The holidays are right around the corner and what better to way to show somebody you care than by getting them the smartest pen in town? The Pulse Smartpen from Livescribe is perfect for intrepid reporters or forgetful secretaries.

The Pulse Smartpen does a few nifty things. One is that it records while you write. If you need to reference what was being said when you were taking notes, simply tap the word you wrote and the audio will play back what was being said when you wrote that word!

The Pulse Smartpen also plugs into your computer so that you can save and share your handwritten notes online. The pen isn’t cheap and requires special notebook paper available from Livescribe, still it seems like a nifty gadget worth trying out at least once.
