Pear Note: Note taking utility for Mac

Pear Note from Useful Fruit Software is a powerful note-taking tool for Mac OS X. The application integrates text notes with audio and video you can record from interview sessions, meetings, etc.

The notes are time-marked to the video and slides that are being viewed during the recording, so you can click text from your notes, and the app will jump to that time in the recording so you can watch the video or see the slide that went with the note. While you're playing back, text notes are highlighted as you follow along with audio/video.

This is a pretty amazing looking tool to supplement your user research toolbox, and fills a well defined need for researchers, but is just as useful for meetings, conference calls, remote design reviews, and classes.
