The e-Reader for Evernote
MY PERFECT CHRISTMAS present would be a Sony PRS-T2 e-reader because it boosts my Evernote productivity.
I have no real issues with my bog-standard Kindle but I need to squeeze more time for Evernote from my daily routine. I toggle into Evernote several times every day, seven days a week. I tell Evernote (via audio) where I've parked our car, I snap shots of warranties. I put all invoices into Evernote. I track expenses due from my employer through Evernote.
I also send direct messages from my Twitter into @myen. I highlight passages from books, websites and student submissions while I read. I write short summaries of audio I hear on the internet and on the radion into Evernote.
Sony's PRS-T2 has clever Evernote synchronity that would help me GTD. You set up your credentials on the device, log into Evernote, select a notebook to sync with the e-reader and you can see your Evernote life through that notebook.
I can also send content to the folder using Evernote Clearly in Chrome. Clearly's browser extension strips all the clutter off a page, and saves things without any baggage on the side or bottom or top. Clearly can save notes, create notes or scrape whole pages for reading later.
I wish the Evernote implementation in the Sony e-reader was more elegant. I have to manually send items from the reader to Evernote. That means I make several taps to switch from what I'm reading to Evernote to save and back again. That said, to have Evernote in the hand whenever I'm in an e-reading position is a big win all around.
