  • Evernote – best note taking application out there; one of my most used tools
  • OneNote – similar to Evernote (but not as good)
  • Office365 – Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneDrive – $7 to $10 / month
  • CrashPlan -$12.50/month to backup 10 home computers with unlimited cloud storage for backups
