Gadget Wednesdays: Mobile Notetaker

Here’s a scenario: you need to take down some important notes, but you don’t have a computer around. Or, you know, you’re just more comfortable with a pen and a pad of paper. Isn’t it tiresome to have to type the entire thing all over again just to get down digitally? Not if you have the Mobile NoteTaker.

Gadget Wednesdays: Who wants a USB Memory Watch?

I do!  In this week’s Gadget Wednesdays, we’re featuring the USB Memory Match. It’s very sleek and stealthy. How very 007. Here are the specs:

  • Standard USB interface and USB extension cord included
  • USB 2.0 (read 4MB/s and write 3MB/s)
  • Sleek design, very lightweight (this is not a bulky watch)
  • Plug and play, easy operation (appears as a USB mass storage device)
  • LED indicator light shows device connectivity and data transfer
  • Operating Systems: Win 98, ME, 2000, XP, Linux 2.4 or higher, Mac OS 8.6 or higher
  • Shock proof and Anti-static
  • Water resistant to 20 meters (let USB connector dry before using)
  • Japanese movement with 3-year battery life
  • Memory size: 2GB
  • Weight: 1.5 oz (43 grams)
  • Dimensions: 1.5″ width x .375″ thick (watch face)

The retail price is less than $40.00, but you can get it for free if you win this gadget contest from Easy Wordpress.

Interestingly enough, they’re also giving away the Sonic Boom Alarm Clock with Bed Shaker, which I included in the post about Productivity Gifts for the Holiday Season (under $50).
