A new Android update for Evernote features a redesigned Evernote camera that makes capturing, managing and archiving scanned documents smoother and better than ever before.
When you take a picture of a document in automatic mode, Evernote’s in-app camera detects the document’s size and type and calibrates to take the best snap possible. Evernote then processes the image, crops it, and adjusts the contrast for a clear and crisp digital rendering. You don’t need to do anything else—just point the camera and let the app do all the work.
But wait, there is more! CLICK HERE to visit the Evernote blog to learn more about the new document scanning feature and the other neat updates.

Trying something new on the blog… This morning installed the WordPress editor on my Android tablet with the hope I can post content that I find quickly, “on the fly”, that I think is worth sharing. The posts will be minimalistic and simplistic in effect. Been blogging for nearly 8 years and is time to try something a little different to prevent blogger burnout.
If you have tried the Android version of the WordPress editor I would be interested in your thoughts … From what I am seeing so far, just from this posting, it is very limited in what you can and cannot do; however, may serve the purpose I am looking for.

Malwarebytes has a junkware removal tool that I was unaware about that will aggressively perform the following tasks:
- Removes adware that spawn popup ads, such as Conduit
- Uninstalls unwanted toolbars and browser helper objects, including the Ask and Babylon toolbars
- Removes potentially unwanted programs (PUPs)
- Cleans up traces left behind by PUPs
I am a big user of the Malwarebyte products and decided to give this tool a test run. To run the tool, simply download and run it. A command-line window will open up that will prompt you to hit a key on your keyboard to launch the program. If you have any browser windows open, they will automatically be closed. In the end I found that the tool is pretty aggressive in its’ cleaning to the point it actually removed one of my Chrome browser extensions that I use on a regular basis. With that being said, I recommend you make a note of what extensions you have. If you are in a situation where you find your PC running slow and suspect an infection, you may want to run this tool.

Free Alternative to Office365 Called Open365 – I Love Free Software has a great article about LibreOffice’s new alternative to Office365 called Open365. After reading the article I went ahead and opened an account (for FREE) at Open365 (which appears to be in beta). Once I opened the account, client software was downloaded to my PC; which, I opted to not install. Instead, I went directly to the cloud-based version of Open365. First impression, not bad… Will be keeping an eye on this.
