Do you get creeped out by the fact that Google reads your emails in order to serve you ads (even though every time you search any web-based email it’s doing the exact same thing)? Then you should leave now, because the Mod Notebook is a service that scans your filled-up paper notebook and sends you back the digital version.
What’s more, the digital version is cloud-based and accessed through the browser. If you thought pen and paper was good enough to defeat the NSA’s Stasi-level interest in your thoughts, then move along. Still here? Let’s take a look at this awesome notebook!
First up is the size – it’s the exact same size as the iPad Mini. The covers lay flat when the book is open, and the 120gsm paper should be thick enough to keep your ink on the side of the paper you put it on.
Once you’ve filled the book, you take the pre-paid mailing envelope from the rear pocket and send it off. Within five days, the entire book will be available in the Mod web app, and you can also have it sync with Evernote, Dropbox or OneNote. I’d choose Evernote to make the entire handwritten text of your notebook searchable.
How much? $25, including return shipping and scanning. Books come in gray right now, and with a choice of lined, blank or dot-grid paper. Just don’t write down any passwords.
