The Livescribe blog carried an interesting story from the US of how a US Army public affairs specialist uses her smartpen.
I work as a public affairs specialist for the military, a demanding position where deadlines are critical. Through this job, I have the chance to tell soldiers’ stories to the public and it’s really something I love. My Livescribe smartpen, Excalibur cuts my writing time in half. You heard me right, the smartpen cuts my time in half! Priceless.
The ability to capture audio and notes – yet be more involved in a conversation is a real benefit of using the Livescribe pen – we hear this feedback from similar users here in Australia and New Zealand quite regularly.
If you need to take notes, conduct interviews, or be involved in conversations then the Livescribe smartpen can really help you.
One idea we are currently considering is providing smartpen’s to some students around the region who are studying journalism and communications. Let me know if you’d like more information.
As a final point we’re launching a new 2GB Echo Smartpen special which will run between now and Dec 31, 2011. For the standard price of $149 we’re going to include MyScript AND a 3-subject notebook for free. This is an additional $40 of value included at no extra cost. Simply purchase the standard 2GB Echo to take advantage of this offer.
