    That's a good backup I always use in case the recorder craps out...But for some reason I can't get it to download to my computer...maybe that works with Macs :)

    Made me laugh, as this Wiki entry also refers you to Brown Note Records:

    I swear by the Olympus DS-2. Incredible machine - though expensive - and the software is even better (but what would I know? I lost mine.)

    I absolutely hate that shit. I had a damned 45-minute meeting. I tried to be smart and write down the time for the quote I wanted to pull later. But the thing counts down the time backward as it plays, which left me trying to do math in my head while holding down a damned button for four minutes. Then my finger accidentally presses too hard on the pause, which stops the recording completely.

    My wife bought me the Radio Shack device for Christmas. I plugged it into my recorder and my phone. But I couldn't hear the sound on my phone. I fixed that by plugging in some earphones. But then I still couldn't talk to the person on the other end of the line. My understanding is that I need earphones with the mic.

    I have an Olympus which can then plug right into a USB jack and thus get the audio on to my computer. Olympus (I think) makes another one (as I'm sure there are other models) with USB plugs so you can upload the info. Of course, if you want to edit it or whatever, you'll need something like Adobe Audition.

    Perhaps I'm missing something, but I really can't imagine why I'd want to save many interviews on my computer.

    I do it for times when the coaches will start going off about "next season this, next season that, this is what workouts will be like in August," etc. and I just write down "1115-1448 - Offseason workouts." Then I can go back and listen to the file when August rolls around.
