Evernote considering digital ink, handwriting recognition for iPad

Evernote considering digital ink, handwriting recognition for iPad

Evernote is one of the more useful apps out there, and the company has just announced that it's passed three million registered users.  Some of those are using the app on their iPad, but going by a GottaBeMobile interview with CEO Phil Libin, the company could find themselves taking on one of Apple CEO Steve Jobs' biggest tablet beliefs: that if you reach for a stylus, it's a failure.  According to Libin, Evernote are considering "full" digital inking capabilities on the iPad and iPhone versions of the software (along with the Android app), and in the meantime are adding in basic inking and sketching abilities.

Dropbox can now store web links along with your files

Dropbox can now store web links along with your files

Gone are the days when we all had homogeneous types of data for a single purpose. Project references now usually include not just documents, images, and other files, they usually point to web pages as well. Gathering them all in one place might not be that difficult if you're talking about digital files, but when URLs are thrown in the mix, it begins to get a bit messy. Well, now Dropbox has a way to keep even those under control, allowing users to simply dump links alongside other supported file types.

OS X El Capitan Preview – Ahoy there, captain!

OS X El Capitan Preview – Ahoy there, captain!

OS X El Capitan isn’t a big of an overhaul update as Yosemite, but there are plenty of new features and design elements that keep a smile on my face. There’s a lot to be said for “if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it” and that’s exactly what Apple has done. In El Capitan, it’s all about performance and experience, and that could pay real dividends not only for power-users, but for mainstream users wanting to squeeze the most out of their Mac.

Waterproof 8GB Sony Xperia M4 Aqua isn’t bloatware-proof

Waterproof 8GB Sony Xperia M4 Aqua isn’t bloatware-proof

It has just been two months since Sony announced its latest waterproof mid-range beauty and now it is gaining some notoriety. At least the 8 GB version of Xperia M4 Aqua. Xperia Blog reports how Sony has, intentionally or not, practically crippled the more affordable model of the two versions, leaving less than 2 GB of usable storage space out of the 8 GB total storage found inside. And the culprit? Nothing less than the smartphone user's favorite source of headache: pre-installed apps, a.k.a. bloatware.

This is Uber’s future (and massive) San Francisco campus

Uber is many things: controversial, successful, and usually undeterred. It's also wealthy, and what better way to demonstrate that wealth than a big glassy campus in tech-heavy San Francisco? The ridesharing service has commissioned a pair of companies to develop the campus, and concept images showing what the final structures will look like have been published. In them we see two buildings, one larger than the other, connected together with glassy walkways over the street sandwiched between them, as well as a lot of glass and interior wooden rooms.

Microsoft new productivity apps leaked; Office Now and OneClip

Microsoft has some new productivity apps in the works for Android, iOS, and of course, Windows Phone. Microsoft is reportedly internally testing apps ranging from an evolved, personal assistant called Office Now to a cross-device cloud-based clipboard called OneClip. Microsoft's Office Now could be the "Personal Agent" that Bill Gates hinted at in a recent Reddit AMA. Gates said at the time, "The idea that you have to find applications and pick them and they each are trying to tell you what is new is just not the efficient model - the agent will help solve this."

Phree digital pen wants to turn everything into paper

Phree digital pen wants to turn everything into paper

Despite the strong beliefs of the late Steve Jobs, the stylus refuses to die. Just ask Samsung, Livescribe, Adonit, Wacom, and a whole host of other manufacturers that bridge the divide between the digital and the analog. Productivity experts will also testify to the psychological and mental benefits of writing by hand. But existing solutions so far have one critical limitation: they work only on screens or on special paper. Phree, the latest wonder Kickstarter campaign, wants to set you completely free, by turning the whole world into a writing surface.
