  1. Hmmm....now that I am running the EN web version, the App Store still shows EN installed. Will my mac update with the app store version when a new verion comes out? ( I have auto-update enabled) If so, will this cause problems with the homebrew EN currently installed? Thanks!
  2. Thanks, I followed your suggestions to uninstall the App Store Version and switch to the EN homebrew version.
  3. Let me just say, the backpacks are "cute"....well, sorta... I don't think EN can conitue to expand in this environment without encryption. Google, Apple, Yahoo, and others are adding encryption services in light of new revalations and hacking attempts. Evernote will have to, also.
  4. Evernote IS the best at what it does. Nothing else comes close...trust me, I have searched. Third party app integration is excellent. Sync works great. It's available for almost every platform. So instead of waiting on the encryption, I have started using Local Notebooks more...and not sending docs to EN via File This Fetch. (Use the Mac instead.) Still hoping...
  5. I honeslty can't image how EN expects to capitalize on the business sector without encryption...
  6. I agree. I don't use the service for financial accounts, but I do love it for utility bills!!!
  7. I have used FTF for a year or so now and been very happy. FYI, all user data is encrypted (passwords / logins / channels) , you can read their security write up. Docs are not stored on their servers, instead sent directly to your destination of choice. https://filethis.com/fetch/about/security/ I confirmed at least their web connection does indeed use 256 bit AES, with PFS. I recently STOPPED using evernote to store the downloaded statements. I now download directly to my desktop. Until EN addresses encryption issues, I don't feel secure storing docs in plaintext up in the cloud.
  8. I don't believe this. Here is why. Edward Snowden stated: http://www.businessinsider.com/edward-snowden-email-encryption-works-against-the-nsa-2013-6 AND Bruce Scheier has already stated NOT to use EC. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/sep/05/nsa-how-to-remain-secure-surveillance Scheier also states: What I glean from all this is the fact that stronger crypto systems have the best chance of working. But even better would be non-NSA influenced ciphers; Twofish and Threefish come to mind. Apart from the latter, and One Time Pads, AES256 seems to be the best choice. (Although adopted by the NSA, it is my understanding it was not developed by the NSA. Instead it was the "winner" in a search for a new crypto system. The winner: Rijndael) (PS I am not a cryptographer, but I follow those that are.)
  9. This is good news indeed!!!!! I prefer client-side key storage, but hey, right now in this environment, I'll take anything.
  10. Forget it folks, I, and many others have tried...they don't want to hear it. Some "antis" here are more vocal than others.
