Article

Pun intended, but please take note: Google Keep is NOT an Evernote killer. Hell, I can’t even say it is competition against Remember The Milk with a straight face. What I will say is that it is a nice, simple, straightforward note jotting app that synchronizes with the cloud. One [More]

So, I said farewell to my Kindle Fire today. I spent a week with the shiny Amazon media device and decided that we just weren’t meant to be. Why? Frankly, I want a real tablet computer, not just a book reader with benefits. Before I get to all of that, [More]
