  1. Upgraded my Mac.. Did the Time Machine carry over. Even tried to re-install Evernote normally. Now my helper (Elephant in top bar) only launches if Evernote launches. aka need Evernote in my 'startup' program lists, to get to have the elephant, or at least manually start up Evernote. But before, there was a separate type of program that you could place in your login items called Evernotehelper. The functionality of the screen snap (Elephant helper) is definately something ideal for a startup program, whilst Evernote in itself is something I would rather start up when I actually need it.
  2. Stop saying rubbish. Popped in to see how the old friend I left was doing. I paid for Evernote, for many years. I was using the product a bit less, for a few months, so let my subscription end. Was going to pay again, but the two device limit plus steep price hike, meant that I would be held ransom to Evernote, for the rest of my life. notes belonged to me, so I just moved everything, to one note, and now pay for Microsoft services, that do just as much at a fraction of the cost. I had always planned to support Evernote. I loved it. And was going to get back to it. But then they appointed the failed google guy as the new CEO, to drive profits. He put in the two device limit... and Evernote seems to be steadily declining. Always sad to see a product people once loved, ***** it's customers in the back. Frankly, when they did the 2 device limit, I did something I would have never considered doing before. And that was open my eyes, to how much work was put into one note, and how it is actually a better product than Evernote.
  3. Oh give it a break... You are like an obsessed puppy. I posted some months ago, and you are still at it. Defending every move like a robot. And rest of SAME littermates, abusing new users as a gang as usual. I mean Scott summers is still here.
  4. How is it not? Trump's surveillance policy is abundantly clear.... Do americans just vote on exposed e-mails vs grabbing private parts and not listen to anything else they say? On second thought... cant be a far stretch, given the hours of air time, those two things were discussed by candidates in presidential debates on worldwide television.
  5. I saw that post, and it kills the functionality on demand completely. Especially with regard to phone use. no goodwill from this company. They forget their place, as a note taker. they have alienated a lot of people, whose whole lives don't center around Evernote. Some of those more 'casual' users, were paid users for many years, like myself.
  6. Rip Evernote.. Was a paid user for several years, but I will not commit a second more of my time and notes, to a company that requires a lifetime pay for its most fundamental use for me, which was instant access between devices. we all own a phone. So intersystem sharing impossible unless I don't have it on phone? so if I am a paid user... And then deside not to pay... Watever. I don't care if other options not as good. This is wrong on principle. we invested time in your product. We invested money, we supported it.. I recommended it to at least 100 people.. and you spit in our face like that? (Not to mention conveniently timed with 40 percent more for subscription.
  7. If you consider the Cyborg element of the human, imputing and extracting information, you could consider the internet etc. as AI. If you consider complete Artificial Independent though, without the impetus of any biological organism, there is still a way to go. Its a matter of definition I guess. Either way, for example Google's algorythm's are already discerning and presenting information for us in a way that is easier to access. The origin is human input, and the output is human consumption. But in the middle, its doing something we cant do ourselves. That you could consider is artificial intelligence. The next stage I guess, would be allieviating human input and output, whereby a machine self regulates the whole process. We are already Cyborgs, without realising it. Technology is all around us. its an extension of us. Some people have heart pacemakers allowing them to sustain life. Apple watch/google galss are wearables that extend us. Eventually we might see more ability to imput information (already happening) into transplanted devices. So at the end of the day, its a philosophical identification of definition. Do you consider AI something completely free of human input/output. Or is it the ability to control inputs and outputs? I dont think its a case of having 'free will'... Machines will never have much more free will than we have... Free will does not exist. We are also essentially processing inputs and outputs, from our genetics, and environment. Every single action we take is influenced since birth, time of birth, before birth, Neurochemical processes, evolution, how a stimuli of our environment interacts with us. Etc. We think that we think freely... But we dont really. Its all input-processing and output. The last definition of AI is impossible, as it has never existed in the world in us or another species. AI is just more input-processing-output, basically more independent processing, and depending on your definition, with or without human influence. (Yet we are part of the environment), so there will always be input, it just depends how much we 'believe' that input is part of our decision making processes, or perception that we actually have free will. We can consider ourselves part of the MAchines AI, or independent of it. Either way it exists in some way or form. Its basically about automation processess.. To make our lives easier... Or as Stephen Hawking warns, the biggest threat to humanity, if it this automation process puts it together that we are indeed the biggest threat and comes to the conclusion that we are neither necessary or good for the world. Which would probably be a very sound, and logical reasoning process.
  8. Interesting article: http://www.bbc.com/news/business-32628753 All this obsession on better 'productivity tools'... Maybe we are better off with type writers. Obsessions with features and how Evernote should be etc. in order to get more 'work done'... Yet I see guys like JMichael flooding the forum with every single glitch text for pages and pages each time their is a minor patch update.. Obsession with glithces... New features... Features we want, or dont want... Existent and non-existent. Obession with everything this little app has... People are disapointed and apparently looking for 'alternatives'... We hide behind a mask, called the 'Power User'... But I think its more a case of Power Procrastination. Have we lost the plot? Is this constant engagement on a forum for what is essentially an "app" not a bit OCD? Are we obsessing too much about our tools? And less about how work is actually done? Just a thought. Ok rant over. Just saying.
  9. I have said this countless times in previous threads... The Backspace to immediate delete in Evernote is rediculous... It should be Fn Backspace for Mac You think you are inside the document... holding backspace... And suddenly you lose 5 notes... And off you go fishing in the Trash... Sometimes you might not notice.. Which makes it even more dangerous.
  10. You were talking about 'bloat' on another thread.... This is the perfect example of bloat. There could be... But there shouldn't be.
  11. Thank you so much for clearing that up for me.... That helps a lot. I get it now.
  12. How exactly do tags work in shared notebooks? I am working collaboratively quite often with new users (Who I often make download and use Evernote). Suffice to say I am ussually doing most of the organisation of notes for them, to have some kind of order... The setting are users can: view and edit. I know I can tag notebooks any way I like... 1) Do they see/have access to my tags? Or Am I only one who can see the things I tag? 2) Can they add tags on a shared notebook? And if they add tags on my shared notebooks... Is it only for their eyes? Or do we all have the shared tags they decide to add? Thanks. Need to know this before I give advice for them on using tags to help me organise things systematically...
  13. I want to see more Heirarchial structures. I would like to see it in the form of 'ear-marked' tags... Where I can earmark some specific tags to Notebooks that show up next to the Notebooks in Notebook Pain. Essentially just tags with extra functionality. I.e. little red tags.. That visibly show next to the notebook I earmarked them to.. A visible hierarchy just like stacks with "clickability' to get to that 'subdivision' within the notebook they are earmarked to..... Nothing more... I think if they do that right they can satisfy the often requested sub-notebook. feature, without running from Evernote's tagging model.
  14. Yes Frank I personally believe you are absolutely correct.
