Taking notes on a computer or phone is never going to be as easy as taking notes with a pad and pen. Especially if you used to be a policy debater or ever learned shorthand. You have a method for speedily jotting down all the relevant stuff that's just light years faster than predictive type and whatever the hell gadgets like the Note 7 promise you can do with a stylus. It's what makes Wacom's Bamboo Spark incredibly appealing. It's a pad, pen and paper that allows you to digitise all of your notes, giving you the beauty of the cloud without all the hassle of hunt and pecking on your phone.

The Wacom Intuos Draw is the entry-level product in Wacom's new line of Intuos tablets, boasting an accessible price for simplified features. For amateurs and enthusiasts the Draw is a great first tablet on a tight budget, though for anyone used to using older tablets in the Intuos range the functionality will feel very stripped back.
If you're hesitant to give up pen and paper for all your note-taking needs, Wacom's Bamboo Spark digitising notebook has added another good reason to avoid a touchscreen stylus for a little while longer: handwriting to text conversion.
Wacom's new Bamboo Spark is great fun to play with. It's a new take on graphics tablet technology where your pen and paper notes and sketches are converted straight to a digital image on your device. As Gizmodo's resident cosplayer I went hands-on with the Spark, using it to design one of my planned costumes for next year.
I love writing stuff down. Well, I love the idea of writing stuff down. Often I abandon the actual task because keeping track and archiving written notes is a huge pain in the arse. Wacom has a new toy called Bamboo Spark that digitises your handwritten notes without you having to think about it... much.
If you're a tablet user who likes to draw, you know that the experience offered by an iPad or other consumer-oriented tablet is pretty limited. Wacom, maker of drawing-specific digital interfaces, now has a portable and powerful solution in the Cintiq Companion. It's great at one thing, but sometimes that's just not enough.
Wacom is covering all grounds lately with new products. Its latest is the Bamboo Pad, a touch surface with the gesture control the likes of an Apple Magic Trackpad, with some added functionality for drawing and jotting down notes.
On the heels of its Windows 8 and Android tablets, Wacom just announced a new sleeker and brighter Intuos. The new models are geared less toward professionals, and more toward everyday folk looking to draw and sketch on their computer.
If you love the idea of pretending to be a hipster graphic designer with one of Wacom's beautiful Multitouch Cintiq tablets but can't quite stretch to the $US3700 price tag, we have good news. There is now a cute and much more wallet-friendly 13-inch version.
Less than a year after it was originally unveiled, Wacom has announced an updated version of its largest interactive pen display, the Cintiq 24HD Touch. As the name implies, the device expands its touch functionality beyond just single finger taps. Like your smartphone, you can now perform multi-finger gestures for panning, zooming and rotating your artistic creations.
Conceding that sometimes making a quick drawing on a piece of paper still has the occasional benefit over sketching on a tablet, Wacom has updated its touchscreen-friendly Bamboo stylus with a capped ballpoint pen on one end.
