Evernote, today, reported that they detected and blocked suspicious activity on their network. As a precaution, they say, they’ve implemented a password reset for all users.

Last month, I tried to squeeze thousands of displays at CES into just a couple days. That meant a lot of skimming past the same old stuff and stopping, occasionally, for the unique and noteworthy.
