Microsoft is stupid for not making an E-ink tool for OneNote

Residing in a globe of innovative innovation, I encounter numerous tricks or excessively complex points (like virtual reality) that simply don’t match my operations. Certainly, a few of that gets on me, yet typically sufficient, it’s part of firms’ hit-and-miss method to providing brand-new experiences.

Among one of the most outstanding little bits of technology that I lately acquired is Amazon.com’s Kindle Scribe with E-ink (or ‘digital ink’). It’s a $330 e-reader with a charitable 10.2-inch Paperwhite touchscreen, front light (with shade temperature level controls), and also, as the name recommends, the capacity to be made use of for notetaking many thanks to the pen. However, the cost leaps considerably if you include the Costs Pen (push button eraser) or increase from the entry-level 16GB of storage space.

Besides being the very best Kindle visitor I’ve had merely as a result of the display screen dimension, the ‘Scribe’ component has actually been a video game changer for my task. It’s the technology I would certainly have eliminated to have in graduate institution, and also any kind of trainee or white-collar worker would certainly love its abilities.

Sure, the inking capability is excessively simplified contrasted to the preferred (and also a lot more costly) reMarkable2. Still, given that I don’t attract and also all I wish to do is take standard notes, I locate the experience sufficient. And also, Amazon.com has actually assured software program improvements to include even more capability around notetaking and also some assistance for Microsoft Word.
