Micosoft VP of MS Office Kirk Koenigsbauer showed off a new OneNote today, with a demo of the program's added features, including the ability to add media and edit quickly.

Koenigsbauer's demo shows the digital note-taking program's abilities with text, media, inking, and more, according to the CNET Live Blog from today's press event.

The program features a new "radial menu" -- a circular toolbox of sorts designed to let users easily edit the note's content -- and an ability to easily grab content to bring into OneNote. This includes using a tablet camera to do a quick capture of an image and dropping it into a notebook.
