I totally agree on what you all have said. If I were still writing about
other people's technology I would definitely record the interviews
with audio and/or video. I found OneNote to be the best at capturing audio
and notes in sync, so I never had to write down the time stamps. The audio
automatically scrubbed to right place when I touched a specific point in my
notes.

The problem for me is once you have all the recordings, how do you catalog
and archive them so you can work with them later.

Notability on the iPad has incorporated a similar feature, but a recent
experience has made me lose confidence in the program's ability to keep my
notes organized.

Evernote has a really good set of organizational tools, but I wish it had a
better audio/note taking sync, and incorporated handwriting natively into
its toolset.
