The perfect gift for this Holiday season? A smart notebook!

The thin line between paper notes and digital notes just got thinner with a new smart notebook that syncs handwritten notes with productivity service Evernote.
Evernote partnered with Moleskine to create the notebook, which uploads handwritten notes to Evernote so the data can be viewed across devices.
The notebook also comes with smart sticker, which lets Evernote recognize and instantly associates a tag with the note.
What do you think about it? It seems you may have found the perfect gift for holiday season!
