Using iAnnotate to take notes on my iPad

As a Ph.D. student I read a lot of journal articles. In order to effectively takes notes while reading, I used to have to print them. One of the reasons/justifications for my ipad purchase was to reduce the amount of printing. After a bit of experimenting I've finally figured out how to effectively use my ipad to take notes. This little visit clip (my first experiment with mobile video blogging) shows you how I do it. Enjoy!

What do you think about the mobile video blog? Can you view it?

Note: I couldn't get the video to successfully upload from my Android phone to here. I'm not sure if the problem is with WordPress for Android,  my WordPress installation, or just that the file was too big. I guess I have some investigating to do.
