Could you really and truly go completely paperless?
July 3, 2013 | 7:05 pm

paper-free In a recent post, GigaOM presented this intriguing question: Can you really go paper-free? This is a timely article for me: The article's author, Eliza Kern, found the occasional need for a printer to be the bugbear in her quest to go paperless, and as it happens, I just spent two days giving tech support to my parents for their new computer, only to find that they are keeping the old one, after all. Their new computer, it turns out, is not compatible with the otherwise perfectly fine printer they've had for a decade, and when I replied with, "So what?" my stepfather...

April 24, 2013 | 11:15 am

EvernoteThe Ultimate Evernote Guide: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6 In this final installment of our Evernote series, we'll look at some apps you can use to extend Evernote's functionality. Apps allow you to easily create and manage notes which have special features; any notes you create using the special app will get grouped into their own special notebook or notebooks; these will be visible to you from within your core Evernote app as well, but your other notebooks from there will not transfer over to these additional apps.

EvernoteThe Ultimate Evernote Guide: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 In two of our previous installments, we explored the app versions of the Evernote ecosystem. We touched upon using your mobile device's camera to save screenshots or on-the-go info. But I was delighted to find that Evernote has a scanner feature that is actually quite powerful, and which produces a sometimes clearer picture than just using the camera alone.

EvernoteThe Ultimate Evernote Guide: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 TeleRead's Joanna Cabot has been doing a great job with her still-ongoing Evernote Guide, and she asked me to contribute an article on Evernote for Android. While the Android version has all the same basic functionality of the iPad version, Android's Share feature is more powerful than the iOS share, and this opens up options you don't have in the iOS version.

EvernoteThe Ultimate Evernote Guide: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 Welcome to Part 3 of our Evernote series! We've been sticking mostly to the desktop so far because it's the most full-featured. But there are advantages to using the mobile apps as well.

Let's say, for instance, that you are a Zinio user and you have an article you want to clip from one of your magazines. I...
