A friend of mine had one of these – I loved it especially as you could plug it directly into your laptop after doing a recording – how neat is that!

If you prefer to speak and record your thoughts after a meeting, what a great way of doing this, easy to plug into your laptop, which automatically uploads to your desktop, so you can send onto your Virtual PA to type up later.
