A little story about an inventive, Swedish-based company who’s dedication to their customers consistently delivers the latest and greatest in high-quality notebooks to support your lifestyle.
The world is changing all around us, and technology has injected itself into just about every facet of our lives. There really is no denying it; just take a moment to look around you right now. People are interacting more and more not only with one another through technology but with technology itself.
Some people think, “What is this world coming to?” with conversations going from in-depth, face-to-face dialogue to an abbreviated texts that takes a mere 20 seconds to compose. There’s an App for just about everything, from the ever popular Candy Crush (which has users’ fingers tied up for hours throughout the day) to Apps that allow users to open and close their garage door from virtually anywhere at the touch of a button on their smart phone. Smart Phone in hand and just about anything is possible.
With all of the latest development in technology and all the convenience it has to offer it got the creative folks at Whitelines thinking. As our lives become more and more entwined and dependent on the convenience of technology why not incorporate this useful feature into all that we do with our notebooks. Whitelines Link does just that.
Whitelines Link takes the accessibility and speed of modern technology and combines it with the classic medium of pen and paper. The latest and greatest product from the innovative company was released early this year and quickly became some of the best-selling notebooks from the company of all time.
Why all the hype with the line? Can’t a picture on your phone simply do the same thing? The cool thing about Whitelines Link is that the App (available for free in the App Store) will recognize, capture and enhance your writing, dropping out the background and keeping only what you have created on the page. Simply open the App on your phone, hover the phone over a Link notebook page, and the App will automatically capture the image- no centering, focusing or click of a virtual button necessary. Once the notes are digitalized, your options are essentially endless.
You can choose to simply store your treasured works in a cloud, which not only backs up all of your important documents should you misplace your favorite notebook at the most inopportune time, but also condenses the volumes of writings you have into a virtual filing cabinet you can have with you at all times with the touch of the button. Have a great idea and just happen to bump into a colleague or potential client without your notebook? Simply pull up your document, explain the concept and attach it to an email to follow up. Horrible at organizing your notes? File them all away and utilize Evernote to allow you to search your database of notesby specific key words and subjects.
Not only does Whitelines Link enable you to have all of your notebooks at the touch of a button, but it also allows for easy sharing. You can push notes to your Dropbox or Evernote account or simply attach the creation to an email and send away. Think of the possibilities this new technology provides. Still a fan of the personal touch of a handwritten letter? Write it out and Link it to your family and friends. Want to digitalize your sketches to share? Classmate miss a 4-pager note day? Whitelines Link makes it easy, fast and convenient to share and connect with others.
I’m going to be the first to admit it; I’m an avid list taker. There is something so comforting about creating lists and having the ability to check them off. I’ve tried Apps that were created for you to generate and organize lists so that you have them with you at all times, but there is absolutely nothing that will provide me with the same gratification as a pen and piece of paper. Once something is physically written down on a piece of paper, you can do it and cross it off or it just sits there; you can not delete it with the backspace key. And don’t get me started with the satisfaction of that pen sliding across the page creating a clean, long line through your handwriting. With Whitelines Link I can designate a page for each list that I have and always have the most up-to-date list stored. So if I just “happen” to stumble into a Sephora, I’ve got a list of the products I’m currently lusting after at the touch of a button. When the BF mentions some item he’s thinking about buying that I’ve never heard of before, I can jot it down, Link it, and stash the notebook away somewhere safe. When his birthday rolls around, take a guess at who receives The-Best-Girlfriend-of-The-Year award. And from time to time, I’ll pull out my Link, draw a goofy picture (though, let’s be serious, I have not one artistic bone in this body when it comes to drawing) and scribble something clever down to send to a friend to brighten their day.
I’m a child of the 80s (by 10 days) so I am ALL for technology. I love the ability to shoot the rental units a quick text letting them know I did in fact make it to my destination without a bear mauling my vehicle on the way. I enjoy and (embarrassingly) have come to expect speedy and convenient connectivity with those around me. But there are things that simply cannot be conveyed through a 140 character tweet or the confines of typed out emails. Apart from almost completely taking the personal aspect out communication, there are things that simply cannot be put into characters.
Whitelines Link is the new notebook of now. Break free from the confines of Times New Roman. Stay prepared and keep your writings safe and accessible. Embrace technology, but also embrace your creativity.
