1) Circus Ponies Notebook software. Fifty bucks and it's the best thing ever! For me it's creativity at warp speed. My examples: two notebooks so far, a personal journal, just the way I've been doing it by hand for ages but with amazing special effects like photos, links, drag & drop, and other great formatting tools. And, my work diary with to-do's, quotes, notes, call records, ideas, sketches, photos and did I say ideas? Take this, you left-brained Windows people; it only runs on Mac OSX! And lest I forget to plug, I bought it online at Small Dog Electronics.
3) Oh yeah, the dog– is he pretty or what!
