As the banner above (taken directly from Evernote.com) mentions, Evernote is a piece of software that allows you to sync content from all over the place. Once an (free) account is created, notes can be made from a number of places:

1) Locally on a computer, using their Mac or PC software.
2) iPhone application.
3) Evernote.com. 

Once a note is made (text, audio, or images are acceptable forms of notes – it can even read text FROM images!), content can be synced to-and-from the Evernote universe/cloud.

From a monetary perspective, Evernote banks on the fact that hardcore users of their product will need more bandwidth, which you have to pay monthly for. But, for the average user (like myself – I’ve been a user for almost a year), their 40MB per month cap is more than enough.

So, if you’re like me, and what all of your todos/homework/grocery lists to be synced to multiple locations, CHECK OUT EVERNOTE!

Many of you may be familiar with the iPhone app that shares the name with a certain yellow cartoon character. Luckily, Tweetie != Tweety. Atebits, the company behind this amazing Twitter client, has finally released their version of Tweetie for the Mac. Windows/Unix/Linux/Solaris users: You’re all out of luck.


A beautiful application written in Mac OS X native Cocoa (not another Air app, thank god – goodbye, Tweetdeck!), Tweetie is lacking very little. And what it does do well (almost everything), it does REALLY well. Most transitions between individual user pages and tabs are smoothly coded with “shadowy” effects. Also, as pictured below, Tweetie (not unlike it’s iPhone counterpart) handles multimedia within the application, as long as it’s from a known source (Twitpic, for example, is a popular service for hosting pictures).


Don’t get the wrong impression, though – Tweetie isn’t perfect.

Costs $14.95 (although, it’s useable otherwise, if you can stomach a few ads).
Can’t unfollow/follow users from within the application.
No skinning/themes, unlike the iPhone version.

EDIT: Just found out how to follow/unfollow people – it’s just not as obvious as it is in the iPhone version…

Get Tweetie for Mac OS X Now!

I’m completely infatuated with these “downgrade” stickers for iPhone.  They are super cheap ($19/14) and don’t leave any kind of residue when you peel them off + they’re reusable.  I am ordering some so I can make my iPhone look like my old piece of shit Sony Ericsson I use to have. Hooray for cleverly disguised awesomeness. Sorry for the fake enthusiasm, but yeah, I’m still ordering some.

DISCLAIMER: These will not protect your iPhone from drops and falls to hard surfaces, however it will protect you from people who think you’re a conformist douche bag for having an iPhone.

BUY — ($19/14 stickers)

So, if you’re like me and refuse to wear those belt clip iPhone cases, or even worse that iPhone fanny pack from Incase (which now seems to have been removed, probably for obvious reasons), then this might help keep your phone scratch free.  I have always put my phone in my back pocket for years, and yes I even put my iPhone in my back pocket. Stop gasping and shut your yap…it’s a sturdy piece of communication equipment and as long as you don’t use it as a speed bump or to bludgeon your neighbor with, then it’ll be fine.  But…it does get lint and minor abrasions from being in the pocket, so if you’re like me, and want a little extra protection for your phone check out this case.

BUY IT — ($25)
