LiveScribe have announced their new Sky product, which will only work with Evernote. There will be no desktop application, and no way to view your data except by using Evernote. No PDF export. No local storage on your private machine or network. No control over your data. That's the Evernote business model, and LivesScribe have accepted it. IMO, this is a real loss of value for consumers.

The software is useful. But, for me, there is a glaring omission.

There is no systematic way to code or add meta data to notebook entries (by page or group of related pages). The data entries, when stored online, are in effect a database after all.

But, as I collect hundreds of pages of notes, I cannot systematically look for al notes on a particular topic, date, location, etc; or meetings related to a particular client.

One must rely entirely on the handwriting recognition of what was written in the note (in the notepad) at the time of note-taking. Thus I stopped using the product.

It's great to be able to input my handwritten notes into the computer. Paper becomes a mere data entry medium, but not necessarily the storage medium. That's good in principle.

But if I cannot systematically retrieve archived notes, from hundreds of entries, the value of the approach is lot entirely.

So many products emphasize the ease of getting data into the computer. Fine. But, for me, the real value lies with whether I can readily get the data out in a cogent and meaningful form.

That's not the case with Livescribe, at least for me.
