The pen is mightier than the sword. We know that. But we don’t use a “pen” anymore since we still can’t write any faster. So the next big tool for all those writers, reporters, assistants and the like is a voice recorder, or a Dictaphone as known earlier. Sony has a new digital voice recorder that claims to record a whopping 20 hours of audio on a single charge. And when you hit those days where you just could not find time to charge it, simply plug it in for a mere 3 minutes and it will record for an hour. Just 48g in weight, this highly pocketable recorder sports a 4GB onboard storage and can accommodate more with a microSD card. So pay attention to your lectures in class and let Sony help you take down notes later.
