I love techy gadgets and it's been a while since I've had one that makes my heart pitter-patter. Over a year ago, I saw a video of a "smart pen" that peeked my interest. Just last week, while I was at the Mortgage Girlfriend Mastermind event, I sat next to a mortgage originator who was using her Pulse smart pen to record the audio from the event while she was taking her notes.
The beauty of this "smart pen" is that when she clicks back on her notes, what ever was being recorded at that time will be replayed. Our high school kids are drooling over this seeing the potential this can be for college.
Your notes are uploaded to a desk top application where you can search specific terms and you can even publish a note as a "live scribe"to be viewable on the internet, shared on apps like Facebook and Twitter or via email.
I'm using this pen to take notes while I'm talking to clients (obviously these notes are not published on the livescribe site) or planning social media events. It helps me to be more organized so I can easily search a clients last name using the desktop application to quickly refer to my notes instead of flipping through a paper note book.
The notebooks come in spiral bound college ruled and they also have smaller notepads available (I carry one in my purse).
You must see it to believe it. I found my pen at the Target in Westwood Village (betweenWest Seattle and Burien).
