 Todays Episode is sponsored by RocketBook. I hate wasting paper. If I could I would not use pen and paper at all. But I love the feeling of writing and drawing with pen on a nice paper. Somehow I feel I am connected to it. But always hated the fact that i cannot bring my drawings or ideas to the digital world.

Now Rocketbook is the exact amalgamation of both the physical and the virtual world. Hear this, you can draw or write on the rocketbook, take a picture with their rockebook app and magically it cleans the picture and sends it to Google drive, evernote, dropbox one drive, one note, slack, box, icoud,imessage or even classic email. Just configure the symbols once, and thats it. You snap a picture and your drawings or plans or notes, are right in the drive or dropbox or anything that you choose to send it to. once you are done, simply use a moist towel and you can erase it…only to be used again. Saving paper. Rockebook
