  • Jotting Down Notes

    January 30th, 2012
    phone  [html]
    Since getting my phone, one of the big things I like is that I can quickly take down notes. If I spent $8 on contra dance admission, I used to have to remember until I got home and could add it to the expenses spreadsheet. If I got a good idea walking to work, I would hope it was still in my head when I got there. I considered at times carrying around a notepad for this, but it never seemed worth it.

    A smartphone is many devices in one, each of which (notepad, phone, camera, gps, flashlight, pager, ...) I wasn't interested in enough on its own to bother with carrying around.
