Cool idea but you apparently cant save anything off of it,its pretty much useless for anything but idle doodling and maybe small lists. I think I'll wait for the next version to come out.

so since you see it as of little use and it is not being offered at a discount, why post it as a deal? Moreover, while this item is at this point rarely discounted, you can sometimes pick it up elsewhere at a very slight discount.

BTW, it is not useless....it is excellent for some purposes. It will appeal most to people with a creative mind as to real world applications.

This thing here? It'd be perfect, if it had a way to save what I was drawing. Like, even just a flash card reader. I'd love to have a small "sketchpad" that I could just keep using without having to worry about wasting paper...

Neat. Time to upgrade from my etch-a-sketch.

I'm getting one, albeit at my local Brookstone's, rather than thru this non-deal. The item retails at $35, so why call this a 'deal'?

But the item is cool, and will be invaluable in my profession as an air traffic controller. In the course of performing my duties, I require several pieces of scratch paper daily. When a piece gets filled with callsigns, approach types/departures to whichever runways, NOTAMS, vehicle movements, et cetera, I simply rip off the page and 'round file it'. No long term memory required for this purpose, although I can think of several additional uses, should the device ever become available with save and selective erase features, at a reasonable price point.

With this device as currently configured, I will just push a button to get a new 'sheet' of paper, and never again worry about having to dig up a new scratch pad out of the 'stationery midden' in the middle of a work session when the old one fades to cardboard. 20 button pushes per day = 6 years.

@smartheart: I posted it, and I see it as useful, please read carefully before being insulting

@rond67215: This is listed at ThinkGeek at a higher price without free shipping, that makes it a deal. Brookstone also offers it at $35, but again without free shipping. If you can find a better deal online feel free to post it, but otherwise don't call something a 'non-deal', it went popular after all. Frankly, anything that saves me from having to go into the Mall is a deal for me.

@tygerdave: Thanks for the deal! These will be invaluable at my house. We need something like this to leave notes for each other (if dogs and cat have been fed, if plants need to be watered, etc.) The whiteboard we used to have was obnoxious, never looking clean, always losing the markers.

@tygerdave:

It is a non-deal. It is however a very cool device, and you brought it to light, so kudos, dude.

I got one this morning (without having to wait for 'special' free ground shipping) at local Brookstone for $35, and will be using it at work today.

Thank you most sincerely for uncovering this very useful device for all of us, albeit at a distinctly non-special price. Lighten up, bro...

@rond67215: :-p How's the responsiveness on that thing?

vote-for2vote-against

I forgot to mention before, Thinkgeek has it for $35.00 plus shipping. BUT, with the $10.00 off $30.00 code (SDCC), its cheaper than this deal.

@tygerdave

hi, it's me, a.k.a. rond67215 (don't have password for that account at this remote location)...

It is very responsive. In use at work, it's nearly a perfect 1-for-1 replacement for our scratch pads. I write small, and the lettering is only slightly larger than normal fine point Pilot 07 G2 gel pen. If the pad was 1 inch wider it would be perfect; but it is more than acceptable for my work use. The ATM is considering buying 3 of them for the entire facility, and saving $$$ per year on scratch pads. It's a truly nifty little device, and I'll also be using it for shopping lists. Easy to carry, more than durable enough. Haven't played Frisbee with it (yet), though...
