This one could perhaps be useful for some it is a notetaking  app that uses mind mapping. Actually a very powerful app already, if there would be smartphone apps to it as well, I think it can be an EverNote competitor. I will advise everybody to register and see for yourself. This could really help many of us. 
germ.io is a personal productivity tool that lets you get from ideas to execution

+Hildegerd Haugen Right now I'm looking at Kanbanize, which provides a lot of options regarding the cards you create.  More color, the cards are more customizable (just having rich-text options is a big deal to me), subtasks, custom fields, GDrive/Dropbox integration, and more.  They're also running a closed beta right now to add runtime policies (some basic if/then/and/true/false functionality applied to cards).  I may not play with all the options, but I like what I see.  :)

It's more expensive than Trello, which is a downside (free trial has generous limits, but still limits; cheapest plan is $9/month); since I'm just looking for a solution to use by myself, how much is that worth to me?  Also, the Android app looks sorely limited right now, without much indication that it will improve.  I'll run through the trial and see how it does, and if the Android app ever improves.

You probably didn't but I missed this at Springpad's closing.
Fairly in depth.
At the risk of drudging up useless frustration here it is.

+Sergei Agarkoff​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ I do....if for nothing else not personally engaging their user base well beforehand about the situation they were facing. (This after all was a team renowned for its user base communication).
Instead of maning up with us they dumped it on non decision makers to announce it to us last minute.
I don't know any particulars, but it's hard to believe after laying out the scenario for us, that for example the vast amount of those 5million users wouldn't pay at least what Evernote charges yearly...
Let's say 3,500,000 users subscribed...that's $157million yearly....above and beyond their existing revenues.
That's a hell of a band-aid til they get their bigger picture together.
I really think they just wanted to move on and not be bothered with it.

Yeah, as much as I praise the brilliant creation of theirs....I equally condemn their lack of visible attempts to salvage the product or engadgement when their users needed it most and deserved it.

Welcome update makes the OneNote Clipper a whole lot more useful. Still frustrating not to be able to select an area below your screen area though.
Today, we're introducing OneNote Clipper 2.0—a major update to the OneNote Clipper that offers enhancements for capturing web content into OneNote, and enriching that content to make it more useful. Responding to some of the more popular requests from Clipper users, in this update we have added a redesigned user interface, a location picker, intelligence (for clipping just what you need, minus the clutter), and region clipping for Chrome.

Fireshot (a Firefox add-on) is the one capture selector I've seen that can grab below the screen.  It will scroll when you tell it to.  Unfortunately, can't find a free working copy for IE or Chrome.  SnagIt works, but I don't think they have a free version anymore.

Funny Title. Perhaps useful product? 
The Rocketbook is a regular paper notebook. But a couple of technological tricks make it easy to electronically back up its contents and erase the pages.

The Pilot website, the one the makes the Frixion pens, says the ink will reappear if it gets to a certain temp, so yeah, the freezer would probably do it.

I liked that you can choose different layout, wish more developers could think of that.

This would have been perfect if it had been a web app, I could then actually forgive them for the fact that there is no android app, i mean they are devoted to Apple after all. Anyway, I have their writing app Typed, love it and are looking forward to their blogging platform that launches soon. 
Take screenshots, capture full webpages and much more with Ember. Ember is the critically-acclaimed app that helps creative people like you store the images that inspire them.

So as a requirement for work I'm taking a much closer look at OneNote as not only a capture tool but a sharing tool. So far I've made the following observations:

1. I like the desktop application better than Evernote
2. The mobile client is weak and lacking in functionality
3. Who the hell decided syncing after every change was a good idea?

This one is fun, for Android too now. You can integrate with EN if you want to. Reminds me a lot of Any.do, though, just cuter colours.

The latest update to chrome clips a screenshot and enbolded heading when Clipping sites. I like at least having thumbnails on my notes list. Helps with apps that only clip urls.
Scroll to the part of the page you want as thumbnail, and share.

I've just noticed something - apparently you can open more than one Google Drive open in the same browser now. In the past, it wouldn't allow you to do that.
It's useful for those who frequently use multiple Drive accounts, I guess.
Unfortunately, this doesn't extend to Docs, Sheets or Slides - those are still bound to one Google account per browser.

EDIT: What I meant by 'browser' was that Google accounts are tied to the particular browser - or in Chrome's case, browser profile - it's signed into. If you have multiple Chrome profiles, you can use a different account for each - and all features, including the Drive suite - will work.

I do the multiple account thing too - it's just easier for me.  That way, I can also copy and paste from one to another if I need to.  :)

I have not registered, but it look like it could be a cool tool for some of us. 
Never stare at a blank page again. Mix is the fastest way to start creating—find templates, get feedback, and meet new collaborators.
