Instapaper: Save interesting web pages for reading later
Of all forms of literature, however, the essay is the one which least calls for the use of long words. The principle which controls it is simply that it should give pleasure; the desire which impels us when we take it from the shelf is simply to receive pleasure. Everything in an essay must be subdued to that end. It should lay us under a spell with its first word, and we should only wake, refreshed, with its last. In the interval we may pass through the most various experiences of amusement, surprise, interest, indignation; we may soar to the heights of fantasy with Lamb or plunge to the depths of wisdom with Bacon, but we must never be roused. The essay must lap us about and draw its curtain across the world.

Evernote has a new tool called Evernote Clearly- I love it in combination with Evernote. by kbpc172 Jan 13

I use it as a backup. For a year or so I used Evernote to create snapshots of web pages. Now, on a Mac, I am learning how to use DevonThink and DevonAgent so that I have better personal control on my data. Exporting from Evernote got to be messy. I use dropbox to keep a Mac Powerbook, an iMAC, an iPhone, and an iPad all in synce with DEVONThink. Not to shabby.
