Early Adopters look away now!

Linked In

I recently saw a compelling documentary on Google^ and a key ‘take out’ for me was their constant thirst for innovation. I am quite certain that Larry & Sergei would have coniptions if they ever had the misfortune to encounter my cord entanglement catastrophy. (Above)

When I packed up tonight I looked down and was myself aghast at the scene of entwined hell beneath me. It looked like three Octopuses fighting over spaghetti! It certainly filled a hitherto so-called Early Adopter with pangs of guilt. Will I have to hand in my membership? Will I need to rescind my HTC 4g for an iPhone3? First rule of Early Adopters Club don’t talk about Early Adopters Club…oh and don’t have sixteen tons of cabling on your desk!

Hmmm perhaps I can acquire a Livescribe pen and rejoin the club! A pen so advanced that it makes paper very 2010 (search Livescribe for my related post)

^ OK so reasonably interesting. Filled in an hour or so on a flight at least

Give Bic the Flic. This pen is smarter than my next door neighbour and she’s a journalist so…


It listens, it remembers things. Should men be worried?!

Behold Livescribe. The saviour of a time poor populace. Now we needn’t have to irritatingly listen to people nor arduously transfer jotted scribbles from note pads into documents ourselves. No friends that is so very 2010. Tisk & piff to you late adopters.

This pen actually listens and remembers. Should we collectively as males be worried? Write, scribble, bullet point or interview it’s all captured for you to transfer to your desktop, Mac, iPad or smartphone. Rumour has it that this was what Osama was working on for the last couple of years.

This product is fascinating and alarming in equal measure. Can you picture the University lecture with a swarm of students saluting their lecturer with their pens held aloft. The efficient tutorial graph-paper doodler is also now poised to become pretty wealthy. Imagine a decent doodle of a poodle – that might make someone oodles.
