Avoid Naming Pear Note Files

If you create a lot of documents, coming up with a name for them can sometimes be a hassle. This is especially true now that search is becoming a more prevalent way to find documents. Pear Note provides a way to have the application automatically generate a filename so you can avoid this hassle. To use this:

  1. Open Saving under Pear Note's preferences.
  2. Select a default save location.
  3. Select a default save name template (Pear Note's help documents all the fields that can be automatically filled in).
  4. Check the box stating that Command-S saves without prompting.
  5. If you decide you want to name a particular note later, just use Save As... instead.

An iPhone in a Blender?

Send Article to a Friend

This is just painful to watch. There's a company called Blendtec that makes a high-powered blender. To showcase its capabilities, they've done a number of hilarious "Will It Blend?" videos that feature a wide variety of objects being subjected to blending. They've destroyed a can of fake cheese, old toilet components, and even a garden hose. But for their latest spin de force, Blendtec put an iPhone into their demon blender, and... well, you'll just have to see what happens for yourself. Don't try this at home, not that any sane person would.
