Tape No More
The Flashback is a solid-state sound recorder that is hardly bigger than four credit cards stacked on top of one another. It stores data on snap-in/snap-out solid-state memory cartridges called SoundClips. As with a more conventional tape recorder, you can save an entire interview or business meeting, but the Flashback also lets you add a note or message in the middle of a recording without overwriting the original data. SoundClips are PCMCIA-compatible, so you can transfer data to and from your computer. US$249.95, additional 30-minture SoundClips are $49.95, and Norris says it will have 60-, 90-, and 120-minute SoundClips soon. Norris Communications Corp./ +1(619)679-1504.
