Quick Review: Jot Script (Evernote) Stylus
January 20, 2015
The Jot Script by Adonit, Evernote editionEven with the failure of the Pencil by Fifty Three on my “Go Paperless” kick, I remained undeterred. Second on the docket, was Penultimate by Evernote and the Jot Script (Evernote edition). I was most excited by trying this combo out since it seemed express built for my purposes. Plus, my end goal is my digital life in Evernote, so what better than an app (and stylus) designed specifically for that exact purpose?
Quick Review: Pencil (Stylus) by Fifty Three
January 19, 2015
Pencil By FiftyThree Recently I’ve been on a “go paperless” kick. I want to move as much of my life into Evernote as possible. While I’ve been using Evernote for quite some time, I got the bug to expand that usage and see what else I could do easily. Part of that is the desire to be able to take handwritten notes, digitally. In the past I’ve used Paper by FiftyThree and quite enjoyed it, so I figured I’d see how Pencil by FiftyThree (their custom stylus) worked out.
Review: Doxie Go (Scanner)
December 8, 2011
This week I got a brand new Doxie Go scanner. If you’ve never heard of it, have no fear. It’s a brand new model and honestly, I hadn’t heard about any of the other “Doxie” products before either. The Go is a portable cordless (not wireless — there’s a difference) scanner that has a built in battery and memory to scan “on the go”. It is a feed scanner that will do 300 dpi by default; it is also able to do 600 dpi. It is by no means a photo-scanner (Translation: It is not the device you use if you want to digitize your memories of high school forever in a digital format), that’s not what it is designed for. This is the scanner that you can drop into your bag/backpack/whatever, pull out and be scanning homework/receipts/printouts/instructions/bills/mail/notes in a matter of seconds.
Remote system management from the road
September 2, 2011
This post is a direct response to a comment posted on my article about the 4th Gen Macbook Air. In short, Eddie (the commenter/questioner) is looking for a little information about remote system management. Some have suggested the iPad, some say a MacBook Air, I’ve mentioned Chromebooks… So what do you use? Well, I can actually understand every perspective he mentioned. There are 3 things I take into consideration when talking about traveling sysadmins. First is: what do you need? The second is: what will work on the device? Lastly, what is actually the smallest/least amount of crap?
