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.

iPhone 1.1.4 Update Preps for SDK?

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released a 1.1.4 update for both the iPhone and iPod touch with absolutely no details on what changed, although users of the iPhone Atlas site are reporting improved signal strength in some cases, a fix to incorrectly ordered SMS messages, fixes to Bluetooth problems introduced in 1.1.3, and a fix for sent email disappearing into the ether.

Our suspicion is that the 1.1.4 update may also contain some foundation work to ready the iPhone and iPod touch for the upcoming software development kit announcement scheduled for 06-Mar-08. According to rumors reported by iLounge, we'll see only a beta of the SDK later this week, with the final release scheduled for Apple's World Wide Developer Conference later in 2008.
