Tech Wiz on pens and paper!

There have been some things over the years that I really liked and used extensively. One of those: devices” was and remains the iPad. I started using an iPad around 2011. Yes, I was a late adopter of both the Android and iOS tablets. Rare for me to be a late adopter, but I lived in the PC world and used the pen systems. A touch tablet didn’t seem critical to me. It was something that I found less than critical, so I didn’t get one for a long time.

Now, of course, the iPad is something I use every day. The evolution of need and the reality of function takes over and leaves you with a well new model for something. The addition for the iPad Pro’s of the Apple Pencil has also been interesting.  Windows Tablets have long had pencils (or the new Surface Pen) the Android (in particular Samsung) have long included pens. Apple has now for the past three years included their pencil, and again it is interesting.

I still, miss the reality of paper. I often use electric pens simply because that is what I grew up with (pen and paper). I like the Rocketbook tools as well. They let you write on paper, capture and convert to digital. You can also scan handwritten and typed pages using Aabby FineReader or Omnipage from Nuisance. They can scan and convert the text into digital.

Still, I love the feel of pen on paper or pen on a whiteboard. I have a couple of whiteboards in my basement just so I can, from time to time, think with a pen in hand!
