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.

Tech Geeks Film Explosive Chimney Stack Demolition

Send Article to a Friend

TidBITS contributor Julio Ojeda-Zapata of the St. Paul Pioneer Press pulled an undesirable weekend reporting shift recently, but was able to turn it into a grand geek adventure by filming the explosive demolition of the 280-foot chimney stack on a decommissioned power plant. He relied on his iPhone 5c, a Nokia Lumia 1020, a Sony handheld camcorder, and the help of a number of friends, one of whom was flying camera-equipped drones above the site. Julio pulled it all together with Final Cut Pro X and shared the full story — along with the video — on TwinCities.com.Generic Globefollow link

I'm wondering why only two viewpoints were shown on the story...with no signs of the drones?

In the video, there are a lot of aerial shots from the drones.

Sorry, Adam, I used John B's link above instead of going back to your original post which indeed, has a ton of drone shots. My mistake. Thanks for pointing it out.
