now to assist in gathering information on my wife's family tree, which has turned out to be immense (more of a forest than a tree). When carrying out such a project it is very useful to be able to store all the disparate information types in one place and be able to refer to
it easily. The Multidex is a great help here and is especially useful if you keep to one
method of annotating the documents that you have dropped into the Notebook. Once I am happy that a family member has been referenced correctly I add it into a family tree program called iFamily for Leopard (which I can also thoroughly recommend). As Nathan said in his
article, Notebook can seem to be daunting at first and pricey (I quibbled for sometime about
spending that amount) but once I was familiar with the software I found that it made organising the data collection and the associated cross-referencing very straightforward. The next project: my family tree and my first step will be to create a new notebook.

One minor problem I had with it, was the improper handling of aliases when linking to external files...

I cannot say enough about the concept of clipping. For every class I teach, I set up a notebook for that class. As I do research for external information to use for the class, I use clipping to save links to use for the class. It is better than creating a bunch of bookmarks.
The new Notebook 3.0 adds better options that turns Notebook into a scrapbook. Pasting pictures with annotations is a fantastic idea. I can even do this with PDFs.
I've converted a few people to the Macs when I showed them Notebook. It is well worth the price... in fact, it's worth TWICE the price!!

It's replacing my longtime Notepad app, Moosepad but it doesn't stop there. This app could potentially replace several apps because it's so versatile.

Can anyone give a good comparison of the two?
Why can't reviews make quick comparisons to other comparable apps? It looks like they don't know that there is another app out there that does basically the same thing.

The bundle is a GREAT deal, BTW

1. Do you use it as a replacement for Apple's iCal and AB or is it another application to with with and learn?
2. Does it sync with iCal and AB?
3. Does it sync with iPhone like iCal and AB?
Now that I switched to iPhone I miss the simple and thought out Palm Desktop interface.
I'd love something like Microsoft Entourage, but frankly I don't trust MS as being able to provide this king of application without the constant hassle of mediocre interface and extremely expensive upgrades.
