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.

Submit Your Holiday 2003 Gift Ideas -- We may not approve of ads for Christmas sales appearing the day after Halloween, but it is now once again a decent time to start thinking about the year's annual spectacle of consumer confidence. For us at TidBITS, that translates into sharing the best holiday gift ideas from readers in our traditional holiday gift issue, slated for publication during the second week in December. So tell us what gifts you're planning to bestow on your friends or family, or what gifts you're hoping to receive yourself. As in previous years, we'll be collecting ideas in TidBITS Talk, so please send your suggestions to <tidbits-talk@tidbits.com>. We've already started threads for specific categories, and there's a "Respond (via email)" link for you to use at the bottom of each message in the TidBITS Talk Web archive (check out the Hot Topics in TidBITS Talk article at the end of this issue for direct links). As always, please suggest only one product or idea per message, give the reason why you're recommending it, make sure to include a URL or other necessary contact information, and recommend only others' products. Also try to concentrate on items that haven't appeared in past years. Thanks! [ACE]
