Although I'm an early adopter of technology I prefer taking handwritten notes as it helps me 1) record only the salient subject matter, 2) better retain and embed the information in my mind, and 3) fuel my creative thinking and process faster. The downside is the lack of efficient organization and categorization of all information for future use. Until now, when I discovered these new smart notebooks from hamelin that allow me to do both, handwrite my notes, then using the free Scribzee app (downloaded to my . phone) I take a photo of the note pages and upload them to the cloud where I can organize, sort, rearrange, and categorize for future reference and use. All the benefits from handwriting retention to efficient organization.
More bonuses, Optik bright white paper that doesn't bleed through enabling writing on both sides, so twice the value, and the thickest covers with a rugged binding that endures all kinds of wear and tear, no tearing or falling apart like most notebooks. Bright colors are fun too, so both form and function!
