I bought the Handstory Suite for my NX and I am pretty happy with it. They have clips that are hosted on the Handstory server, and you can also make custom clips that your desktop goes out and grabs from your specified urls. I grabbed Handstory because it works so well with the MS. It will also read e-books and manage your memos, but I use it exclusively for web clippings. One thing I REALLY like is that Handstory downloads all of your clips on it's own, not while you are hotsyncing. Avantgo always slowed my hotsyncs down soo much, I couldn't just do a qiuck hotsync and leave, I had to wait for it to update megs of clippings. With Handstory, it clips on it's own, so it is much faster for me. Handstory also lets you have unlimited clippings, and unlimited custom clips, because it is not server based like Avantgo. With Avantgo, unless you want t spend extra money, you are limited to 2meg.
Unfortunately, they don't put out a demo of the suite. There is a free version that has limited features, and most of these missing features were the features I needed on my NX. I made a leap of faith and went ahead and bought the suite package, and I am pretty happy with it.
My major problem right now is that most of my custom clips hang whlie I'm clipping them form my desktop... but this seems to be a problem with the servers the websites are on, and not a problem with Handstory.
