They've got an API <http://www.evernote.com/about/developer/api/> so
it's certainly feasible. They do require SSL for authentication (via
their API & OAuth), so that may be a show stopper. There are ways you
could work around it, for example: setting up some sort of proxy
service/API between the Newton and Evernote's service and dishing out
your own auth keys to enter on the Newton prefs after logging into an
SSL site.

I don't use Evernote personally, but I'd love to see people working on
projects like this.
