Evernote's New Apps Will Help Make Your Over-Documenting Friends Even More Annoying

Hey look, I like the advanced notetaking tools we're afforded on our computers, smartphones and tablets as much as anyone. But there's a point at which your documentation of life just gets in the way of you actually living life. Case in point: Evernote's two new apps, Food and Hello.

Oh great, more tools for oversharing! Evernote food will allow you to "relive" your favorite meals, log the location and notes about the food. But while we're feverishly jotting down notes on that pork bun you just scarfed down in an attempt to make a moment of it, did we even take the time to even enjoy that food?

And then there's Hello, which is a glorified address book. People can add a name, photo, contact info, and then log everytime you run into someone. Why people would want to do this, I don't know.

But if you're one for keeping a digital scrapbook of all your life's minutae, ignore everything I just said and download the apps here and here. [Evernote]
