Changes to the Livescribe smartpen Range

I’ve been advised by Livescribe that effective immediately the product range of smartpens will be reduced to two core SKU’s – the 2GB Echo smartpen, and the Livescribe 3 Black Edition. Both these smartpens are priced at AUD 249. The premium SKU’s that existed in the Echo and LS3 range – namely the 8GB Echo, LS3 Pro, and LS3 Moleskine are officially retired with little or no stock available (Officeworks may have some units on hand but possibly only via online). No further changes are expected to the product range for the foreseeable future. Both the 2GB Echo and LS3

How Livescribe 3 Helps The Executive Coach

Continuing our series of posts about how the Livescribe 3 Smartpen helps specific users I’m looking at how the new Smartpen can help the executive coach/leadership mentor deliver more interactive, outcome driven engagement with their clients. The role of the executive coach/leadership mentor is to help develop better leaders – not by solving problems for them but by helping them to make better decisions. Australia’s leading executive mentor group is The Executive Connection, an organisation that I’ve been a member of and resource speaker, for quite a few years.

A Better Way To Take Notes in Meetings

For many of us in business taking notes is natural, but how do we take what was written and: Quickly augment our writing with additional information on what was said in the meeting Share our notes to colleagues or

Livescribe Echo vs Pulse Smartpens – Comparing the two

Since the Livescribe Echo was introduced last month we’ve had a lot of questions about the differences between the two pens. Should I stay with the Pulse, upgrade to an Echo, which is the better model? In this post I’m going to discuss some of the core differences between the existing Pulse Smartpens and the new Echo range. Smartpen Product Line Changes By now you may have noticed changes to the product line up.
