3 next-level note-taking apps that'll change the way you work

Riddle me this: What exactly is a "note-taking app"?It seems almost painfully obvious, I know — but it's a question I've found myself struggling to answer as I've been exploring a new breed of information-storing services.The services allow you to collect and organize thoughts, lists, and all sorts of other materials.

The Poly Studio P15: Searching for a better home videoconferencing answer

Like many of my peers during the pandemic, I’ve been living off a Logitech Brio camera, which was considered the best in the market until recently.  The problem is that Logitech didn’t seem to understand how important this camera had become and refused to support it properly.  (It has driver issues with AMD-based PCs, the company won’t address them, the initial application support ended, and much of it doesn’t work anymore. Most other cameras on the market arrived before COVID-29 and were more designed for infrequent use when traveling — not for permanent use from a home office.  Yes, you can get conference room systems and adapt them for the home, but that is a wicked expensive path — and people don’t have conference rooms at home. To read this article in full, please click here

Android 12 and the big deal with little touches

Ahh — can you smell it? The scent of freshly baking Android software is very much in the air this week, as Android 12's first official developer preview teases us with a tiny taste of what's to come.Google launched the inaugural public version of Android 12 last week, and the internet's many software-sniffing sleuths have been hard at work pokin' around and clawing at its many crevices to uncover every last hint of the treats lurking within.So far, Android 12 doesn't look like much — and for good reason: This latest Android version really is a true developer preview, with mostly just technical changes aimed at, y'know, developers. It actually makes an awful lot of sense, even if Android previews in the past have generally been a little more elaborate early on.To read this article in full, please click here

Microsoft plans to upgrade the "perpetual" Office for enterprises in the second half of the year, when it will also slash support to five years and raise prices by 10%.The company's multiple shots at the traditional form of licensing — dubbed "perpetual" because the license provides rights to run the software as long as one wants — are more evidence, if it's needed, that Microsoft is eager to push, pull, and prod commercial customers into service-esque subscriptions.[ Related: 10 productivity-boosting apps for Microsoft Teams ] Microsoft reiterated, seemingly for the nth time, that it is expending virtually all of its Office-related resources on the subscription-based Office 365 and Microsoft 365, and implied that anything but a subscription would be second rate and substandard.To read this article in full, please click here
