As America celebrates its birth, we think of the hardships suffered by the signers of the Declaration of Independence. And fireworks and hot dogs. Maybe not in that order. Imagine how much easier it would've been if they'd ditched the quill and ink and used the Lightscribe Pulse Smartpen ($200, 2GB) which can digitally transfer thousands of pages of handwritten notes, record hundreds of hours of audio, and even translate foreign words (like liberté). Now imagine the Declaration of Independence on Livescribe microdot paper, the specialized paper that's used with the pen. Imagine....hmm, maybe we should stop now.
