The Sony ICD-CX50 visual voice recorder has evolved way beyond a simple tape recorder. Use the 256MB Flash Memory to save sounds and pictures.
Voice recorders may have been sold to businessmen for use at meetings and note-taking, but I can see this device being used by regular people. Imagine walking around your house or apt and cateloging your stuff for insurance purposes! Take a picture of your microwave, stereo, whatever and say something about when it was bought and for how much, etc. Get into a fender bender? Take a picture of the crunched bumper and the idiot who hit you (and his licence plate) while you get his ‘excuse’ for not seeing where he was going. GUILTY!! Yes, indeed, this can be quite a useful device, and it’s not just for recording my bad accent!
