Evernote Adds Reminders To Help Users With To-Do's, Tasks & Projects
For those who use Evernote as a to-do list application, the service just became more useful today with the launch of a much-requested feature: reminders. Available to both Evernote and Evernote Business users on Mac, iOS and web (to start), the option now appears as an alarm clock icon at the top-right of the note on Mac and web, and the bottom of the note on mobile (iPhone and iPad). Though a seemingly minor addition, the feature actually addresses the top three user requests, Evenote’s VP of Marketing, Andrew Sinkov, explains in the official announcement about the release. Besides the reminders themselves, users wanted a way to more quickly created note-based to-do lists as well as pin notes to the top of their Note list. Now, all of these items are supported.

Firefox 21 Arrives
An anonymous reader writes "Mozilla on Tuesday officially launched Firefox 21 for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android. Improvements include the addition of multiple social providers on the desktop as well as open source fonts on Android. In the changelog, the company included an interesting point that's worth elaborating on: 'Preliminary implementation of Firefox Health Report.' Mozilla has revealed that FHR so far logs 'basic health information' about Firefox: time to start up, total running time, and number of crashes. Mozilla says the initial report is pretty simple but will grow 'in the coming months.' You can get it now from Mozilla."
Adobe Updates Creative Cloud With File, Settings And Preference Syncing, Deep Behance Social Integration
It’s a big day for Adobe today, as the company is announcing new versions of all of its Creative Suite and Edge developer tools at its Max conference in Los Angeles today. All of the Creative Suite tools like Photoshop and Illustrator will now allow users to save files directly to the Creative Cloud and access its community features, which will be powered by Behance, the company Adobe recently acquired. Creative Cloud now also allows you to sync all of your settings and fonts between multiple computers. Indeed, this syncing capability is, in many ways, the cornerstone of this release. Users, Adobe’s Scott Morris told me last week, will be able to automatically sync their fonts, colors and settings between multiple installs, no matter whether they are on a Mac or PC. A color scheme users create in Kuler, for example, will be immediately available in Illustrator CC, too (and Kuler is getting an iPhone app, too, which can now extract color schemes from any photo you take with your phone ...

Apple's next version of OS X, 10.9 is on the way, according to 9to5Mac, and will offer an improved multi-monitor experience, finally allowing users to run fullscreen apps on one monitor and access different desktop spaces or other fullscreen apps alongside those.

Google Apps For Business Admins Can Now Manage Chrome Settings And Enable Legacy Browser Support For Older Web Apps
Google today added a new feature to Google Apps for Business that could make its Chrome browser significantly more palatable for businesses. The company’s new cloud-based management tool for Google Apps for Business and Education customers now gives IT administrators the ability to customize more than 100 Chrome policies and preferences for their users right from the standard Google Admin panel or through Windows Group Policies for managed devices.
