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.

Poll Results: Ad-ing It Up

Poll Results: Ad-ing It Up -- Last week's release of Eudora 4.3 prompted us to ask what TidBITS readers thought about the option of applications displaying advertisements in exchange for enabling commercially available features. We received more than 850 responses which were decidedly split: 47 percent of respondents indicated they liked the idea at least a little, while 53 percent indicated they disliked or strongly disliked the idea. Discussion on TidBITS Talk also varied, although we understand this topic is difficult to nail down to specifics, since Eudora 4.3 is at the moment the only widely used application following this model - and it has been available for only a week.
