What's the best "personal memex" app out there right now?

After 7 years of lifehacking, I still haven't completed my info capture/search/relate process.

Certain workflows I've gotten to a point where I don't even think about it anymore. Todo's and projects I use +Todo.txt and email I use my 3-bucket Gmail system[1]. Events go in Google Calendar, stuff I want to read later goes into Instapaper. Recipes I want to try/cook again go in Evernote. Places/restaurants I want to visit sometime go in my Foursquare todo list. Blog post ideas go into WordPress drafts list.

But there's this grey area of stuff I find online that sort of relates to something I'm interested in or considering working on and I don't know where to put it. For example, I just found a "Pull to refresh" iOS controller [2] which is something we might find useful for the iOS app at some point in the future, but it's not a filed issue and it's not on my todo list (yet) and I haven't got the time to dive into it right now. I'm constantly finding articles that make impression on me that I might want to reference in a future post or podcast episode and but it's too easy to lose it the daily information onslaught.

Ages ago I used DevonThink when I was writing my book to organize, search and connect my research [3], but it feels like overkill for casual everyday use.

Where do you put stuff you might want to remember later? Evernote? Delicious? Pinboard? PDF library?
