The Mac has no shortage of email applications, however I haven’t yet found one that can tear me away from Gmail’s web interface.

Marxico Brings Markdown to Evernote

I’ve been getting more and more into using markdown to take notes do to the simplicity. However, the biggest issue I have is that I haven’t found a good app that’ll keep all my notes together and synced across multiple platforms.

SwagBucks is just plain rude. This is email marketing done wrong.

I’m not sure who thought that this would be an appropriate message to send out to users, but my wife’s first instinct was to close her SwagBucks account.   I’m just baffled as to what company would treat their users like this.
