Nokia N97 reviewed

Engadget has posted the most awesome gadget review ever written in the history of ever. Okay, that might be an exaggeration, but I found it very engaging as it pits one reviewer against another in a duel to the death… via letters exchanged by carrier pigeons. I suspect that’s not entirely true (and I made up the part about dueling to the death), but I love the presentation.
Fair warning: you might want to clear some time off your schedule before tackling it. I had to break out my advanced reading skills to chug it down in 10-15 minutes. YMMV.
Oh, and it’s about the Nokia N97. Lot of back and forth about the pros and cons of this advanced device. I found much on both sides that match up with my previous analysis.

OneNote vs Evernote! Let Ink Be Spilled!

Yes, the productivity blog Lifehacker has put it to their readers to decide which desktop note-taking app will reign supreme. They even give a shout-out to the Tablet PC niche by pointing out how much we love our OneNote, but do we? I’m quite the Evernote fan myself, enjoying its easy accessibility on my Tablet PC, iPhone, and work desktop via web access. I’m also using a public notebook for a voice/note blog. Sure, OneNote’s the better inking app, but I do most of my ink in Windows Journal anyway, importing into other apps as needed.
But that’s just my usage. Where do you stand in the battle of One vs. Ever? Vote for your favorite there, but be sure to let us know in the comments why your pick got your vote. And may the rivers run black with ink!
