Meh. Enjoy my grocery lists I guess.
 
2013-03-05 08:38:26 AM
Hrm. I guess I shouldn't have listed all my sites, logins, and passwords in plaintext there.

What? I hate passwords. :\

Fortunately the only thing I store in my Evernote account is pictures of my junk.

I will now lose several hours today out of concern that logs of my non-classified work activities will be accessed by unknown third parties.

Karma for entrusting a company money to hold on to your Post Its?

Well...

Pen and paper--the only secure way.

Evernote lost me after the seemingly hourly updates to their apps, and the decision to completely fark the interface around when it was perfectly fine before.

Someone got a couple notes detailing what I needed to be doing at work back in October.  I hope it's useful to them.

"What's not good news," he wrote, "is that the hackers now have access to the usernames and email addresses of Evernote customers. It is easy to imagine how this information could be abused -- for instance, the hackers could send out spam emails to those users claiming to come from Evernote, and trick them into visiting a malicious website.

Yeah, I noticed an uptick in the Nigerian email scam messages this weekend. Still nothing major, 2 or 3 over the course of the weekend. Gotta love the Gmail Spam filter though, almost nothing makes it into my regular Inbox that isn't legit.

Like many here, I don't have anything really secure stored on Evernote. Grocery lists, a list of needed car repairs, broken down by car, and some notes from various computer deployments. No big deal, I changed my password, and I'll continue to use Evernote. II love it, and the cross-platform syncing is worth a mountain of gold.

I like the interface just fine (on Android, that is).  What amazes me is that Evernote wants to charge you a monthly subscription if you want the option of storing your notes on your own device.

Which they already are stored on your own device.  Evernote just doesn't want you to know that.

The only thing I keep in my evernote folders are before and after pictures of my weight loss experiment....never got around to posting the after pictures.  Enjoy hackers!

I feel like I've seen that somewhere on lappy, like a green icon with a um, elephant? or something.

\serious questions.

You write notes in it. They sync with the Evernote servers. You can access your notes on any device with an Evernote app.

It's not the notepad that's always open on Win 7 is it? Yellowish look, little lines a cursive-ish script used. After reset it's still on my destktop.

Also, thanks.

They can find a picture of my grandfather's draft registration card from WW2. Dude was 50 years old and still had to register for the draft.

My favorite part: in the space for "phone", he wrote "none". Which was probably not an uncommon answer back then.

No, thats the built in windows Sticky Notes program. Which everybody uses like they used to use notepad, but it autosaves if your computer restarts, which is nice. Evernote is as described, notes synced across devices. Its nice because i can write like a grocery list on my PC, copy and paste from recipes etc and other things then have it on my phone. Also nice in reverse, if i remember something i can add it to the grocery list quick from my phone. Me and my fiancee share an account so weve always got an up to date shopping list on our smartphones if she decides to stop at the store after work or something.

That actually sounds kinda useful when used the right way. I personally don't think I have a need for it, but if I did that's how I would want it set up. thanks.

Okay, so the got my recipe book, the notes I took while I was studying for my CA insurance licensing, and some survival preparedness stuff my husband wanted me to read that I never got around to reading. Oh noes!

I saw this checked my long inactive account and saw where I put a long forgotten list that included call septic service and there info, maybe they get some business out of this or hopefully the get spammed they stunk
 
2013-03-05 08:54:49 PM
And they didn't actually get the content of the accounts-- Just usernames and passwords.

So your grocery lists are safe.

They got a chocolate banana bread recipe from my Dad's side of the family and some notes on which vaccinations my foster kittens got, what I fed them, and their weights.
