|Jim Rhodes demonstrated the Open Office Productivity Suite, an open source software product that includes word processing, presentation, spreadsheet, drawing, mathematic function creator for documents, and database modules. Available free for download, this suite imports and exports common file formats from programs comprising the Microsoft Office suite, and other similar products. (Check with Jim or Paul at a meeting, if you don't have high speed internet access, and wish a copy of this program.)|
|Bill Walsh demonstrated a Sony ICD-SX25 digital voice recorder, along with another Sony model with more recording capacity. These units are very slim and light weight - a comparable current model listed on Sony's web site is 2.2 ounces with batteries. Bill said his devices cost in the range of $40 and $80, and the units have a wide array of features. These recorders include PC software for additional features and manipulations of the audio files. It was noted that this version of the software would not output MP3 files, but does export .wav files, which can be converted to MP3. Third party software is available to convert the native Sony digital audio file format directly to MP3. Sony's web site shows 15 products in its digital voice recorder line, ranging from $40 TO $400.|
