New Thing #138--Wireless Recording

I try really hard, but I'm not the most technologically proficient person you'll find.

For example, my cell phone is really basic--the kind they basically give away with a service plan. With rare exceptions (the alarm clock when I'm on vacation) I use the phone ONLY for making and receiving phone calls. My phone's wallpaper and ring tone are manufacturer-provided. The phone does have a camera, but most of the pictures I've taken are of the inside of my purse, because the shutter button gets hit as the purse moves around!

Today, however, I used the voice recorder on my cell phone.

I didn't even know that my phone had a recorder. I found it by pushing different buttons on the phone while I was killing time before work started. The recorder seemed pretty easy to use-push a button and it starts recording. Push another button and it stops.

I experimented with the recorder. I spoke into the microphone a couple of different times, and got pretty good results. Then I tried recording a snippet of a song from my car radio, and found out why they call it a voice recorder; the quality was terrible!

Next time I need a memory jogger, I won't pull out my stack of sticky notes and pen. I'll reach for my trusty cell phone and leave myself a VERBAL reminder!
