Connect your Google account to Evernote

Connect your Google account to Evernote:
I am probably not alone when I say that Evernote has become an indispensable piece of software. The free service works with Windows, Mac and Linux, as well as mobile operating systems, and even provides handy web browser plugins like Web Clipper. Of course, a Google account is also a must-have for many of us these days. Now a service called Everbot is looking to bring Evenote and Google together.
The startup provides plugins for both Gmail and Google Calendar that lets you interact with your Evernote account and share information between the two platforms.
Plugins are compatible across multiple browsers – Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari. The service is free and you will need to install separate plugins for both Gmail and Google Calendar.
Once installed you will need to connect it to both your Google account and Evernote account — this is done separately for each plugin. Once connected, you will find a new “Send to Evernote” button in each service. Clicking this will bring up a small dialogue box that allows you to choose which notebook you would like to save the item to. You can also add tags and comments to make your content easier to find via search. You now have access to the item from multiple Evernote platforms such as the web site and your mobile app on your smartphone.

This may not seem like a big deal because, after all, smartphones allow us to access our email and calendars on the go, but sometimes we are out of range of a cellular or WiFi connection. Evernote is almost constantly syncing, making it available even without 3G, 4G or WiFi. You can also categorize this information into dedicated notebooks, making it easier to find.
The apps are free and there are no ads included. Currently just Gmail and Google Calendar are available, but it appears that Everbot is planning to add Outlook support in the future, as it is listed on the website, but currently without a download link.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

Microsoft acquires iPhone email app Acompli

After accidentally announcing it a little early, Microsoft is officially confirming it has acquired email startup Acompli. The surprise acquisition means Microsoft is picking up a powerful email client for iPhone and Android in another move that further cements CEO Satya Nadella’s focus on cross-platform technologies. The Verge’s Casey Newton called Acompl "the Outlook for iPhone that Microsoft hasn’t yet built," and it seems Microsoft was equally impressed with the powerhouse email app. "We’re excited about what’s possible as we build on the app’s success and bring it together with work currently in progress by the Outlook team," the company said in a statement. "Our goal is to deliver fantastic cross-platform apps that support the variety of email services people use today and help them accomplish more." Recode first reportedthat Microsoft would make its latest acquisition official today; the company is said to be paying over $200 million for Acompli.

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…
