Add Slides to Pear Note from Other Applications

If you have some slides in any application, and you'd like to add them to a Pear Note document, there's no need to save them out and then import them into Pear Note. Instead, you can send them directly to Pear Note through a PDF service. For instance, if you had slides in Keynote, just:

  1. Select Print within Keynote.
  2. Click the PDF button.
  3. Select Send PDF to Pear Note.

This can also be used to import other document types into Pear Note to take notes on them as well.

Netscape Sleep Plug-In

In an effort to preserve its market share by prolonging the lives of its users, Netscape today released a Sleep plug-in for use in Netscape Navigator. The demo is a huge download, but there's a workaround for users with slow connections or who can't wait for some shut-eye:

  • put your face close to monitor so that screen takes up all your visible space
  • push the power button on the monitor and wait for the image to fade from your burnt retinas

This workaround provides just basic functionality; if you want the dream module, you'll need to download the software and manually move your eyeballs rapidly to simulate R.E.M. sleep (looping "Losing My Religion" in the background is not required for this build of the module, pending negotiations with Warner Brothers Records). Be forewarned the software is still in "preview beta" stage, and according to the ReadMe file it's "barely stable, it probably won't work, but download it anyway so we can justify our over-inflated stock price."
