How to go low tech with high tech…

PocketMod is a web application (accessible from  any computer) that allows you to create lists to print to paper and carry in your pocket. The ultimate in low cost PDA (person digital assistant).

It uses Flash and templates to allow you to create Calendars, contact lists, shopping lists, a cheque book, and much more. Using RSS it gives you a pocket version of Time or Wired magazine. Or tip and conversion tables, Soduku (different each time you select it), music staff, and so on. You get to pick 8 pages.
Just select an item, drag it onto the section you want it on,  and click Print. Then a little folding and one short cut and you have a little 8 page pocket book, a low tech paper based PDA you can scribble all over.
