About Howard Lee Harkness

  1. That's called voting with your wallet. Hope it works. And if you should find what you are seeking, let us all know.
  2. Try marching into Wal-Mart and demanding that they sell you a car. If you are lucky, you will only get laughed at. But since you think that sort of thing is ok, maybe I should demand that you write an EverNote replacement that will run on Linux. See how well that works? If somebody *does* write an EverNote replacement that is suitably cross-platform, I may well buy it -- and drop my premium subscription to EverNote, even though the cost only amounts to a flea-bite. But jumping up and down and pitching a fit because EverNote doesn't see fit to do it is unlikely to accomplish much -- except getting yourself laughed at.
  3. I'd love to see Evernote for Linux. However, I don't feel entitled to demand that Evernote produce something they consider to be uneconomical, or don't think they have the resources to accomplish. That's up to the market. Evernote is a great product, even if the Linux access is limited to a browser, but if any of you folks would like to do one better, let me know. If there is ever something comparable for Linux that is cross-platform (so I can use it from my Android, my iMac, and my Windoze systems), I will sign up for that in a heartbeat (assuming there is some way to migrate my current database), and quit paying for Evernote. Until then, I'll just use Evernote.
  4. Since Evernote makes a very nice plugin for FireFox (which I'm running on my Ubuntu 14.04 LTS system right now), I'm a bit puzzled by all the vitriol in this thread. The plugin works cross-platform just fine. The web app seems a bit clunky, but I understand it has substantially improved, which implies that it will continue to improve in the future. There is a native app for Android -- did Evernote do that one? The device on which I use Evernote the most is my Android phone, at least for looking up stuff. On my Windoze and Linux systems, I mostly use the FireFox plugin. I already consider Evernote to be something that resides in the "cloud" and is accessed via a browser (mostly). It certainly appears that is the direction that the Evernote company is headed. Any rate, Evernote (I'm a premium user) is something I use pretty much everywhere. Except on my computer at work, because the company won't allow it. But for there, I have my smartphone.
