Icon Notepad Highlights the Duality of Note Taking
November 29th, 2010
I don’t write anything down if I can get around it. I have a budget I follow each month to keep me from blowing all my money on gadgets and car parts. I could write it down old school style, but I use Excel so it can do the calculations for me. If I need to go to the grocery store, I have my wife text the list to me. I can’t read my own handwriting, so it’s all digital for me.
If you like to use digital stuff to take notes and write things as well, but occasionally have to hand write things out you will like the Icon notebook from Barcelona Spain’s BrigadaCreativa. This thing is sort of a symbol of the duality of writing today. It’s an old school paper notepad, but it looks like a digital icon you would find on a computer.
The notepad can be had in a three pack for about $24 (USD) or in a single for about $10. The pads have 80-pages inside and are DIN A5 size pages measuring 148mm x 210mm. The only downside if you need normal paper is that the folded over corner apparently means the pages are flat on one corner as well.
