[Update] The latest iteration of JoinTabs extension contains ad malware. Which sucks, because this used to be a useful extension.
I open a page in a new tab. Then another, then another. A bit later I pop a new window. More tabs. Then another window. By the end of the day not only do I have a bunch of tabs, but also multiple browser windows. Hunting for one of the windows is difficult – it can be just about anywhere. The solution? Join Tabs for Chrome. It’s creates a little horseshoe icon, which when pressed moves all of your open tabs into a single browser window.
Now if I could only import all the open windows into Evernote in one key press I’d be set.
Jesse Reklaw has a new Slow Wave book, The Night of Your Life, out. You can get signed copies from Slow Wave website or buy them at Amazon. Slow Wave is in the top 5 of my favorite comics, and Jesse drew the cat and programmer graphic used in the masthead of my site.
Evernote, my new memex, is a ridiculously sophisticated tool. Text recognition in is is beyond compare. Take a look at this screenshot: I was searching for a cellphone picture that I took of a Poetry in Motion poster that featured a photo of a subway mosaic created by one of my former co-workers:
Evernote is almost everything that I ever wanted in a Memex. It now even has a web component which will let me use it on Linux. The text recognition actually works and is useful, unlike what the retards at Riya were trying to do.
Evernote seems to be rapidly improving, in leaps and bounds. It was around for a while, but without web storage and access I wasn’t interested enough.
This is best symbolized by what I presume is an old logo, which is pretty lame:
The new logo, with an elephant (they never forget), a dog ear ear – now that’s recursive, and an overall look that would not be out of place on an early 20th century pencil box just simply rocks. There’s more hidden imagery in the elephant’s head. In any case, looks like a real pro made this logo.
