Livescribe Echo (4GB) Review
The good: The Livescribe Echo is a ballpoint pen and voice recorder combination that preserves digital copies of your notes and recordings, which can be replayed, saved to your computer, and shared with others.
The bad: It's not cheap; pens and caps tend to get lost; digitizing notes requires special paper; ink cartridges are smaller than standard.
The bottom line: For students and professionals who ritually take, review, and share handwritten notes, the Echo smartpen does what all great technology should do: it makes life easier.
