The moving finger writes ….

The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,
Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.

Omar Khayyam


Remember those lines? Did you ever wonder what it would feel like to have a moving finger that writes?

And today I know how it feels. Because today I bought Dan Bricklin’s Note Taker.

A delightful and slightly obsessive-compulsive little application, letting you take simple notes quickly and efficiently on to your iPhone. No mess, no fuss.

And, unlike Omar Khayyam’s Moving Finger, this one can be lured back To cancel half A Line. There’s an erase function.

Easy to use, easy to share what you write. Dan, well done. [Disclaimer: I know Dan and count him amongst my friends.]

  1. Don’t mean to be rude, but given the opening lines of this post, I was expecting something a little more philosophical than that! (Nice to be reminded of the Rubaiyat, though, especially now, as my old Dad was fond of quoting it at Christmas :-) ).

Let me know what you think
