Google Keep

Watch out Evernote, Google is coming your way. Google is trying out a product similar to Evernote's popular note keeping service. It is called Google Keep. (If you have Google Drive.) There is also an app at Google Play. Here is a quick video:

Give it a try and see if it is better than Evernote or just a copycat service. But as a lot of people are saying on the Web, don't get too attached. Google has a habit of removing services that we all love.

RIP Google Reader.

Ebook Glue

I just got a tweet the other day about a new Website called Ebook Glue that lets you take a Blog, RSS feed, or Atom feed URL and turn it into an Ebook. It will give you a shareable link where you can download either ePub or Mobi formats. Here is an example of the Ebook for this blog. After trying it, the pictures and videos that are embedded did not show up, but the links and the text worked great.

I think this is a great tool for English or Language Arts teachers that want their students to write using blogs and then publish their finished products as Ebooks. Downloadable to your favorite device. Cool!

Thanks for the tweet Ron!
