Quick Hit: Thoughts on the Sony Tablet P

While I was in Texas I had an opportunity to spend about half an hour with a Sony Tablet P. It’s an interesting tablet in that it uses a clamshell form factor. I’m a big fan of the clamshell design. Not exactly sure why, but I am. Perhaps it has something to do with the compact […]

Evernote update for Android is awesome

I received an update for Evernote today on my Galaxy Nexus. And let me just say that it’s awesome. I use Evernote all the time. It’s one of the few services I pay for because it’s the best method I’ve found for collecting notes; all kids of notes. I use it to clip web pages […]
