Update: False alarm. It looks like you have more time now. Two days more, to be precise.

If you're in the market for a way to handwrite notes and convert them into a digital format that you can edit, head over to StackSocial right away and buy the discounted Equil Smartpen 2. It's currently going for $129.99, which is $20 less than Amazon's current rate and down from the regular price of $169.99. Then come back and read the remainder of this post. The deal expires in just three hours from publication time, so the pressure is on.

Okay, so you figure you can scroll down the rest of this page before the clock hits zero? I hear you. Here's the gist of how the Equil Smartpen 2 works. This isn't some fancy stylus that you rub against your screen. You use the pen to write on good old-fashioned paper. It comes with a receiver that, when clipped to the paper you're writing on, captures everything you scribble and saves a digital copy. This video gives you an idea.

You can select from a number of colors and pen tips to write with, and once everything is saved, you can go back to add text or photos to your notes. The rechargeable pen works for up to eight hours.

There are a number of Android apps available in the Play Store for you to take advantage of. I'll link to a couple below, but don't let the timer run out while you're checking them out. $40 is nothing to sneeze at, and the shipping is free, though you will have to wait a couple of weeks for the unit to arrive at your door. Hey, you're the one in a hurry here, not them.
