I know you already made your decision, but I really enjoyed using Evernote on my iPad in UG. It worked well for what I needed it to: Note taking.
You still have the ability to do a lot of the formatting stuff, and obviously it was very nice having it linked to all of my Apple products.

Oh and free


Yeah, I just downloaded it to my Mac and iPad and played around a little (yes, I did make folders for my first semester courses #gunners4lyfe) and it looks pretty legit. I don't need it to do anything fancy, so there's no reason for me to pay a lot for something else. Plus, the whole Tobias Funke thing. It's a win-win-win.

And now you get to intimidate others cuz they'll see you aren't running basic Word. Scare people into thinking you're a gunner

Very true. I was just talking with one of my LOR writers (a Harvard JD) and he was saying how my first year, I should try to stay out of the competitive/gunner atmosphere because it wil just be a distraction and my time will be better spent focusing on studying (probably good advice) and not on what other students are doing. But I think I'm going to temper his advice with my natural tendencies and pursue a "speak softly and carry a big stick [note taking software]" philosophy.

Nevermind, I just checked out Evernote and was reading their tutorial. I realized on their sample notes, the name is listed as Tobias Funke. My decision is made.


Right?!

Is it safe to say that because a new MacBook Pro has not yet been introduced, one will not be forthcoming?

I don't believe so. Word leading up to WWDC was they weren't going too. They released a new Mac Pro (desktop) and announced osx 7.

I was looking at the Air more because of size and cost.

Without hjacking the thread, so if I want to tap into 802.11 ac WiFi, then I have have to go with an Air?

Finally watching Game of Thrones (in the middle of Season 2 right now). Every time I start a new episode, I'm afraid another character I like will get the axe. Or the sword. Or the boar.

Started the Insanity workout series. 60 workouts in 60 days brings me to right around my moving to LS.

Yup, a few days in Santiago and Valparaíso (solely for the ascensores) followed by almost two weeks hiking through the Andes in Peru. My goal is to find a 4G dead spot in some remote village, where I can completely ignore the fact that the rest of the world exists. I think that'll be good practice for finals time.

I think this can qualify as 0L prep. Observe the intrigue and deception of many of the show's characters to better understand the ways of the gunner.

Don't be a Jon in law school. By helping others, you get screwed over and have to go to the far north to freeze your ass off.

Read GTM on my honeymoon. Just ordered 1L of a Ride and LSC. Thinking about LEEWS. Just realized I have OneNote 07. Guess I'll try that out...

Haha, it wasn't too bad actually. Being at the beach might have made it more bearable. Besides the policy sections I think I could have gotten most of it just from reading guides on TLS, although my guess is that most of the people writing those guides are gleaning from GTM, among other books. I didn't read the example sections yet, so maybe those will be helpful the second or third time I read it.

LEEWS or OneNote? Either way, care to elaborate? I have no experience with either.
