2. What is OneNote• Microsoft OneNote (formerly called Microsoft Office OneNote) is a computer program for free-form information gathering and multi-user collaboration. It can gather users notes (handwritten or typed), drawings, screen clippings, and audio commentaries and share them with other users of Microsoft OneNote over the Internet.• Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onenote• History: – OneNote 2003 – OneNote 2007 – OneNote 2010

4. What is it really• The Coolest tool in the Office 2010 suite (and gasp! It is in every Office version – student to business to professional)• Killer app for note-taking (particularly IT Professionals, Students and those that have to accumulate and sift/manage lots of disparate data)• When collaborating with others, it is a kick ass WhiteBoard application as well• Image and Audio OCR in a snap• A great place to create drafts if you are an avid blogger• Great on a Microsoft Tablet (no, I don’t mean the iPad). I mean the Windows kind, with a stylus
5. Mobility Options• MobileNoter (sync with OneNote on your Desktop) – iPhone, iPad and Android – Can sync with SharePoint, because the sync happens with your desktop• OneNote for Mobile (from Microsoft) – Only synchronizes with Windows Live Skydrive or Dropbox; boo/hiss – iPhone, Android and Windows 7 Phone • pretty late to the party though… – Free for first 500 notes, paid version thereafter

8. OneNote vs. EverNote• OneNote is FAR more rich in overall features if you are a Windows User• However, EverNote is a great platform if you want to access your notes on any device, anywhere – but it sure ain’t OneNote… – OneNote needs competition though and I’m hoping the two continue to push each other… among the other masses of note takersI use both, though I use OneNote far more… and I’m hoping Microsoft comes tothe table soon with a better mobile option, specifically support for synching withSharePoint.
