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.

New List Prices

Send Article to a Friend

I know that list prices aren't as useful as the street prices, But we don't know what the street prices will be, and they are likely to fluctuate until distribution settles down and everything is readily available. For what it's worth, then... (compare with the table in TidBITS-143 - you do use Easy View so it's easy to go back to old issues, no?). The prices that interest me the most are the relatively low prices for the Duos, especially in comparison to the 145, 160, and 180. It makes sense because the Duos have no floppy drives and fewer ports, but I'm still slightly surprised Apple didn't increase the price for them simply because they are new and cool.
