Add Notes to Pre-existing Recordings in Pear Note

While most people think of Pear Note as a tool for recording notes live, it can be used to take notes on pre-existing recordings as well. If you have an audio or video recording that you'd like to take notes on in Pear Note, simply:

  1. Drag the audio/video file to Pear Note and import it into a new document.
  2. Hit play.
  3. Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.

Now you can take notes that will be synced to the recording, just as if you'd recorded them live.

1Password 3.3 -- Agile Web Solutions has released a substantial update to the popular password management utility 1Password. Version 3.3 improves integration with Dropbox, adds support for beta versions of Firefox 4, and adds support for Camino 2.0.3. 1PasswordAnywhere gains search and copy capabilities, and can now be set to lock after 1 minute of idle time. The update also fixes an issue that prevented initial clicks on the Firefox 1Password toolbar buttons from registering, and another issue that would cause the 1Password menu to open and close when pressing modifier keys.
