I've been using this more and more. I start a lot of projects by doing some internet research. Google Notebooks allows me to save interesting web findings on Google's servers and access them anywhere I have internet access.
I create a separate Google notebook for each area of interest. If I find something of interest on the web, I select the relevant text, right click, click on Note This (Google Notebook) and I have everything saved with a link and searchable.
It's all rather utilitarian without bells and whistles. But it serves a need that I have.
For example, I will buy, one of these days, a new smart phone. Each time I found out something of interest, I save the text and link to my Smartphone Google Notebook.
I just set a new notebook up today because I want to create oral histories (actually, I'll probably make them video histories) from some of my older relatives. I found a number of websites with lists of questions to ask. I saved all these lists to a notebook and added as an NA for my Oral Histories Completed project "Organize questions from Google Notebook."
As they say on the streets of New York, "Check it out!"
