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:

  1. Open your Pear Note document.
  2. Hit play.
  3. Click on the last text you did type to jump to that point in the recording.
  4. Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
  5. 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.

Microsoft Office 2004 Ships

Send Article to a Friend

Microsoft Office 2004 Ships -- Microsoft has officially released Office 2004 for Mac OS X, a significant revision to the near-ubiquitous suite of productivity tools. We plan to look more closely at the changes in Word, Entourage, Excel, and PowerPoint once we've received the software and evaluated whether the new features and fixed bugs in the final versions of each program are worthwhile. For now, suffice to say that you can purchase it for $400 (list price) or $150 (educational); upgrades cost $240. Individual products are also available if you don't want the full suite. You can also download a test drive version (186 MB) that works for 30 days, but keep in mind that Office 2004 requires Mac OS X 10.2.8 or higher. [TJE]
