I got a lot of Microsoft Word Documents form one of our professors at KTSI. But Evernote only supports text recognition inside PDFs. So I converted all Word Documents to PDF with the Mac OS X Automator.
How to convert Word Documents to PDF:
Open Automator under Mac OS X
Add a “Get Specified Finder Items” object
Select the Word Documents
Add another “Convert Format of Word Documents” object
Set the Format to ” Portable Document Format (PDF)”
Now click run and the Automator will convert all your Word Documents and you can find them in the same folder as the Word Documents
I think this is not really new but it looks like a lot of people don’t know about the new service of Microsoft called Docs.com. Docs.com is a kind of a online Office Suite connected to Facebook.
You can simple upload or create Microsoft Office files and share them with your Facebook friends. I think this is the first time Microsoft gets his Google Docs rival right. It’s very simple to use and you can login and share documents with something nearly every person has.
