I seem to recall the discussion of decent quality portable digital
(audio) recorders on this list a year or three back.
Can I get suggestions from out there for something pocket sized that
costs up to $250 (or so) that I can use at those moments when I am
saying to myself "I wish I had something to record that (birdcalls,
subway musicians, environmental sounds, etc. - I'm not talking super
hi-fidelity concert recording) with".
