The Livescribe Pulse Smartpen and Evernote

Do you need a Smartpen?  I decided it was time to give the Livescribe Smartpen a whirl and check out the integration with Evernote.  I have to say that I am very impressed with the Pulse model that I'm using.  It records anything I write in a Livescribe notebook and once I dock the pen, it sends my handwriting right to evernote.  I could go on for days about the utility of this pen and how well it works with Evernote. If you want the ability to carry around a notebook and still use Evernote to remember everything you write, don't delay - get yourself a Smartpen today!

Trentacostes heading to Ohio University

Sorry for the delay in recent posting.  I recently accepted the position of Executive Director of Residential Housing at Ohio University and will be transitioning my family in the next few months. I'ts bittersweet as I've had an amazing 8 years at NKU and will miss many of the great friends and colleagues I've made. 

However - no worries for those of you following my blog at NKU - I intend to continue to update this blog during my tenure at Ohio University.  I continue to believe in both Evernote and the iPad as amazing productivity tools.  This blog will continue to reflect tips and ideas I have for leveraging both.  Thank you for continuing to follow the blog.

Sorry for the delay in new posts - life has continued to be hectic.  A future post will explain why there's a been a dely in new ideas and posts

In the meantime, here's a great tip for those of you using Evernote who also have Siri (Iphone 4s).  Those that love Siri know that she has some limitations but here's one way around the evernote limitation.
