Well, I used to use 3 different PDAs, but never really used them that much. Then I decided to kick it old school with a pad of paper. I started to use cheapo notebooks that are 3 for $1. It was amazing how much I used the notebook. Sometimes the “Handwriting recognition” on the pad of paper can be a real problem (bad pda joke), but I had the same problem with the pda. Then I found this blog on tools and they mentioned the Moleskine notebook. I thought it was a total rip off at Barnes & Noble for $10. But it really is a great notebook. I like the band to hold it together, the book mark thing, and the file at the end of the book. I carry the book in my back pocket all the time and it holds up very well. If you use a notebook you should check it out.
