Configure Evernote For Offline Access on iPhone or iPod Touch Via IMAP

I recently started using Evernote to store all of the notes I take on a daily basis across plarforms. Evernote allows me to take notes and sync between numerous computers, my T-Mobile Blackberry Curve, and my iPod Touch. One thing that Evernote lacks is a solid method for accessing my notes when I am out of range of an Internet connection. I was pleased to learn that you can actually access your notes offline via IMAP and even though it is not ideal its good enough for now since every other part of Evernote is top notch.

Listen to Evernote Voice Notes Using Quicktime By Default

I recently started using Evernote to store all of the notes I take on a daily basis. This allows me to have a centralized storage location for all of my notes that I can access from multiple devices including many computers, iPhone, iPod Touch, the Internet, and my Blackberry 8320 Curve.  I was playing around with all of the different types of notes that you could take from the Blackberry device which included regular text notes, voice notes, camera snapshots, and uploading files.

After I took down a voice note with the Blackberry microphone I synchronized it with Evernote and attempted to listen to the voice note from my laptop Evernote installation.  It prompted me to install Real Player to be able to listen to the voice note however I am not a fan of Real Player and decided to find out why something else that was already installed would not play the voice note which had a .AMR ending.

Improved Method to Batch Resize Images in Adobe Photoshop CS4

I recently wrote an article on how to batch resize images in Adobe Photoshop CS4. If you have been reading any of my recent articles on the site you will know by know that I had a laptop hard drive crash and I lost some settings. One of the settings was the Photoshop Action I had created to batch resize images. Anyhow while configuring the Action I decided to play around more with Photoshop to see if there was another way to resize images and sure enough I found a better way if you don’t mind saving the images as JPEG’s instead of GIF’s.
