COMMENT FROM LAST WEEK'S SHOW

"On the topic of bookmarking Google+ posts into circles, i also learned of a neat trick to book mark posts to Evernote. Just grab the Evernote email created specially for your account which is used to email stuff to your Evernote account and create a Circle with just this email (I call mine Evernote, obviously) and when you see a post you like you simply share it to that circle and voila it sends it to your Evernote account. Easy as pie.

Hope you like this nifty trick too. Thanks.

Chuck."

"Hi Sarah and Amber.

I wonder if you could explain a little about Pinterest since I don't have a clue as to what it does. I keep hearing about it so it seems to be the hot new thing and one person made it sound like some kind of shopping site. I looked a the site though and didn't see anything for sale, just a lot of odd photos and some comments underneath each one. Maybe it's something only women can appreciate but I don't see the point of it at all. Also, I suspect most of the photos were copied from somewhere else so won't they get in trouble for copyright violations and sued out of existence? Thanks. - steve"
