Noteclipping web service Evernote got an interesting writeup over at the Wired Compiler blog today. You may have used it before - it originally launched as a Windows app - but it's now available in Mac web and mobile versions. I was intrigued because it looks like it has some very cool image recognition capabilities - for example the ability to read handwriting or recognise words in pictures (so searching for the word Ninja will turn up a photo of a billboard with "Ninja" on it, for example). Another cool thing is that the service gives you a unique email address for uploading content to your Evernote account - anything you email will be automatically added to your default notebook.
You can see some of the cool features in the video above. I've applied for the beta - so if I get in I'll write up some more detailed notes on what it's like.
