Over the last few months, mobile computing via iPad and now iPhone has become a more frequent occurrence in my day-to-day work between the variety of meetings and the plethora of possible locations for those meetings.

- Evernote for Students: The Ultimate Research Tool – Education Series
- Provides info on Web Clipping (aka taking snapshots of parts of a webpage and including that as a note)
