Avoid Naming Pear Note Files

If you create a lot of documents, coming up with a name for them can sometimes be a hassle. This is especially true now that search is becoming a more prevalent way to find documents. Pear Note provides a way to have the application automatically generate a filename so you can avoid this hassle. To use this:

  1. Open Saving under Pear Note's preferences.
  2. Select a default save location.
  3. Select a default save name template (Pear Note's help documents all the fields that can be automatically filled in).
  4. Check the box stating that Command-S saves without prompting.
  5. If you decide you want to name a particular note later, just use Save As... instead.

Fun discussion. I may have missed you saying so, but the 5c colors are the same/sameish as the iPod family colors, not to mention being compatible with what I've seen of the IOS 7 design direction. Personally, I like them. To your target audience comments: fwiw, my poll of two youngsters (16 and 22) gave a 50/50 split on whether they liked the colors.

I will chalk it up to being punchy... but to see the slow motion ability of the new 5s as gimmicky, and ultimately unused, shows lack of imagination. I think both the camera and the fingerprint sensor will make this a huge hit.

You may be right. Jim Dalrymple's review of the iPhone 5 makes it look pretty cool.

What I didn't process at the time was that it's an effect you apply in editing, not something that you activate when you're taking the video. So, in retrospect, it looks like a cool feature!
