Another observation on Evernote vs. OneNote

While watching this video on the new Evernote 5:

What’s new in Evernote 5 for Mac, video on Youtube

I reflected on the absence of anything related to creating and maintaining your notes. Everything in the video is about managing information that is already available in a notebook.

I guess that this is the main difference between Evernote (tagline: remember everything) and OneNote (tagline: keep tabs on your life?). Evernote is for storing readymade stuff that’s static and OneNote is for creating and working with structured pages of information that is easy to change and rearrange etc.

My biggest problem with Evernote is that it is impossible to use the editor for anything more advanced than plain text. My biggest problem with OneNote is that it is not flexible enough when it comes to sending information to a notebook and searching and tagging information.

So, as before I find myself using both platforms, Evernote for scanning, automations, archiving etc. and OneNote for my creation and editing of notes from meetings etc.

This is a follow-up on my post on Choosing between Evernote and OneNote and on  Automation: Using Evernote to store your life.

Observation: the future of titles, SEO for your song

In the age of Spotify, Pandora and similar connected music streaming applications it seems beneficial for artists and labels to SEO titles so that they appear in listings even when they are not directly related.

An example is Pernilla Andersson and her song “Johnny Cash & Nina P.” : Pernilla Andersson – Johnny Cash & Nina P.

Since it features the name of another artist in its title, it will show up in searches for Johnny Cash and expose it to a wider audience. If someone just plays the search result list for Cash, it will be played and the artist/label will receive payments for it.

I am sure there will be more creative uses of this type of revenue optimization in the near future.

Any other examples?
