Keep lets users access, edit, and create new notes online. The new Chrome version presents users the advantage of being able to use all of Keep’s service even when off line. This includes the featured voice commands and automatic transcription of voice memos. Keep also features a search function for notes with options to delete or archive it. In addition, Keep allows users to attach photos to tasks.
Though some are comparing the service to rival Evernote, its competing service is reportedly much more powerful. Google describes it as an app that lets users “save ideas and organize to-dos the moment they happen by creating notes, lists, photos and voice recordings.” The Chrome app accomplishes this by being independent from the Chrome browser itself.
Keep is a standalone app completely separate from a user’s Google Chrome Browser. In contrast to being an extension, Keep continues to run even when Chrome is turned off. When a user goes back online, the app syncs everything together.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home.

The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
