      No comment on this product. It's way too expensive for me. I traded some emails with the co-founders a while ago, they seem like great guys.

      I love my AlphaSmart NEO. Got it on eBay for $20, shipped to a small library in rural Michigan where I was summer '19. I still use it and enjoy it, for all kinds of writing.

      The AlphaSmart is just writing in the same way that Readup is just reading. That's what you're there to do, and what you want to be 100% focused on doing. The technology (both the hardware and the software) should disappear.

      Interesting product read. Love the name.

      My housemates Gifted a Really Exciting Gift - unexpected, very creative, and so minimalistically modern, tech - Basically the Very Best Kind of Gift:

      RocketBook: The endlessly reusable intelligent notebook with a Rainbow of FriXion Pens.

      Saving my official dive in with this Gift for the new year. Excited and Grateful!
