    @5: Try using your moleskine-embedded iPhone on your fixed-gear steampunk bike. You’ll explode from hiposity.

  2. Dustin Driver says:

    Why not use a “Little Red Book?” Waaaay more hipster.

  3. Doctor Pickles says:

    Just FYI, that’s an iPod Touch, not an iPhone.
    (You can tell because of the black edge banding instead of the chrome seen on iPhones.)

    I wonder if whoever owns it is super-excited about getting to pay Jobs & Co. for the privilege of upgrading to the 2.0 OS that iPhone users get for free?

    @4: I wholeheartedly disagree. I think all the moleskine has going for it is its discreet exterior. That paper is really quite so-so for liquid inks. I’d use moleskines for hidin’ junk in, and use Rhodia, Clairefontaine, even Black n’ Red for my sensuous prose writin’.

    You fools! Caesar’s Palmtop was hidden in a scroll, not a book.

  6. Inox says:

    If that doesn’t slip out easily, you’re going to look goofier than Maxwell Smart answering it when it rings. :D

  7. DEEPEYES says:

    As pricey as Moleskines are, I’d have a tough time making that first cut. Pick up a cheap bound journal at Half-Price books for this project, and use the Moleskine’s creamy paper for sensuous longhand prose…

    Not comparable.
    Porn appeals to anyone with a libido; Moleskine appeals to hipsters with little to say and too much money to say it with.

  9. Joel Johnson says:

    Charlie, if you read this: that’s really, really fruity.

  10. mistercharlie says:

    Of course I read this! And thanks.

  11. drtwist says:

    DIY? Check
    iphone? Check
    Moleskine? Check

    it’s like the hipster trifecta

  12. Antinous says:

    But Pooklord, most of us are too hopped up on anti-depressants, anxiolytics and Vicodin to have any libido left. Let us enjoy our moleskines in peace.

  13. Halloween Jack says:

    MITTZNZ: That would be about as useful as trying to explain the appeal of porn.

  14. technogeek says:

    For what it’s worth, I’m told SCA members have been embedding palmtops in mock “wax tablets” for years, both making them acceptable in the medieval-costuming aesthetic and mapping them to the nearest equivalent erasable note-taking device of the time.

  15. MITTZNZ says:

    Somebody needs to explain to me the appeal of the moleskine.
