HOW IT WORKS
We will lead you to pick the best products for your needs. Here is why.

HAND-SELECTED CRITERIA
For every category, such as streaming music, the TechPolish team thought long and hard about what mattered to us and our friends in choosing a service. Ultimately these were criteria that could not be determined by a machine, but also would not vary much even if you asked 100 professional review experts.

COMPREHENSIVE DATA
So for every category the team picked 5 things that mattered, like how good the song selection was and the quality of sound that each service offered for streaming music. Then we scoured the web for what the company published, what consumers were saying, and what we had experienced personally.

SIMPLE RANKINGS BASED ON PRECISE NUMBERS
For every criteria, we then scored each service from 1-100, which is converted to the 1-5 star ranking in each criteria. User rank services as well. We balance what everyone says and make recommendations accordingly.

TRUST IN TECHPOLISH
Thorough research. Real users. Insightful guidance.


WE LOOK IT UP

All of our data come from months of research. We update our info daily.


WE USE EVERY SERVICE

No FAQ page can answer every question. We actually sign up, test, poke, prod, drop, knock over, lift up, look under, jump atop, and...use these products.


WE THINK BEFORE WE SPEAK
Even with information in hand and experience in mind, we consider real factors like - how long has this service been around, does the site have bugs that might suggest a broader instability, and more. Then, we write. As humans, not web scrapers.

USERS ARE TALKING

Our suggestions are based off of a balance of TechPolish's ratings and the aggregate reviews from our users. Trust us. Trust the community.

As long as you don't mind ads, full selection is free. It does have some discovery tools, but is mostly for people who know what they want to listen to. Very similar to Grooveshark, except Spotify has no web interface.When I first started using Spotify I loved it. But I realized I'm more about finding new artists than listening to stuff I already know I like. So I went back to mostly using Hype Machine and Pandora. Like Grooveshark, Spotify is great for parties, where you want to control the playlist.

Great for getting all the music you want. Since the discovery tools are just okay, you'll want to use it when you know what you want to listen to. Similar concept to Spotify, but is primarily web-based. I prefer this, but others may favor a desktop client. There are (or at least were ) desktop versions, but they have not caught on with most people. As I said with the Spotify review, Grooveshark is great for parties. Both of them are the same in my book.

I love OneNote. It came bundled with Office 2010 for me, so if you don't use - or want to buy - Office, then ignore this. However, for actual notetaking, I favor it to all others. It is very easy to use, and Office users will have no trouble learning how to use it. It's not the best for mobile integration, but I primarily used it on my laptop for class notes, mind mapping, and other purposes where stability and usability were most important.

Evernote is my go-to app for mobile notes. I use it for writing down ideas when I'm on the go. I can easily pull up the desktop or web interface at home, and revise or add on to my notes. Some of the advanced functions are not as easy to use or learn as with OneNote. I've had a few hiccups with syncing, which caused me to dock some points, but their help staff was very friendly and quick to reply. However, as with all cloud based apps, the ramifications of a bad sync or data failure can be huge. So, while I still highly recommend Evernote, I would also recommend backing up to your email, Dropbox/Box.net/etc, or to physical media (hdd, cd/dvd, usb drive) to ensure you never lose anything.
