Picture 9.jpgI recently learned about Evernote after seeing it on GeekBrief.tv. It’s currently invite only, but I received one a few days after requesting (I also have some available, leave a comment if you want one). Evernote works with any web browser and includes a stand-alone applications for Mac and PC. But what does it do?

“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 anytime, from anywhere.”

I think of Evernote as an offline and online searchable file cabinet. You can store “clips” from web sites, text notes, pdfs, images, and even audio. If you’re using the standalone application, the data is the synced to the Evernote server, making it available from any computer.

Here’s the cool part. A few moments after data has been synced to the Evernote server, it’s searchable (not audio files). For example…

I’ve always posted original material on corewerkz, but this one is special. This music video (“Again & Again” by The Bird and the Bee) was made entirely on a Mac, but probably not the way you think. You gotta check this out (thanks CrunchGear):

Update: I think the new firmware from pwnage was also causing problems… now i’m restoring again and going back to the ziphone jailbreak, which was very stable before customize 2 (below).

A word of caution to anyone else out there with the hacked iPhone:

Don’t disable SMBprefs from within Customize 2.0b9 (the newest version right now); it will cause your iPhone to boot to the Apple logo and vibrate.

This has happened to at least a few other people from what I’ve been reading on various forums around the net. I could still afp into my iPhone and ssh in, but couldn’t fix whatever the problem was.

Of course, it’s always possible to get back to the default iPhone software, so now I’ve re-jailbroken using the new Pwnage method, which is pretty cool. I’ve re-installed Customize 2 (without ever installing SMB) and it seems to be working fine. The new themes and interface are AWESOME!

Here’s my new theme, although it’s bound to change in a day or so:

BTW… I recommend updating Installer.app if you haven’t already, they’ve finally added the ability to search for applications, which is crucial now that there are probably over 1000.

Just curious if anyone else reading this has experienced extreme slowness with the OpenDNS servers for about the past 2-3 days. I finally just switched all DNS entries back to my ISP and everything is working much faster. A big disappointment to me, especially after posting an article about how OpenDNS will SPEED UP YOUR INTERNET! Boo OpenDNS! I’ll try again in a few weeks.

Picture 2.jpgWith the recent $5 increase in the price of 1Password, many people are wondering if it’s worth the cost. To help you decide, consider the following features 1Password provides that you don’t get with Safari, Firefox, Opera, or any other browser:

Fill/save multiple identities – Good for forum/online store/blog registrations; keep fake/real identities and different e-mail addresses

Save credit card information – Including multiple credit card numbers, checking accounts, payment methods, and shipping addresses

iPhone/Palm password syncing (and a slick autofill feature for the iPhone, not sure about Palm)

Create auto-login bookmarks and aliases (read corewerkz article)

View password histories – See all usernames/passwords you’ve ever saved – Good for forgotten/mistyped passwords

Decide on a per-webpage-basis when to autosave and autofill user’s information

Multiple user accounts per website – Good, for example, if you have multiple G-Mail accounts

Online syncing with “my1password” servers – Access your passwords from any web browser anywhere

Export usernames/passwords – As a web page or text file; easily print all passwords for hardcopy backup

Anti-Phishing protection – Using the OpenDNS PhishTank anti-phishing service

All password information and identities available within all web browsers – Crucial if you use multiple web browsers

Better, more sophisticated, form filling and password saving – For example, Safari won’t store password information on certain sites (like some online banking websites)

Import password data from other web browsers (and keychain) into 1password – Create a master list of all your saved passwords

Easily create super-strong password from within web browser – Using 1Password’s “Strong Password Generator” which now includes the ability to generate pronounceable and hash-based passwords

User adjustable “lock after X minutes of inactivity” – Or choose to keep unlocked after first 1Password login
