AdventNet Zoho Notebook
A powerful tool for creating, collecting, and sharing information; the beta version is rough around the edges.
- Good editing tools, effective collaboration features
- Lacks documentation, some performance bugs
Even in its current state, Zoho Notebook is well worth checking out if you need a home for brainstorming, research, and random data.
Take Microsoft's OneNote note-taking program, put it on the Web, add lots of cool collaborative tools, and make it free--and you'd have something resembling AdventNet's Zoho Notebook, a service from an ambitious purveyor of browser-based apps.
Like OneNote, Zoho Notebook lets you organize information into multiple-page on-screen binders. The information can include text, graphics, audio, video, and embedded content from other sites. I especially like how an entire notebook page can behave as a word processing document or a spreadsheet, complete with the powerful, Office-like editing tools from AdventNet's other services. Altogether, it's a powerful way to collect everything relating to a particular professional or personal project.
Zoho Notebook outshines OneNote (and Google Notebook, a relatively spartan Web-based rival) in the depth and breadth of its features for working on a notebook with other folks. You can share an entire notebook, individual pages, or specific objects (such as images), and you can grant colleagues either editing or read-only privileges. There's even a built-in chat window for exchanging IMs with distant collaborators. And you can publish notebooks and pages for anyone to peruse.
AdventNet labels Zoho Notebook as a beta, and the version I tried was indeed a little glitchy; in particular, some features you'd assume it would have were missing in action. For instance, you can't search your notebooks, and the program comes without any documentation. (A handy Firefox extension lets you clip content from other sites, but AdventNet doesn't explain what it is or how to use it.) The company says that search and help for Zoho Notebook may be up by the time you read this, and it's working on polishing the application in general.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications
I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)
It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.
I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
