Wouldnâ€™t it be nice if you could write (or draw) on a piece of paper with a pen and send that handwritten note straight to Google Docs or Evernote for digital archiving?
The digital pens made by Livescribe and Adapx look like regular ballpoint pens but are very smart. They capture everything you write in ink, including handwritten notes and sketches made on paper, and this data can be uploaded on to the computer via USB.
Some of us prefer carrying Tablet PCs inside meetings or the classroom because they help us capture handwritten notes directly on the computer. Secondly, writing with a pen in free-form anywhere on the screen is always convenient than typing a Word document.
