I finally realized that Google Docs isn't the best note-taking app. It's too clunky for quickly jotting down notes about a project or interesting things I come across throughout the day.

So, I went to the Chrome Web Store and searched for a solution that was simple, easy to access, and had only the features I needed (syncing and sign-in were not important). Skeuomorphic designs were immediately disqualified.

Japanese tech giant has recently announced the SF-G UHS-II SD card claiming it will be the world’s fastest one. The maximum write speed for the SF-G series will reach 299 MB/s, while the read speed will hit 300 MB/s. For comparison, Amazon’s current bestselling SD card can only handle 80 MB/s read and write speeds. The SF-G cards are waterproof, temperature resistant, shock proof and X-ray proof. The cards optimized for professional photographers, DSLR and mirrorless camera users will be available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB variations.

Even though the Apple Pencil itself is a great piece of technology, its design leaves much to be desired — it’s made of cold and harsh plastic and the cap for the Lightning port is easy to lose. Pad & Quill is going to make your Apple Pencil easier to hold and harder to lose.

Uber is known for having a corporate culture that reveres aggressive attitudes and stepping on toes. CEO Travis Kalanick appears to also bring that same credo to his interactions with drivers.

In a dashboard video, published by Bloomberg on Tuesday, Kalanick is shown arguing with his driver over fares. The argument gets heated and ends with Kalanick telling the driver to stop blaming Uber for his problems.

Like CES, the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona also now attracts its fair share of car makers. Ford was an early adopter a few years ago, and now others are joining the fray, too. I sat down with Dieter May, BMW’s senior vice president of Digital Services and Business Models (in an i3, of course).
