Khoi Vinh just posted an article on his blog about the Evernote iOS app that we released today and asked an interesting question.

The last week or so at Evernote have been absolutely insane as we’ve been making big announcements almost every single day. While the excitement has been high, the stress has been as well.

Chris Shiflett, a respected “web craftsman”, has put out a challenge to do more blogging and to show our appreciation of the medium.

Wacom Intuos5 Tablet with Gesture Support

Posted on: March 1, 2012

Wacom has introduced its newest tablet, the Intuos5. I have been using the Intuos4 for a little while now and have consistently felt that multi-touch gestures were severely missing.
