Flashback! is an innovative personal recorder that records sound with the help of PCMCIA cards, a standard storage medium in the computer industry, rather than the magnetic tape used by other hand-held recorders.
Because there's no motor and no read/write heads, the unit should be impervious to characteristic failures like tape jams. It's also easy to search for specific parts of the recording without "rewinding," since all information is accessible almost instantly.
To top it off, you can save and delete any part of the recording (even insert recordings between two other segments) and information is transferable to and from computers that support PCMCIA.
The suggested retail price for the Flashback! recorder is $199.95, and the package will include a half-hour PCMCIA card, which the company dubs SoundClip (extra cards cost $69.95). Call Norris Communications Corporation at (619) 697-1504 for more information.
