Goodbye Old Friend

NOT.  You sucked and I am thrilled to shove you into a drawer never to be used again.  This is  my Panasonic micro cassette transcriber, for those of you who never had the pleasure.  We've finally moved on to digital recording devices, or at least I have.  There are some in my office who are resisting  technology.  They prefer to listen to tapes that sound as if they were recorded from within the sunken remains of the Titanic.  Face it ladies, we're all going to be replaced by robots someday.  And when our robot overlords get here, wouldn't it be nice to be able to converse with them about current technology?    You think Zorax57#1029@6 wants to talk to you about typewriter ribbon?  No.  He'll blast you with his ray gun.  But if you say something like "I really like this new Olympus VN-702PC Voice Recorder with 2 GB of internal memory, how 'bout you?" he might just let you live.
