i've also been discovering technology

Posted by dogpossum on June 11, 2004 1:28 AM in the category

so while i've been sick, i've also been discovering technology. i'm going to take The Squeeze's little laptop, memory stick and little digital camera to europe with me.

the mem stick is actually totally bitching.

i was considering buying a little tape recorder thingy for interviews, when The Squeeze remembered the mem stick. it has a microphone built in. and it ROCKS. you can fit 8 hours of voice on it. then you just insert it into the side of the lappy and upload. or you listen with headphones. utter simplicity.

hoorah for media convergence.

hoorah for digital thingies.

the mem stick is also ace for listening to music (like an ipod, except better because you can then upload the music to other computers) and for carrying around other computer files (like word documents), and then uploading other places. it is utterly excellent.

i'm not much of a walkman technology type of person - i'd rather read a book on the bus, keep plugged into the world around me. it's more interesting.

but i had a great big stack of interesting and thought-inspiring fun recording the sounds all around me on the bus.
it's so small and unobtrusive, you can do it without people noticing. then you just plug it into your computer and play with the file. no need to digitise from casettes or any of that rubbish.
aw yeah, baby.

it is SO good.
