Sync Notes, Images, Audio and more with Evernote

I’ve been using this awesome app. for a while and after running into an article about it, I’ve realized I’d been a little selfish in not sharing this awesome application with you.

Evernote allows you, in one single application to save just about anything from documents to handwritten notes, photos, audio and more. Personally, I use it all the time for adding notes to an idea (before I forget it), taking pictures of handwritten notes I made then I just toss the paper and if I find something that relates to an idea I’ve been taking notes on, I can take a picture of it or save its bookmark and attach it to the notes in Evernote.

The very best part of taking pictures of notes I had to physically write by hand, is that once I’ve loaded the image of the notes, the text becomes searchable! You’ll find yourself using this all the time. Specially since you can add it anywhere and access it anywhere (including different devices).

Here’s an intro video all about Evernote directly from Evernote.com

Capture anything: Save your ideas, things you like, things you hear and things you see.

Access anywhere: Evernote works with nearly every computer, phone and mobile device out there.

Find things fast: Search by keyword, tag or even printed and handwritten text inside images.

Free Websites For Small Business in Florida

Since Rick Scott took office, I have not agreed with much of what he’s done, especially for public safety and teachers where he cut 3% of their pay. That’s not what I’m writing about though. Just needed to get it out there that I DO NOT favor Rick Scott. Hate to mention something in the political realm…but I would not feel right If I made you wonder either way.

With that said, according to an article by FloridaRealtors.org, Rick Scott announced a partnership with Google to create free websites for small businesses throughout Florida.

Time to make some moves!

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – March 28, 2012

The initiative, “Florida Get Your Business Online,” will, according to Scott, help drive economic growth by giving Florida businesses the tools and resources they need to create a website, find new customers and grow.

For the next year, Florida businesses can go to http://www.floridagetonline.com to get a free website. Google partnered with Intuit to provide its Intuit Websites offerings that include an easy-to-build website, a customized domain name and free web hosting for one year. The offer includes tools, training and other resources.

Social Media Won’t Transform Corporate Recruiting Unless It Grows Up

Forbes.com – Drew Hansen:

In a blog post earlier this year, Chris Dixon stated that “predicting the future of the Internet is easy: anything it hasn’t yet dramatically transformed, it will.” Companies continue to rank recruiting talent as a high priority, but their methods have hardly evolved. At least not yet.

Sure, the internet has fostered some change. Candidates submit applications online, retained search firms update their databases with tidbits from email exchanges, and non-local candidates interview using Skype. But the process remains tied to a transactional tradition, relying heavily on a few brief interactions to judge a candidate’s skills, background, and fit with company culture.
