    Whoa. What happened? Did we just get teleported back to 2010?

    It's called the Cloud, bro. If you aren't hip on this shit now, you already missed the bus.

    I don't know what the fuck it is but some of the people I work with use it to help with their expense reports. I guess it helps them organize their receipts.

    Check it bro.

    You're running around the jobsite, and goddamn, you see some fucked up shit that is going to have to be dealt with. So you take your phone out, and snap a picture, and jot a quick note. Then you put your phone away.

    When you get back to your desk at work, boom. There is the picture, there is the note you made. No transfers, no emails, no nothing. It's just done.

    :c

    that helps....this sorta helped, but I still need more real world examples...

    For example, when I find a cool website and I want to store it - this could work?

    It just seems these tools to keep you organized take way to much time to set up

    i've been using it since it was in beta. I use it for all my system notes. the things i would write in notebooks about different systems and programs; every time something new breaks and i figure out how to fix it, or i find out how to do something new in some environment at work, i note it in Evernote. Lately I've taken to using post it notes because they work with Evernote now: write on a post it note, photo it with my iphone and it is immediately filed in my Evernote account online and instantly available in my notebooks on all my devices and PCs.

    about as secure as anything online is. they use the standard AES 256 encryption. you take some risk storing anything online unless you control all the encryption keys (and if you want to do that you want something called Boxcryptor). You have to be aware of what you are storing, and keep the sensitive stuff out. No passwords. No phone numbers, etc. because no matter how honest and secure something is, there is someone else who expects to get laid if he cracks it.

    You can also use Evernote Clipper which will grab part of a web page and it is available to you anywhere, in the way Dave and Froggy explained.
