They have introduced a post-it featuring a RFID chip which sends what has been written to a program (running on a normal PC) that automatically creates a database of post-its and eventually communicates to Outlook meeting and events to keep track of.
Is this really needed?
Is this the right approach to "getting things done"?
I don't think that the post-it needs to be revived: it works because it's simple, fast and comes in nice colors.
Connecting it to the computer makes it less easier to use and creates a burden on the user: what if the PC is turned off? How are post-it kept synchronized between the computer and the fridge?
It's clear that the first time the post-it is not copied to the computer because it is turned off the user will stop using such device and will return the the old post-it.
Moreover I believe that smartphones have the potential to become the "digital post-it": think about the "Notes" application of the iPhone, isn't it enough?
