    Yeah I have seen it, never decided to use it. Read Later Fast for me, and then, only using that as temporary sort of bookmarking facility, so there is really not much sensitive info stored. :D

    The "EULA" sucks of course, no doubt about it.

    Well, to be fair, anyone that needs or wants EverNote (and it's popular, actually), are well aware that their data is going to be collected. It's not like the company is secretly doing it, they flat out tell you they are. If a company is honest about what it does, and people decide to use them, then the company can't be blamed. Most people by now know Facebook is a dangerous place, and that Zuckerberg and Googles' Schmidt might as well be brothers when it comes to privacy. But, Facebook is still wildly popular and growing. Eventually some of the shame/blame must be shifted onto the shoulders of the users. After all, they are the reason these companies exist.
