Logitech to Transition Digital Writing Business to Destiny Wireless

Well I can't say that I'm very surprised by this press release. Logitech hasn't done anything to improve neither the technology nor the consumer experience since they launched the IO pen way back in 2002.

I must say that I feel a bit sad though since I remember thinking that Logitech really could give the technology the consumer focus it always lacked. Now we hope that Livescribe has what it takes!

Looking back to the 2002 IO launch I found this snippet...

"Logitech is taking a very different approach to digital writing for the PC," said David Henry, senior vice president and general manager of Logitech'sControl Devices Business Unit. "While other attempts at pen input have started with the PC, with the goal of making the PC more friendly, our point of departure is pen and paper, with the goal of making these elements more effective in the digital world.
"With the Logitech io, there's no need to change the way you work, or to lug your PC to meetings," Mr. Henry continued. "We believe this product will be well received by today's mobile workforce, as well as consumers who are looking to be more effective and creative with their note taking."
