Answer

This question was answered on June 10, 1999. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

CNN just ran a piece on the iPen The journalist basically said that it required more "training" of the system and the person than he was willing to deal with If you simply want it to make a digital record of your handwriting, it may be OK In order for the handwriting to be recognized by the computer (OCR) you must learn how to write in a way that the computer can recognize it I don't think in it's current state that it will save that much time.
