Add Notes to Pre-existing Recordings in Pear Note

While most people think of Pear Note as a tool for recording notes live, it can be used to take notes on pre-existing recordings as well. If you have an audio or video recording that you'd like to take notes on in Pear Note, simply:

  1. Drag the audio/video file to Pear Note and import it into a new document.
  2. Hit play.
  3. Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.

Now you can take notes that will be synced to the recording, just as if you'd recorded them live.

Microsoft Publishes Wrong 800-number

Send Article to a Friend

In the "Oops" department this week, we've heard that Microsoft sent out a letter about upgrading Word to a bunch of customers. This letter listed an 800 number that people could call, but the number listed goes to a consultant who's a tad displeased to be receiving a lot of calls from Word users, especially since he pays for every call. It sounds like a Freudian slip for a company that has eschewed toll-free support for so long.
