Do you use a paper dayplanner/agenda?

    Since most of us probably like our tech, I'm wondering how many of you use a paper dayplanner/agenda. Do you also use iCal/Outlook calendar and your phone calendar? If so, do you write the stuff in both the dayplanner and your computer/phone calendar?

    I haven't used a paper calendar since I got a Palm Vx in June of 2000.

    I put appointments for the far future on my calendar, so I'll remember them. My phone's pretty nice for giving me a day's notice. Otherwise I haven't used a planner of any sort since 3rd grade (sans the year after I got a concussion)

    I use my iPhone and Outlook pretty extensively. But I do have a big paper calendar on my desk at work that I keep track of some (not all) stuff on. I use it mostly because I like having a quickly-accessible overview of the month available, without having to open up Outlook.

    I don't really have that much to keep track of so I don't use a paper/electronic calendar. I just memorize it.

    But I should really use a paper one. It'd make my life easier.

    I still have a paper calendar on the wall, but seldom write much on it....I don't buy them, I think this one was a freebie from a pizza joint I use. Most of my stuff is on my iPhone and hence on my Macs.

    I book events in my iPhone calendar, it is very convenient. I don't use iCal on OS X, though.

    My school pushes their Agenda/Planner book on students a lot

    But, I still don't use it. Haven't written even one thing in it.


    I do, however, use my Google Calendar.

    Negative. I've been digital for many years.

    I use Siri for everything. Really, I do. I am astounded by people who say they "NEVER" use Siri. I'm setting reminders, alarms, notes, etc., all day every day.

    Ugh. I remember in middle school, we were made to write everything down in our agendas and then the teacher would come by and confirm that we'd copied things down.

    How excessive...

    I've done a bit of everything. Had the Dayrunner in college/grad school. Went to a Handspring PDA at my first job and later an iPaq. Went back to the Dayrunner when the iPaq had an unfortuniate collision with some pavement. Now I keep my calendar on Outlook on my work computer. Don't, for the most part, need to carry it with me as I start and end every day in my office. And if I need it somewhere else, I use Webmail to access it.

    Nope. I bought one that I never used. Don't really use a day planner or calendar.

    A to-do list for the day - pen and paper.
    Events beyond that - iPhone.

    No, I tried to have one last year but it was hardly used. Nowadays I just update the calender on my iPad which syncs through to my other devices.

    Nah - I'm married. It's like using Siri to set reminders, but far more sarcastic.
