Hi All,

A long, long, time ago, before the word "digital" was invented, in the age of man, my parents used to have this little device that held a little casette tape(smaller than a standard casette tape) and could be used to record your voice. It came in very handy when driving, and , if it would have been waterproof it would also have come in handy when you get those crazy ideas in the shower.

Basically, it was a replacement for a notepad. Notepads don't work too well when driving ... or in the shower.

I could swear I've seen such recorders in stores almost recently, but the ones I saw didn't have any way to upload your brilliant epiphanies to your PC.

So ... I'm looking for a modern equivalent of a tape-recorder, only smaller, preferrably waterproof, and with some means of uploading stuff to your PC, like perhaps a USB port.

Anyone got any ideas?

As fozzie alluded to, most mp3 players have the ability to record your voice, along with other handy little features.
Some of these are barely bigger than the cassettes, you're talking about. :thumbsup:

Mine, which is no longer in production, records voice, records from any device that has an audio-out jack, and receives FM broadcasts.
It has 512MB of storage (any file type, like a flash drive), which can be supplemented with 512MB (max.) SD Memory cards.
It's as long as my index finger, and uses 1 AAA battery, which lasts 10hrs playing mp3's.
It also came with a FM transmitter that plugs into a car cigarette lighter, so you can listen to your jams over the car radio.
It costs me $34+shipping.

Isn't modern technology wonderful? :flowers:
