| Evernote has added one of the most requested features to its iOS, Mac and Web apps, reminders. Available for all Evernote customers, the new option is represented with an alarm clock icon in the top-right corner of the web and Mac interfaces, and at the bottom of a note in the iOS apps. Reminders saved within the app will provide users with in-app alarms, as well as optional e-mail alerts when a reminder is due. Additionally, notes with reminders are automatically sorted into a new section at the top of the Note list, and can be reorganized by simply dragging them up or down.
Microsoft outs two new mice with Windows-dedictated functions
Two new mice, the Sculpt Comfort Mouse and Sculpt Mobile Mouse, optimized for use with Windows have been released by Microsoft. The Sculpt Comfort Mouse is the first mouse to feature the new Windows touch tab, a touch-sensitive strip for navigating through Windows 8. Tapping the center of the tab will switch users between their current app and the Start screen, while swiping up or down can be used to manage open apps. Meanwhile, the Sculpt Mobile Mouse features a dedicated Windows button for quick access to the Start screen. Both mice are available from Microsoft's online store for $40 and $30 respectively.
