Fill in Gaps in Pear Note

If you ever find yourself zoning out during a meeting or class, only later to realize that you forgot to take notes for 20 minutes, Pear Note makes it easy to fill in those gaps. To do so:

  1. Open your Pear Note document.
  2. Hit play.
  3. Click on the last text you did type to jump to that point in the recording.
  4. Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
  5. Take notes on the part you missed.

Your new notes will be synced to the recording just as if you'd taken them live with the rest of your notes.

Actually, Lex doesn't tell us much about what to do with the old iPad. A question is: are we limited in how many devices we can run our apps on? If so, how do we tell our computer that the iPad 1 is gone - left home never to return? Or is that unnecessary?

Seems to me he covers it pretty well: hand it down, donate it to charity, give it to a school, sell it personally, sell it to a reseller like NextWorth or Gazelle, turn it into a single-purpose device, and so on... If you have other suggestions for what do with an old iPad, please leave them here!

Luckily, there's no need to deactivate an old device or anything like that; apps are tied to an iTunes account, not to individual devices. (iTunes accounts are tied to Macs, though, so if you ever get rid of a Mac, it's easiest to choose Store > Deauthorize This Computer before you reformat the hard drive.)
