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.

20-inch iMac G5 Drops $200, 17-inch Gone

Send Article to a Friend

20-inch iMac G5 Drops $200, 17-inch Gone -- Now we know why Apple continues to sell the iMac G5 after debuting the iMac Intel Core Duo model at Macworld Expo last month: to clear out inventory. Apple has stopped selling the 17-inch iMac G5 and dropped the price of its remaining stock of 20-inch iMac G5 models by $200 to $1,500. The Intel-based iMacs sell for $1,300 and $1,700, depending on whether you want the 17-inch or 20-inch model.

Early testing by Macworld shows that for most purposes, the Intel iMac is slightly but noticeably faster for native applications; system boot time and application launches happen much more quickly. The G5 won't become obsolete: universal binaries will be developed for years to come, so if you were on the fence on an iMac or just need a mid-range desktop that runs non-universal software (such as Adobe Photoshop, for example), this might be the time to buy.
