-meter.
