I disagree.  An NDA won't usually do squat in that case.

You need to document your invention *in pen* in a good engineering note
book and do things like make patent applications to show beyond a shadow
of a doubt you had the idea and reduced it to practice...

[I've spent some time with the attorney who defended the guy who
invented the hot air popcorn maker and the guy who invented stereo tv.
Not proud about that, but sometimes attorneys can be helpful.]

ps: for the record I hate software patents.
