I do lots of research and within a few weeks of getting Evernote I went Premium. I love it! BUT, these frequent updates are just plain stupid. There is no way any developer is making improvements that damed fast! I get annoyed with other programs as well...usually the free ones which keep offering updates as a way of data mining, or planting mines within your system. 99.99% of the programs I pay for don't do this. They are well thought out from the beginning and only update 2 or 3 times a year. Neither do they crash or cause other headaches. Before Evernote I simply kept Favorites lists and had no real issue with copying and pasting into WORD or some such. Though Evernote makes things easier I am always quick to remind them and any other entity, group, or person in my life of that old addage (and song), "Got along without you before I met you, gonna get along without you now." Google Chrome is a good example. Everybody swoons over it and I loved it, UNTIL it started crashing because of Adobe Flash and Shockwave players. Neither Google or Adobe seem to want to adress the issue. So, ***** 'EM. Firefox was decent before Chrome, and it's just as decent now.
