Livescribe Collaborates With Microsoft to Bring Pen and Paper to OneNote

OAKLAND, Calif., March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Livescribe Inc. today announced a collaboration with Microsoft Corp. to integrate the Livescribe 3 smartpen with OneNote, Microsoft's popular program for capturing, storing and sharing all kinds of information. Now OneNote customers can use the Livescribe 3 to add handwritten notes, drawings and other information captured on paper into their OneNote notebooks.  This connection with OneNote is the latest step forward in Livescribe's push to make smartpens a ubiquitous and valuable tool.

"We know that OneNote customers love how the software captures all the information they need, from typed notes to photos to spreadsheets." said Gilles Bouchard, CEO of Livescribe. "Research shows handwriting is one of the fastest, most natural and least distracting ways to take notes, and now people can send the information from their Livescribe 3 pen directly to OneNote."

With a few taps, users can now quickly send their notes from the Livescribe+ app to OneNote, and then those notes can be synchronized across multiple devices using OneDrive (previously SkyDrive). This feature gives customers full control over what is sent to OneNote so that they can send full pages or just the single snippets of information they want to save in OneNote.  

"Microsoft OneNote is the best way to track what's important in life by capturing ideas, organizing notes and sharing that information with co-workers, fellow students, friends and family," said David Rasmussen, group program manager, OneNote. "Now people can use the Livescribe 3 to write their notes or diagrams, and use the power of OneNote to manage their daily lives via pen and paper or keyboard."

Starting today, Livescribe 3 customers with the latest version 1.1.0 update can configure Livescribe+ to quickly send their handwritten notes up to OneNote, where the text can be organized, edited or shared with just a few taps.

The Livescribe 3 smartpen is available from Livescribe.com, Amazon, Apple, Paradise Pen and select global retailers for $149.95. The Livescribe 3 Pro Edition is available for $199.95. Customers can utilize their Microsoft OneNote credentials to natively send their notes to OneNote.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again.
