Here’s a low-tech tool for a high-tech world. We’ve all got our Treos and Blackberries, but sometimes you just need a pen and paper — including times when you’re not wearing professional clothes with lots of pockets.
Enter the PicoPad. I’ve been using the PicoPad for many months, and find it very handy. It’s a small pad of sticky notes, with an attached pen, that fits in a credit card slot in your wallet.
The pad is exactly the length and width of a credit card, and about three times as thick as one (when the pad is full). The pen looks pretty silly, but feels surprisingly comfortable in use. They’re only $3.99 each — try one.
