Tinderbox 2 Improves Weblog Tools -- Eastgate Systems has released Tinderbox 2, an update to its utility for storing and organizing notes and other informational content (see "Light Your Fire with Tinderbox" in TidBITS-651). In addition to gaining an overall speed boost and interface polish, the new version includes the Tinderbox Weblog Assistant for setting up a personal weblog. If you already use weblog software such as Moveable Type, Radio UserLand, or Blogger, Tinderbox 2 can easily send notes as weblog entries. The Tinderbox 2 upgrade is available for $70, which includes a year of free upgrades; if you're still within a year of purchasing a previous version of Tinderbox, downloading and installing the 3.7 MB demo automatically unlocks the application. A full version of the program costs $145. [JLC]
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:
- Open your Pear Note document.
- Hit play.
- Click on the last text you did type to jump to that point in the recording.
- Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
- 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.
