If you're out in the field and you want to jot down pure information: either writing something to yourself or transcribing (like taking notes in class or a meeting) - this tools doesn't solve that any better than a text editor or word processor. It's great for copy/paste jobs but it doesn't help you get information down fast or accurately... I finally found something that actually helped me transcribe notes online. If you want a pure text note taking solution that is absurdly quick, barebones, and focuses on data entry check out www.ayenotes.com for taking notes online. AyeNotes was wired for text only notes - sort of the use you describe in your article. Its key feature is that it provides clips for frequently used strings. These can be templates you type, terms you use (action items, research, etc.), or it can be programmer-esque things like HTML and Markdown. The site also autosaves work and provides keystroke commands. If you have the site remember your login, everytime you go to www.ayenotes.com to take notes online you are dropped right into the new note screen. To get your data out, you can email or download the note in multimarkdown format. The issue with Evernote is that it is really just a high end clipping solution.
