  • Switched On: Taming Evernote's paper tiger

    Each week Ross Rubin contributes Switched On, a column about consumer technology.

    In April, Evernote CEO Phil Libin announced his company was getting into the hardware business — gradually, at first, by partnering with others. Carrying through on that intention at the company’s third developer’s conference in September, Evernote rolled out its first electronic product as part of Evernote Market. Amidst a number of bags and personal accessories (including what must be the most famous technology-related socks since the ones Apple offered as iPod cases), it introduced the ScanSnap Evernote Edition scanner. The sheet-fed paper ingester boasts a sleeker, more modern design than the Fujitsu original. However, it is already a bit behind the times when compared with, say, the latest cloud-centric WiFi models, such as the Brother ADS-1500W, Doxie Go and the new, high-end NeatConnect.


  • Redbox Instant hits Windows Phone, will remain Lumia-exclusive for 60 days

    After launching on iOS and Android almost a year ago, the mobile version of Redbox Instant by Verizon has finally arrived in the Windows Phone Store. Aside from a few cosmetic changes and added Live Tile support, the new app works exactly like its cross-platform counterparts, offering movie streaming and maps to nearby Redbox kiosks. An $8 monthly subscription also covers the rental fees for up to four DVDs, although customers can upgrade to Blu-ray discs for an additional dollar. The bad news is that the app’s exclusive to Nokia’s Lumia range right now — plebes with other WP8 devices will have to wait until the end of January for general availability.

  • IRL: the Samsung Galaxy Round is a curved Note 3 that costs way too much
    Welcome to IRL, an ongoing feature where we talk about the gadgets, apps and toys we’re using in real life and take a second look at products that already got the formal review treatment.

    IRL: the Samsung Galaxy Round is a curved Note 3 that costs way too much

    Flat smartphones are so early 2013; concave is the new hotness. At least, that’s what Samsung and LG might have you believe: both companies have brought new curved displays to a limited market for an extremely high price. The Samsung Galaxy Round and the LG G Flex probably won’t be on most people’s wish lists, as each one costs well above $900 in Korea. Still, we have a feeling we’ll be seeing plenty more (for a lower price) in the not-too-distant future. If this is indeed a sign of things to come, why shouldn’t we want to spend more time with the phone that started the whole craze? Fortunately for us, our friends at Negri Electronics — an online retailer which sells the Galaxy Round and G Flex — offered us the chance to use an imported Korean version for a few days. Take a look at the galleries below and read on for some detailed impressions.%Gallery-slideshow122862%

    Welcome to Time Machines, where we offer up a selection of mechanical oddities, milestone gadgets and unique inventions to test out your tech-history skills.

    Today the world can easily be captured in 1s and 0s for our viewing pleasure. The hardware behind this capability all started as a DIY lab project in 1974 to test out some new gear, and the result was a Frankenstein-like device that would eventually lead to world-changing advances in photographic technology. Head on past the break for the full story.
