Productivity experts will also testify to the psychological and mental benefits of writing by hand. But existing solutions so far have one critical limitation: they work only on screens or on special paper.

Alexa might not yet be the household name that Siri already is, but it could very soon be. That is, if Amazon really starts pushing its Echo cloud-based home assistant.
