In assessing the benefits of Qualcomm's acquisition of Now Software, you overlook Now Contact and Now Up-to-Date. My guess is that Qualcomm will develop these two products further and integrate then with the Eudora, Eudora Internet Mail Server, and Qualcomm's WorldMail servers. Scheduling and calendaring are starting to become a part of the corporate network solution. A calendaring and scheduling standard is being developed by the IETF, and should be ready in a year or so (a conservative guess on my part). Additionally, remember that Qualcomm's Eudora division is competing with Netscape, Microsoft and Lotus (among others), all of whom have a calendaring solution.
Add Slides to Pear Note from Other Applications
If you have some slides in any application, and you'd like to add them to a Pear Note document, there's no need to save them out and then import them into Pear Note. Instead, you can send them directly to Pear Note through a PDF service. For instance, if you had slides in Keynote, just:
- Select Print within Keynote.
- Click the PDF button.
- Select Send PDF to Pear Note.
This can also be used to import other document types into Pear Note to take notes on them as well.
