Microsoft OneNoteHave you heard about Microsoft OneNote?

If not, get ready to get organized! Microsoft OneNote is the electronic version of a three-ring binder (or a Day Planner – the one with all the all the tabs and pages).  It mimics the concept quite well:  You create a notebook on any topic you wish, create tabs to separate various types info, and then add pages to the tabs, just as you would in physical paper.  You can have more than one notebook, and as many ‘tabs' as you need in each of them.  They even LOOK like tabs and pages.

In today’s market, subscription based software is becoming more and more popular for software developers. Many prefer to control the use of their software products through a subscription model rather than the traditional outright purchase of the software.
