Smart Pen for Interviews and Other Uses?

This post on the blog Digital Ethnography sent me to the Livescribe site to look at their smartpen.  It records audio.  In conjunction with coded paper in a notebook, you turn the recording on and off.  It also transfers your notes to your computer as images and OCRs (?) them so you can search them.  I figured they would make their money from the paper,  but they say you can print your own.  (Of course, you have to give up your favorite pen and notebook.)

I haven’t investigated this in detail — am posting this in the hope that a reader either has or will investigate further and let us all know, in more detail, what it does and whether it lives up to its promises.
