One of the nice things about Evernote is the ability to search through images and PDF documents. Anything you put in Evernote automatically can be searchable.
When a note is sent to Evernote (via synchronization), any Resources included in the note that match the MIME types for PNG, JPG or GIF are sent to a different set of servers whose sole job is performing Optical Character Recognition (OCR) on the supplied image and report back with whatever it finds. These results are added to the note in the form of a hidden--that is, not visible when viewing the note--metadata attribute called recoIndex. The full recoIndex node is visible when a note is exported as an ENEX file.
This is a service that available to everyone - you don't need to be a Premium customer to get your Images/Documents searchable. However, there is a waiting queue and premium subscribers do get a "fast pass" to get their documents processed first.
This is a good reason to get your important documents in Evernote. That way you can easily find the documents when you're looking for something.
I like using the Scannable App and take pictures of restaurant receipts. This way I don't have to clutter my wallet with my personal copy. Unless you're expensing the meal, there's really no reason to have to save a restaurant receipt.
With Evernote and Scannable, those receipts are automatically OCR. Scannable makes the receipt white which makes the OCR process more reliable. This makes it easy to find when the last time I visited the restaurant and what I had to order. I can simply search for the restaurant name - or the location.

In QA testing, Negative Tests are used to make sure the application behaves when actions are performed outside of expectations.
An example would be to enter Unicode characters in a phone field. Sure you may test for alphanumeric values - but what if someone accidentally typed in a Unicode value?
Negative Tests are a good way to see how solid the code is written. Did the developer think of all the edge cases? An example did the Developer account for not allowing a single space in a required field (users do this so they don't have to put in information - such as phone numbers.)
In your Test Case Repository, you should have a lot more Positive Test Cases than Negative test cases. You should be testing more than a positive outcome will happen than negative ones.
When testing a new product, you should have more Negative Test Cases than Positive ones. QA should be making sure that there are no bad surprises when the product is launched.
You won't account for all the scenarios but can learn a lot from past projects and the way that certain developers write the code.
Most companies have done a very poor job of identifying and documenting negative test scenarios.
A good source of Negative testing data is the Bug Magnet browser extension.

LaunchBar is a very powerful tool that puts instant access to all sorts of actions at your fingertips. You can open applications faster, get to documents, set reminders and so much more.
There are a lot of very useful LaunchBar built-in actions - 152 of them to be exact. They expand the capabilities of LaunchBar to be way more useful than the standard Spotlight search.
Here are three example actions that are very useful. Granted it takes some time to get used to the new process, but you will see how it can improve your computer productivity time.
The typical method to search using Google requires opening up a browser, typing a search term and hitting return. That's great if you're already working with the browser open, but if you're doing a paper it's a lot of extra steps.
Using LaunchBar, you can quickly get things moving by passing the search parameters to the browser. After doing this a few times, you'll see how using LaunchBar method is so much easier than a typical method.
Whenever I have a list that I need to join, I usually end up opening up BBEdit and then pasting the text and then do a simple search and replace. After the search, I have to remove the last comma in the list. No so fun, and very time-consuming.
Using this trick in LaunchBar, I am able to work much quicker. Now I can quickly sort the list. There are other list tools in LaunchBar, but this is one that I use the most.
Tiny URL is a great service to make URLs really shore, especially when the URL has a lot of parameters. This is useful when you want to post something in Slack or in a Jira. There's no need to have a huge paper trail link
The nice thing about Tiny URL is that it never expires, so you can keep using it for a long time.
You can make the process go even quicker by using custom abbreviations. The actions will appear quicker with abbreviations that you are more familiar with.
To make Searching Google faster, change the Google Abbreviation to search:

Did you know that you can share Evernote?s Notes in iMessage? If you have Evernote installed on your iOS device, you can share notes in iMessage.
On the bottom of the iMessage window is an Application icon, when you click on it you have access to various applications to interact with whomever your messaging.
When you select the Evernote icon, you have access to all your Evernote files. You can send any file to the person that your messaging.
You can also add an optional comment before sending - why they should open the document.
This isn?t something new, it?s been in Evernote since September 2016 - when iOS 10 came out.
You have to be online to use Evernote. If you don?t see any notes when you go to the note section, you may have turned off cellular data for Evernote.
You can?t share entire notebooks, just one note at a time.
Each Note that you send is a public note Url, so it doesn?t matter if they are using iOS, Android Bada or Palm OS.

Happy Path defines the success of every QA test - the user should be able to run through the functionality without having to encounter any errors.
The QA Project lead should start out building out a test plan that defines the happy path. While the path may seem obvious - it does help identify risk area.
Some QA Experts will say that there?s only one Happy Path in a project. I?ll argue that many paths may exist, for example in eCommerce you may have a Happy Path for existing customers and one for new customer.
A good real-world example of a happy path is going to the grocery store and getting everything on your shopping list.
Can you think of ways that a Happy Path would not be accomplished?
Some things that could cause an unsuccessful Happy Path
Figuring out all the possibilities that could prevent someone from having a Happy Path is a good way to build test cases.
When starting out testing a new product, QA brainstorm ways that could prevent users from successfully completing their tasks.
On release day, all new products should have a successful Happy Path.
