Ever­note Adds Hand­writ­ing Sup­port to its App

Ever­note has noted that users want to quickly note down or draw a sketch in­stead of just typ­ing things out. Be­cause of that need, the Ever­note app has in­cluded hand­writ­ing sup­port in its lat­est up­date. Users can now write notes or draw il­lus­tra­tions us­ing a sty­lus or their fin­ger quickly and save it for later. To start writ­ing in Ever­note, users sim­ply have to tap the paper­clip icon and then the pen icon. Users can also search their notes for hand­writ­ten notes, thanks to Ever­note’s search tool for added con­ve­nience.

Mi­crosoft-Nokia Deal Faces Re­sis­tance in Korea

With Mi­crosoft still fi­nal­iz­ing its ac­qui­si­tion of Nokia, the deal it­self has not been well re­ceived in coun­tries like China, and now Korea has joined them in op­pos­ing the deal. The Korea Elec­tron­ics As­so­ci­a­tion (KEA) has sub­mit­ted two pe­ti­tions, one to the Fair Trade Com­mis­sion (FTC) and the other to the Federal Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Com­mis­sion (FCC). Their claim is that pre­vi­ously, Nokia has rarely ex­er­cised its patent rights be­cause of its cross-li­cens­ing with Sam­sung Elec­tron­ics, Ap­ple and the like. How­ever, the com­pany now can launch patent law­suits or de­mand an in­crease in roy­al­ties with­out any lim­i­ta­tions.
