Steve Jobs – Official movie trailer

The movie itself looks good, but Michael Fassbender just doesn’t fit. I don’t care how good he is as an actor, he doesn’t look anything like Steve Jobs. And that would be ok were it not for the fact that Jobs only passed away a few years ago. He’s too fresh in our mind.

Evernote vs. OneNote

OneNoteWhen comparing Evernote and Microsoft OneNote, I must admit that OneNote is infinitely more feature-rich and usable. The only advantage I can find for Evernote is the integration with so many other apps and services.

In fact, I prefer writing in OneNote to MS Word (2011). I hope the newer version of Word is closer in design to OneNote. The interface is so clean and easy to use in OneNote. It just makes sense. It’s the complete opposite of MS Office apps.

Do you use any note-taking apps like Evernote, OneNote, SimpleNote, etc.?

Apple must have a lot of ping-pong balls in the government’s “who do we investigate next” lottery barrel.
