I'm not much of an organizer but I do miss the simplicity of items like the day planners. You didn't have to worry about charging it or keeping it upgraded. It was what it was. A data collector with no bells and whistles.
I tried to tackle a calendar program on my mac a few days ago and had everything that I needed to mentioned in the right place with notes included and then it happened. I hit the wrong key and lost it all.
I truly believe that the simplier a device is the more useful it becomes. If something has too many buttons and flares to it, it takes away the true principle of its purpose and you grow weary of it. Being simple has a purpose...lets try to work it back into these new toys we're being flooded with.
