Livescribe Pen (NB must keep buying their paper)
iPad, Wacom APP, Wacom Stylus.

Moving slightly away from the topic of active network visualisation..
One of the guys I work with has a great setup based on a Wacom tablet
and Microsoft OneNote. It's not exactly mobile but I'm sure there are
options out there to make it so. Obviously it wouldn't have to be
OneNote either -- that's just his weapon of choice.
This allows him to capture tidbits of information, screen grabs from
data sheets/whatever, mock up quick diagrams and have it all available
in a single "pannable" interface. When it's time to cut a "proper"
diagram, he takes the sketch and uses diagramming-app-of-choice.
I'm slightly less organised - I start with paper and then use Visio
when required. I quite like Visio but there are definitely times when
it makes me want to put my fist through the monitor ;-)
