How can I take my notetaking to the cloud? (iPad? Livescribe?)

[academic/reading-geek filter] how to take notes on books within books?

My apologies for this very convoluted question...tl;dr: I guess I'm asking how people deal with taking notes from books, not just on the book's content and structure etc, but mapping bodies of literatures mentioned in those books. I would love to hear if you have a system that works for you. More after the jump. [more inside]

Ok, it's possible I am just grasping at straws to find an excuse to own an iPad.

I'm trying to figure out if a iPad is what I'm looking for to help me reduce my physical books, particularly cookbooks and printed (from the internet) recipes. I want to know first whether iPad is the way to go for my specific needs (details within) and then, if an iPad is what I want, which generation iPad & apps would help me do what I want. Or maybe there is a better solution? [more inside]

What's the closest app to a paper notebook for android?

I would like to find a notetaking application that is flipable. Rather than having to open and close various, lists, tabs or folders of notes I want basically one very long note pad with several pages. Basically I'm hoping to find an app that is exactly like a small paper notebook that you would put in your pocket. It's not one note, it's not ak notes, it's not Evernote. Does anyone have any suggestions? Bonus points if it is sinkable.

Note-taking Firefox extension?

Are there any Firefox (or Chrome or Safari, I guess) add-ons that will allow me to make a blank tab that I can type text into? In other words, any extensions that will allow me to take notes inside FF rather than in another program?

Where can I find a simple native tree pad app for Mac OS X?

Where can I find a simple native tree pad app for Mac OS X? It doesn't have to be fancy, with todo lists, rich text editor, tags, whatever, it just has to have a navigation tree, and a basic text editor for the tree nodes. The ideal solution would be something like KeepNote, but native for OSX, and not necessarily with all the fancy features. [more inside]

Need a good way to take notes in college

I really need a good note taking app for my iPad. I'm studying in the Computer Science major. I take Discrete Math, Software Design, Economics 101, and Precalculus. I'm currently using Noterize, but I don't like its lack of organization of notes. It doesn't really feel like a fully baked app. I would really prefer something that lets me type, scribble with my Pogo Sketch stylus, and also support bullet points. A really good UI would also be nice though not the most important. And third party export would be a nice plus. Are there any good apps like this?

Help Me Capture Text From Books!

What kind of options do I have for a gadget of some kind that can capture bits of text from a book or magazine? I read a lot and always take notes, highlight, underline, note page numbers to refer back to, all these things to use for reference later on. But actually copying paragraphs into a notebook takes time, highlighting and underlining doesn't really help as I have to go back to the book - but rarely do. Since I keep so much information on my computer, I have wondered if there are small devices (mini-scanners?) that can somehow capture a few lines of text and store it as a .jpg or something. It seems as if I have seen or heard of these but I really don't know what to look for. By the way, I have used Jott to read a paragraph and have it in my email as transcribed text. That's nice, but I don't want to make a phone call every time I want to capture some text. As always, thanks in advance!

Notetaking software suggestions please

'm looking for a easy-to-use software package that will allow me to 1) take notes during phone conversation, 2) copy & paste from email, website, word processing document into it, (I use and favor Open Office Writer, although I own MS Word and Wordperfect), allow to copy and paste the other way too. It should live in my system tray to allow fast access but not hog a lot of RAM. Any body here have anything like that? Oh, and I prefer it be free MS OneNote looks great, but too pricey for me right now.
