Using books and binders or a laptop is not very practical, since I don't always have a seat and occationaly busses tend to be quite crowded.
My idea involves using an ebookreader like the Sony Reader, since most of my course notes are electronic. This solves the issue with thick books and large binders. But this still leaves the problem of taking notes.
A paper notebook requires two hands, a voice recorder gets me strange looks and writting on the sides of the bus has the problem of not always having the same bus.
My question is: what do you do to learn on the road? How do you take notes, what experiences do you have with Ebook readers (dedicated devices, PDA or other) in real life situations? Is it practical to use a PDA both as reader and notebook? Do you know of any sites or forums specific about this?"
