    Complete geek question, but here goes.

    In the film "Hidden Figures", Al Harrison (Kevin Costner) carries around a leather bound, shirt pocket notepad with two mini pencils/pens in it. Any idea what make/model is?

    Notepads such as that used to be quite popular --- IBM would issue new employees one embossed w/ the word "THINK" in gold leaf --- there was always a stack of matching pads in the supply cabinet. This was the source for the product name "ThinkPad" (which was originally envisioned as a line of pen computers) --- see the book ThinkPad: A Different Shade of Blue for the back story.
