No matter if you're left-brained or right-brained, Microsoft OneNote 2010 is the perfect tool for capturing and organizing all of your ideas. In fact, it made us think — what if one of the world's greatest inventors had used OneNote?
Well, we acted on that thought and created a fun little video to give you a glimpse at how Thomas Edison and his team might have used OneNote. Check out this fun little video and then enter for a chance to win a trip to the Museum of Science & Industry in Chicago — or one of many weekly drawings for an Xbox 360 with Kinect. (Sweepstakes ends 8/17/2011.*)
Why would OneNote have been a great tool for Edison and his team? For starters, OneNote makes for a great digital notepad. Instead of using and keeping reams of paper, OneNote would have given them the freedom to input their brilliant ideas as quickly as they thought of them all. With the ability to start typing anywhere on the canvas, OneNote could have been the digital extension of Edison's brain. And, with its handwriting and inking features, OneNote would have given Edison the ability to write just like he did in his paper notebooks.
Even better, with the audio and video recording features, they could have easily captured brainstorms and embedded them right in the notebook. Imagine if Edison could have kept such a record of the actual discussions that led to the invention of the light bulb!
Let's face it, Edison and his team may have had a lot of ideas, but so do you! The beauty of OneNote is in its easy-to-use tab interface. With a simple click, you can build a notebook that helps you to keep your most inventive (and even your most mundane) ideas organized and easily searchable.
One thing that Edison knew well is that you can't keep a great idea to yourself. Can you imagine if he had never shared his light bulb invention with anyone? With OneNote, it's easy for anyone to share their notebooks with friends and colleagues.
We think Edison and his team would have found OneNote to be a handy tool to keep all of their creative genius organized. We hope you will, too. Watch the video, and then check out the other Office blogs for the full run down on all of the videos we created. And don't forget to enter in our prize drawing!
