Comment Microsoft OneNote (Score 2) 134

I cannot read a maths book or paper without writing on it.

Microsoft OneNote is cloud-based with syncing, has drawing tools, OCR for image content, handwritten comments, and even a Maths editor, and can organize your stuff. There might even be a symbolic calculator buried somewhere in it. I use it on a Surface Pro; to make the handwritten annotation part work well you really need the Wacom Stylus.

There are a bunch of PDF readers on the PC and Mac which can annotate. I think they all export the annotated PDF, and a couple of smart folders or Google Drive might be enough to maintain a synced system.

Unfortunately, this whole area is one where proprietary is ahead of open source - OneNote and InkSeine are masterworks.

Comment Americans prefer safety to freedom (Score 2) 174

If none of the tech-savvy phone corps objected to turning over bulk data, when the process gave them that opportunity, one can conclude that Americans are mostly happy to the surveillance, probably because it gives them an illusion of safety.

I have a tip for our sheepish friends: Appoint a dictator, totalitarian regimes are much better at policing than democracies.
