Record Online Meetings in Pear Note

While Pear Note is primarily geared toward recording notes in the physical world, it's possible to use it to record things in the virtual world as well. For instance, you can use it to record and take notes on Skype calls. To do this:

  1. Download Soundflower and install it (along with the Soundflowerbed app that comes with it).
  2. Download LineIn and install it.
  3. Start Soundflowerbed, and select Built-in Output (or whatever output you'd like to listen to the conversation on).
  4. Start LineIn, and select your microphone (e.g. Built-in Mic) as the input and Soundflower (2ch) as the output, then press Pass Thru.
  5. Open Pear Note Preferences, select Recording, and select Soundflower (2ch) as the audio device.
  6. Open Skype Preferences, select Audio, and select Soundflower (2ch) as the audio output and your microphone (e.g. Built-in Mic) as the audio input.
  7. Hit record in Pear Note and make your Skype call.

This will allow you to conduct your Skype call while Pear Note records both your audio and the other participant's.

Eudora 6.1 Adds Google Searching

Send Article to a Friend

Eudora 6.1 Adds Google Searching -- Qualcomm has released Eudora 6.1, the latest version of their venerable email client. New in Eudora 6.1 is a toolbar-based Search Bar that enables you to search either within Eudora or in Google via your Web browser; you can also Control- or right-click a word and choose it from the contextual menu that appears to search for it in Google. Another new feature (though a more-limited version appeared in Eudora 6.0; see "Eudora 6.0 Slams Spam, Concentrates Content" in TidBITS-696 for more on that release) is Transfer to Selection, which enables you to Control- or right-click a word in Eudora and choose a similarly named mailbox into which the message will be transferred. IMAP synchronization has been improved with the capability to synchronize specific IMAP mailboxes on mail checks and easier resynchronization of entire mail folders. Eudora 6.1 provides more control over content concentration, which it uses to hide quoted and other less relevant text appearing in the preview pane. Lastly, and perhaps the most welcome (if depressing) feature is the addition of Junk mail statistics to the Statistics window. It's harsh being shown that 61 percent of my mail is spam overall, and that the percentage is more like 75 to 78 percent for the day or week.
