Computer Information: Keep Or Not To Keep ?

At present, man has become so busy the computer information that he increasingly is needed automation to deal with it, that is to restore order in their files, letters, photographs or documents. Each is painfully familiar with the situation when you know exactly what the file is you have to drive, but do not remember where – and the fun that full-text search finds nothing. The file is located in a month – it turns out, was called is not the case, and lay not there. Or need a file that has remained in office – and you're at home, or better yet – on a business trip. It is these applications that make life easier for the active user, and is dedicated to my review.

As has become clear from the above, there are two broad categories of problems to be solved such applications – is on the one hand, centralized storage of their information – files / notes / phone and on the other hand, systematization of their personal or corporate data, and, quite possibly, the combination of two. Let's start with a very interesting application DropBox (), and the only one whose essence in keeping their files in so- called the Cloud – a server on the Internet. That is, in simple words, you can write to a special folder on your computer, any file that is immediately synchronized with the server on the Internet and immediately become available owner from any other computer or even mobile phone. Very convenient – no need to carry a stick or send by mail. In the simplicity of the force. Went a little farther creators EverNote () – they not only place the user data in cloud and make them accessible from anywhere, but also offer the beginnings of systematization – to facilitate further search. In EverNote, all information is divided into pictures, notes and voice, as well as have an opportunity to tie each block information to a specific tag. Although it is worth noting that this feature is not home, and is not very convenient – in the depths of the interface that is easy to navigate through the information pushed to the background.

The creators of the third program – CuteTag () – On the contrary put forward the idea of organizing to the forefront. Tags displayed on the main screen and always in sight, though they have not yet properly synchronized with the server itself – or rather is in development according to Laid information on the site. In general, the idea of maximum simplicity dominates in such applications. For example, NotationalVelocity () is just a sample of simplicity: just one window, where you can enter any text, and if such word or phrase is already in the database – to give a hint. Following article I would like to devote the second aspect – the systematization and organization of information – and bring a number of interesting and fascinating programs dedicated to organizing information.
