Thanks to all for your insights. I think that I will likely use mine on occasion for specific tasks but not a ton. Special thanks to MISS DIVA for putting me onto the 'Daily Note' posts on You Tube. I've only barely scratched the surface of these and they are great! (although a huge time-suck!!!)
The only down side to the videos is it makes me want to go out and buy a Note 2 today. But I will suck it up and wait another couple weeks (patience is not a strong suit for me!) until the Note 3 comes out and make the decision then. I'm counting on all of you to upgrade immediately and tell me how much you love (or not) the Note 3 as compared with your Note 2's!
