Add Slides to Pear Note from Other Applications

If you have some slides in any application, and you'd like to add them to a Pear Note document, there's no need to save them out and then import them into Pear Note. Instead, you can send them directly to Pear Note through a PDF service. For instance, if you had slides in Keynote, just:

  1. Select Print within Keynote.
  2. Click the PDF button.
  3. Select Send PDF to Pear Note.

This can also be used to import other document types into Pear Note to take notes on them as well.

Big Discounts on Macs at Best Buy This Week

Send Article to a Friend

We don't generally write about individual retailers and their limited-time Mac deals, but this week's sale at U.S. chain Best Buy, offering $50-150 off purchases of Apple computer hardware, seemed worth sharing. The discounts range from $50 off a Mac mini to $150 off some MacBook models and the Mac Pro desktop.

Many U.S. retailers offer sharp discounts on Black Friday, the day after the American Thanksgiving holiday that's considered the start of the holiday shopping season. Best Buy's offer is taking a different approach; their discount is available through Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving.

The discounted prices are available on the Best Buy Web site as well as in Best Buy's stores that stock Apple hardware. (You can check availability at your local store online.) The company's "No interest for 18 months" credit promotion even applies.
