Record Online Meetings in Pear Note

While Pear Note is primarily geared toward recording notes in the physical world, it's possible to use it to record things in the virtual world as well. For instance, you can use it to record and take notes on Skype calls. To do this:

  1. Download Soundflower and install it (along with the Soundflowerbed app that comes with it).
  2. Download LineIn and install it.
  3. Start Soundflowerbed, and select Built-in Output (or whatever output you'd like to listen to the conversation on).
  4. Start LineIn, and select your microphone (e.g. Built-in Mic) as the input and Soundflower (2ch) as the output, then press Pass Thru.
  5. Open Pear Note Preferences, select Recording, and select Soundflower (2ch) as the audio device.
  6. Open Skype Preferences, select Audio, and select Soundflower (2ch) as the audio output and your microphone (e.g. Built-in Mic) as the audio input.
  7. Hit record in Pear Note and make your Skype call.

This will allow you to conduct your Skype call while Pear Note records both your audio and the other participant's.

To celebrate Independence Day in the United States, the folks at iFixit are offering free “iPhone Liberation Kits” from 1 July until 5 July. The kits, which are being offered for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5, include all the tools needed to replace Apple’s proprietary pentalobe screws with standard Phillips screws. iFixit offered free shipping to the first 1,776 people who ordered them, but they quickly sold those, so now you’ll have to pay $5 shipping per order.favicon follow link

I can't figure out how to get free shipping. A shipping charge was added when I used the wizard to enter shipping information. Has anyone used the process without incurring shipping charges?

The shipping is not free; it costs at least five dollars.

OK, thanks. I don't want to complain, because this is still an amazing deal. The article did mention free shipping, though, so I just wanted to check. Thanks again.

They sold out of the 1,776 kits fast. They're now offering the kits for free for the rest of the week, but with shipping charges: http://www.ifixit.com/LiberationWeekSoldOut
