Missing Evernote

You never know how good you have it until it's gone – and I'm talking specifically about Evernote. Yes, Evernote has its flaws (well, actually only one real flaw for my use and that's the lack of offline synchronization for Windows mobile) but it works very well for me. I've been playing with a lot of Fuze ROMS lately and flipping between the Energy, PROven and At0mAng ROMS because of perceived instability on my part. I'm back to PROven but on version 3.0 and after 4 hours of "testing" it seems to work fine. I'm kind of hesistant to say it's stable though. It's far too early to declare it. I usually don't find instability until about 3 or 4 days from now.

One of the major reasons why I decided to go back to trying a different ROM was because I was having a number of issues with it. One of the more major ones was the ability to sync with Evernote. Evernote has quickly been a staple of the means to how I blog. Even though I'm writing this on my Windows notebook, I'm actually writing this on Evernote just in case I don't finish my thoughts tonight and decide to write this later. There is a certain amount of safety in knowing that it is going to sync with a server some where.
On another side note, I was quite surprised that support for Evernote was actually rather sparse. I tweeted about my frustration about not being able to sync as well as used their GetSatisfaction site. I never got nary a response from anyone. I have to admit that I was quite disappointed by that.

Asus is Awesome

those of you who have been following my Tweets, you might remember my
complaints about a green line appearing on the screen of my Asus R1F.
This generally happens, especially with LCD screens. Anyway, I was
debating whether or not to take the opportunity to pick up an R1E but
there isn't enough of an incentive to pick one since the hardware specs
are about the same. So I opted to try to fix it.

So I called
Asus in the afternoon, from my phone number they were able to confirm
my asset and contact info. They emailed me my RMA number without even
having to ask me for my email. CRM at its best. How amazing is that.
One of the major benefits of buying an Asus notebook is that the repair
centre is a 10 minute drive from me. When I dropped off my notebook,
the technician did a quick assessment and said that it would take a
couple hours to fix. That came as a surprise. My previous experience is
that it typically takes around 3 days. I was pleasantly surprised when
I got a call in about an hour to say my notebook was fixed.

have 3 Asus notebooks now and have had to do warranty repairs on all of
them to date. Most of them were human fault rather than manufacturing
fault (i.e. Niece falling on screen, dropping of device, etc). Even
though they are more expensive to purchase, the warranty and level of
service have made it all worthwhile. I will continue to be a loyal Asus
purchaser after this.
