Sometimes you just don’t want to haul your laptop to another meeting, but you do want to incorporate notes from that meeting into all of your other notes related to the project. The Livescribe Echo smartpen has you covered. Grab the pen and a pad of its special paper, and it will record your writing along with the audio as the meeting progresses. Later, you can play back the recorded audio to match your notes in an animated PDF. The pen also has shortcuts for uploading your notes to Google Docs, Facebook, and Evernote, and you can send them via email or a mobile text message, too. The pen costs $99 for the 2GB model, $150 for 4GB, and $200 for 8GB.
