Evernote is fantastic. I like to take notes. It helps me remember things. The problem is that I can't always remember where I took the note that I could really use right now. I find that I save files for all sorts of things, but as hard drives go bad or computers replaced, those things tend to disappear. Evernote solves those problems. You can clip websites, save notes, embed documents or files in a note and then organize them by notebook and tag. The ability to search by tag or by creation time (or even by checkboxes indicated a task to do) is invaluable. It even comes with an email address allowing you to email yourself notes with notebook and tags already assigned. I started using it for work, but I've found that it is so handy that it has expanded into my personal life as well.
