Evernote clearly is gonna teach me something
It was the best of times, It was the worst of times.
Evernote just announced a “distraction free reading experience” (I paraphrase), this will clear the clutter from the article your reading, so that you can read it free of ads and navigation. Also included is a functionality to save the webpage for reading later
Yeah, they’re pissing on instapaper’s parade. Will I stop using instapaper? Hard to tell as I use evernote regularly. Will instapaper survive? Are their core users like me, also regular users of evernote? (Instapaper’s functionality allows you to save the article to evernote if you “like” it, suggesting it was a requested feature).
However competition is good. Competition forces change, and a better user experience for the customer. I’m only addressing this as a question I get alot when I pose a new idea is “how do you protect yourself from the big players copying you”.
My answer has always been: “you can’t”.
Let’s see what instapaper do. I wanna learn.
