Of all the companies in the web startup world, Zoho is perhaps the most persistent. Their office suite competes with the biggest player in the market, Google, but they tirelessly innovate, presenting new products and features on a monthly basis. That said, lately they've been focused on integrating and improving their existing services, and they haven't launched a new product in about a year. Create Your Own Forum With Zoho Discussions

Zoho, Evernote, reach out to disenfranchised Google Notebookers Last week Google announced plans to shut down or cease development of a number of products including Jaiku, Google Video, and Google Notebook.

Google isn't actually eliminting Google Notebook. You can still use the service.
