When did this cleverness sneak into an app I could download and use for free!?

It's a great place to store your ideas and research - not many other services satisfy this need. I think we will be seeing Evernote in 5 years time.

No thanks. I prefer to stay ORGANISED in the first place. The search/indexing giants are making a killing on the fact that most people are lazy and can't be bothered to organise their inbox properly in order to be able to find things. Not only that, they seem to be encouraging it!! Like Hotmail once said "no need to ever delete an email again". Actually, I can think of a few reasons to delete old emails, storage capacity not being one of them.Need to send a big file to someone? No problem, I have a decent net connection so run my own Web and FTP server so I just provide a link to my servers; when done, close the ports again.I am very dubious of all the cloud based things that are going on right now (and still to come). I like being in control of my own OS, what documents I create (and how) and can relax knowing it's backed up and there's no chance of a cloud hosting going bust - I wonder what would happen to the data stored on there then, I guess the company who buys them out would "own" it and could easily change the T&Cs (facebook anyone) to their own needs.To question wizzardsblog about his/her comment: "I have so many things running around in my head at any given moment and this would be ideal as I don't always have a pen and paper handy." I take it that you always have a PC and internet connection handy then?Anyway, you guys can give your private data and thoughts to whoever you like, mine stay mine with no chance of leeks, data loss or theft.

We are considering how we could set up some kind of trust to ensure that, when we are gone, the site will be maintained. This may be an issue that site owners, generally, do not put much thought into.

But it should be - because I for one am very nervous about it and am fed up with creating identities simply to avoid the auto-links to whatever-mail whenever I find something useful (like NetVibes, which I still don't trust).

I've just set up an account. I have so many things running around in my head at any given moment and this would be ideal as I don't always have a pen and paper handy.

I use dropbox, I can put just about any file on there (an impressive 25GB storage) and can make them public or private. I can download smaller ones to my phone should I wish to (or large ones, but that would take ages without wi-fi) and you don't have to use an app to make it work. They too have a premium version with more storage but also a referral system so you get more storage the more friends you refer. I don't use it regularly but it has come in handy a few times for sending big files to friends. Thu 07 May 2009 13:43:43 GMT+1
