Discussion on: How To Take Notes on Everything

In addition to multiple note-taking apps on iOS and Android devices, iBooks and Kindle (and some other readers to a limited extent) enable you to export your notes to a file for import into your Exocortex. It never occurred to me to name my notebooks in Evernote or Notion (In the process of switching from a 10-year premium subscription!) so long as I have things organized and tagged.

The remarkable tablet is not for everyone. The eInk approach to notebooks is cool but it doesn't do anything that I can't already do except prevent me from peeking outside my activity. Since peeking is a matter of self-discipline on the learning path, I haven't found this to be an issue that interrupts my flow too much.

Thanks for the article!

Ah I didn't know about the note-exporting function for iBooks! Will need to check that out myself, thanks for mentioning it here.

You're right about the remarkable not being for everyone, in addition to the price tag it is more specially suited for those who are just really big fans of reading. Of course that's also me so I'm quite biased haha.
