Board meetings, classes, workshops or lectures--how can you get all the detailed notes you need? Sure you can bring your laptop with you, but do you really want to type when someone's pitching an idea? Or type while your high school teacher is glaring at you for silence.
The old-fashioned way is to record a meeting or lecture with a mini tape recorder. Who uses those anymore today when we have compact Netbooks at our disposal? There's something smaller, portable (and definitely can fit inside a breadbox) available to you.

Free Wi-Fi with your latte has been a great marketing tool to encourage customers to hang out with their laptops at the local coffee shop--presumably downing multiple cups of coffee, espressos, chai lattes and like as they surf the 'net.
Unfortunately, many shops have seen an influx in customers camped out at their tables without the corresponding increase in food and beverage sales. For this reason, according to a recent story in the L.A. Times, many coffee shops are eliminating Wi-Fi in an effort to increase their profits.
A couple of weeks ago, Derek mentioned a Lifehacker story about what people buy online vs. in stores as a part of his weekly roundup of favorite finance news. It was quite an illuminating post since I would have guessed online shopping accounted for a much higher percentage of total retail sales.
As it turns out, the numbers are a bit misleading since the data represents 2007. Certainly in the last couple of years e-commerce has seen significant growth--in fact, in 2009 online sales were 6% of total retail vs. 3.2% in 2007. And according to Techcrunch, e-commerce grew by 11% in 2009 vs. 2.5% increase for retail sales overall.
Obviously, we're spending more and more time shopping online...
