I continue to find new uses for Evernote, my ubiquitous memory. Evernote is the web and desktop services that allows you to capture just about anything, anywhere.
I had this recipe that sounded pretty good that I had torn off of a rice package. I wanted to put it somewhere I’d be able to find it again. So, I held it up to my webcam, took a shot and then dropped the image on the Evernote icon, that took care of putting it in my PC desktop Evernote database, also uploading it to the web and then running it through their text recognition technology making the entire recipe searchable — see the highlighted search terms “rice and cream” in the image from Evernote. Also nicely done since Evernote synchronizes, the recipe will also be available on my MacBook.
