It seems to me like evernote is something that no one would ever need. Why not just take your notes on the apple/android built in notes thing?
Well, it can also clip whole articles, sort of like Instapaper or Readability. There's an extension for Chrome / Firefox that renders any page in "Article View," and then you can clip it to your Evernote count in case the website disappears pretty later. It's pretty handy.
