As a daily Evernote user this was awesome to see. One of my other favorite productivity boosting companies Officedrop was plugging into Evernote already and I’m looking forward to seeing what other cool integrations are in store through this platform.

Goodbye Palm Pre, hello Android

leave a comment »

I guess it is apropos that I type this blog post on my new HTC Hero.  Just bought it to replace my Palm Pre which had a cracked screen.  The Pre was a good phone and I would have kept it had it not broken, but now that I have had a taste of Android and the Hero, I don’t know if I could go back. 

The main advantage of Android is definitely the huge array of available apps.  Any of the major mobile apps that you would want are available on the Android marketplace.  The other big plus for me has been the email.  Email was definitely an Achilles heel for the Pre (esp. After having used a Blackberry for a year).  No real shortcuts to help speed typing and terrible sorting and search capabilities.  Also, the calendaring functionality was not very good. Both or these things were important as I use my phone quite a bit for work.
