Since 2010, I’ve been a subscriber to cloud-based note taking and storage service Evernote. Back then, it was hard to beat Evernote’s value proposition: easy, multi-platform note taking and storage, delivering access to your information from virtually anywhere, on any device. With its support for embedded assets, like PDF files, it was a great place not just for note taking as such, but for storing documents that you might want to refer to later. My account has (well, had) hundreds of notes, from to-do lists, to random stuff I don’t want to forget, to meeting minutes, to PDF owner’s manuals for cameras and cars and printers and home appliances — all easily searchable. But this week, I pulled the plug for good, just ahead of my account’s annual renewal.
