Jott has just announced that they are ending their free service as of February 2. I was considering upgrading to their paid service anyhow so I could send notes directly to Nozbe, but I hate that they’re losing the free service. I’m torn as to whether I should pay for that service or switch to something like Dial2Do and hope that they include Nozbe support in the future. I’m thinking I’ll pay for Jott (it’s only $4/month), but we’ll see.
The other bad news involves Google Notebook. Google just announced that they’re closing up some services and ceasing development on some others. They’re effectively dumping Jaiku and Dodgeball, and slowing closing out Google Video (which was a long time coming, since they own YouTube). The official word on Google Notebook is:
Starting next week, we plan to stop active development on Google Notebook. This means we’ll no longer be adding features or offer Notebook for new users. But don’t fret, we’ll continue to maintain service for those of you who’ve already signed up. As part of this plan, however, we will no longer support the Notebook Extension, but as always users who have already signed up will continue to have access to their data via the web interface at http://www.google.com/notebook.
I’ve been trying to decide whether to stick with Google Notebook or move all of that content to Evernote. I think that decision has just been made.
