    I've been playing around with my work laptop running XP, and used the MS stickies - they allow voice recordings. This is a good feature, allows me to make quick spoken notes.

    How can we make similiar notes on the Mac?

    I know GarageBand will allow me to record from the internal microphone, but is there anything quicker?

    Further- is there a quick and easy way to make video notes on a Mac with an iSight?

    Any advice / experience will be appreciated! Thanks!

    Third party software on the PC? I'm not aware of any Microsoft Sticky note application.

    If anyone eles can offer script or other apps to make quick notes in an audible or video fashion- I'm interested!

    I forgot to mention Voice Notes ($6)
    It's a dashboard widget that lets you record, store, and listen to audio recordings.

    Most of the major notetaking apps, of which there are many (all of which are superior to equivalent Windows programs) -- will do this. My favorite by far is Soho Notes (formerly Stickybrain, but it bears almost no resemblance). Trust me, it rocks :D

    Using Audio Recorder, Play Sound and AppleScript, I made my own Audio note taker/maker app.
    It's called "Audio Notes". Basically, I just used AppleScript to tie Audio Recorder and Play Sound together.

    Get it here.

    You've gotten quite a few responses so far, but I thought I'd mention OmniOutliner as well. You can record voice notes to go along with your written notes/lists, similar to the MS Word notebook functionality.
