  1. I've been an evernote premium customer for a few years now and pretty happy with the service. However, it has become clear that it's no longer possible to trust service providers with my data, despite the best intentions of the service providers to keep my data private. So, I'm hoping that Evernote will enhance their product to give users like me the option to use zero-knowledge encryption as GrumpyMonkey mentioned in his post: I understand this may cause some features, like server-side OCR to not work correctly (or at all). Maybe giving me the option to have my attachments OCR'd might be useful, perhaps some hand-waving assurances that you'll return the OCR'd info and destroy the object. Or maybe not at all. In this version of the product, EN is reduced to being a storage provider for my data synchronization needs as well as a supplier of high quality client applications. I'm now actively searching for a solution like this, perhaps built over a service like SpiderOak (that I try to use preferentially to DropBox) or something else. While I have particular reason to distrust EN as a service provider, it seems to me that to solve my problem I don't NEED to try my service provider, and as a matter of good hygiene, I probably shouldn't trust service providers unless absolutely need to.
