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.

iPod nano Skips After Update

Send Article to a Friend

I've been remiss in not writing this up sooner, but I remember it only when I'm in the car, listening to podcasts or music on our iPod nano. Since the most recent iPod update - iPod Updater 2006-06-28 - our iPod nano has suffered from frequent (at least one per car trip) 1- to 2-second bits of garbled playback. Another person reported this on TidBITS Talk as well, although it's not clear if the problem is widespread. Since the iPod Updater 2006-06-28 contains iPod nano Software 1.2, with Nike+iPod support (and unspecified bug fixes), if you're not using the Nike+iPod Sport Kit (see "Grab Your iPod and Run" for details), I'd encourage you to hold off on this particular iPod update. Apple knows about the problem and is undoubtedly working on a fix.

If the problem bothers you sufficiently, you can restore to the previous iPod nano Software 1.1.1. Look in your /Applications/Utilities folder for an iPod Software Updater folder, which contains older iPod updaters. I launched iPod Updater 2006-03-23, the second-most-recent one, clicked the Restore button (remember that this will erase everything on the iPod, so do a restore only if you're loading everything from the Mac anyway), and let it restore. Before copying music and podcasts back to the iPod nano, iTunes tried to get me to install the bad update again; I demurred, and all was fine. I later let the bad update install again for testing purposes, and the problem returned, so I repeated the entire process to revert back to iPod nano Software 1.1.1. I'll revisit this issue once I'm ready to test the just-arrived Nike+iPod Sport Kit.
