A significant step up from a trusty old Bic, the Livescribe Echo smartpen takes note taking to a whole new level by allowing you to sync audio to your scribbles and send them all over the web in just a few simple steps.

Just when you think you’ve seen every kind of USB memory stick in the world, another one comes along. This one dispenses post-it notes. Very handy, if you use post-it notes, which unfortunately I don’t.
It’s got two gigabytes of memory built in, with an unspecified number of post-it notes. Not sure how easy they’d be to ‘refill’ either, though I suppose you could just chop a normal pad into strips and stick the bottom one on with glue. Of course it suffers from the same problem as every other USB stick – if you knock it by accident, then you’ve got a very good chance of damaging the port or the stick.
