Livescribe Store - Buy Direct. I am a month into the SmartPen experiment, and this fat pen has become a part of my everyday routine. I keep a full sized daily journal to record the day, and take notes, which I transfer to the computer every morning while keeping the pen charged. I have recorded 3 hours long seminars, and taken notes for a month, and have only used 1 Gigabyte of the pen's 8 Gigabyte storage. I carry a leather bound journal in my briefcase for note taking on the go; and, now that I have a digital record, I never need to worry about losing written notes. This is perhaps the best, and most functional, $169 I have spent on the office in a long time. If you write all day, and want a digital record of it, you need one of these. If you carry a journal with you to jot down stuff, you need one of these. I have also found that I make a more detailed record of the day's events, now that I know I will have it for posterity.
