Those of us who have spent much time taking notes by hand may have, in fact, the upper hand! Perhaps the skills gained in writing have assisted note-taking generally. It is more of a challenge for younger learners.

More on the Bose SoundTouch that others have tried to do, it's good to see that Bose made a stab at this, it is more likely going to be successful in getting adoption / acceptance of the wireless music throughout the home than others due to the fact that it's married to an actual product that people already like.....One of the strategies for successful adoption a new tech (when attempting to move up the S-curve of adoption) is to marry it with another technology that is already being accepted by the marketplace.
