Rendered nearly obsolete in recent years by palmtops and laptops, the yellow legal pad has been given a new lease on life. The CrossPad by Cross Pen Computing Group is a portable digital notepad that uses a special Cross ink pen equipped with a tiny radio frequency transmitter that turns every scribble you make on the paper pad into digital notes. Up to 50 pages of notes can be downloaded into a PC and converted into text with IBM's Ink Manager software (included with the pad). Ink Manager lets you search your notes on the PC by keyword, cut and paste CrossPad-generated text into almost any Windows 95 application, and e-mail or print both handwritten and text notes. Using the CrossPad with your PC requires Windows 95, an open COM port and a CD-ROM drive.
