Evernote Will Not Implement Its Controversial New Privacy Policy ➝

I’m glad that Evernote is reversing this decision, but I don’t think I can trust a company that needed to be convinced that this was a bad idea. If Evernote released this new privacy policy and no one complained, they would have started reading users’ notes with no remorse. That’s not a good sign about the integrity of those running the company.

Evernote Employees Can Read Your Notes, and There’s No Way to Opt-Out ➝

Thorin Klosowski, writing for Lifehacker:

In a recent update to its Privacy Policy set to go into effect on January 23, 2017, Evernote lays out how their machine learning technology will work, which most notably includes the fact that “human review is simply unavoidable.” The machine learning analyzes your notes, then provides a number of features, including improved search, learning how you use Evernote then showing you data specific to how you use it, and even detecting if you’re doing something like making a list then suggesting different features. In order to make sure their technology is operating as its supposed to, employees will need to look at the content of some notes.

Wow.

Evernote to End Support for Clearly, Evernote for Pebble, and Versions of Skitch ➝

Jack Hirsch, writing on Evernote’s weblog:

Specifically this means that as of today, we will no longer be making updates to these apps and as of January 22, they’ll no longer be available for download.

If you currently use any of these apps, you’ll find that they may continue to work for some time beyond January. We are not turning these apps “off,” but external changes like updates to your operating system or browser may break features or functionality at any point in the future.
