Evernote is About to Limit Basic Accounts to Just Two Devices, Raise Prices

Big user of Evernote? Hopefully, for your sake, you either pay for their premium tiers or you don’t use it on more than two devices. Why do I say that? Because this week, Evernote announced that its free tier, otherwise known as Evernote Basic, will start limiting users to access on just two devices. They are also adjusting Plus and Premium price tiers for new subscribers.

Evernote penned a pretty straight forward blog post to touch on each of these topics, saying that exactly what you expected them to say – they’d rather not do this, but keeping this best-in-class note app updated and innovative going forward costs money.  (more…)

Facebook News Feed to Show More Friends, Less Pages

Facebook is revamping your News Feed yet again, but this time, actually has its user’s interests and not business in mind. Shocking, I know. Over the next few weeks, your News Feed will now display more posts from your friends and family (or whoever you follow on FB), instead of making Pages a priority.

These changes will primarily affect those who have many friends, as it’s possible that many status updates are being missed due to how many folks you follow. To ensure you are not missing those pregnancy announcements or new puppy dog pictures, News Feed will be making a priority of bringing those posts to the top.  (more…)

Monday Poll: Do You Use a Custom ROM?

It’s no secret, we have pretty much entirely stopped talking about custom ROMs. Sure, we used to adore them and use them on all of our phones, but that was years ago. Times have changed, Android has matured, and frankly, custom ROMs don’t offer all that much these days in terms of added benefits over running whatever stock software your device comes with.

While the arguments that are pro the usage of custom ROMs will always be legitimate, such as custom themes and the de-bloating of smartphones thanks to added privileges, I would argue that the number one reason for rooting and ROM’ing back in the day was speed. With a custom ROM, you could load up a hotrod kernel, overclock that puppy, and all of a sudden your OG DROID is running like a million bucks. Ah, yes, those were good times, but sadly, like everything else, all good things must come to an end.

So, have your rooting and custom ROM days passed, or are you still clinging onto them? And if you are, please, share your wisdom with us non-custom ROM common folk.

Do you use a custom ROM?
