Moleskine Smart Writing Set

Moleskine $179

Review date: 11/02/2020

Instantly digitized notes. Sounds like a dream for every person who still loves to take notes with pen and paper but also lives in the year 2020 and beyond. With this smart pen and paper set, you write notes on the paper and BOOM, like magic they appear on the screen in the Moleskine Notes app where you can then edit, transcribe, organize, and share. Handy dandy for note takers, list makers, doodlers, scribblers, jotters of ideas, and all the fabulous late night brainstormers of the world.

What could happen if something goes wrong

Every note you take, every word you make, they'll be watching you. Sing it with us now! Holy cow does this smart writing set come with *Privacy Not Included. First off, we can't determine if they meet our Minimum Security Standards, which is bad. Next, their privacy policy only covers their website, not the pen or the app you upload all your notes to. And maybe worst of all, while they say you can request your data be deleted, the "How to contact us" section of the privacy policy doesn't seem to exist. So good luck with that. All this seems pretty awful for a pen that can take everything you write down and upload it to an app where all those brilliant ideas, juicy gossip, and handy phone numbers would live online. There's nothing smart about that.
