Excerpt: I am unique in how I started blogging. I started audio blogging or podcasting far before I started writing gadget reviews and posts here on Gear Diary. So, the first thing I always seem to look at when doing gadget reviews is a way to capture audio no matter where I go. My first mobile recorder of sorts was a Belkin Tune Talk, which is an adapter that plugged in to the bottom of an iPod, followed by the Griffin iTalk Pro and the Blue Mikey . All of these had issues.
Pros: Used a standard cable, sounds pretty good and is fairly easy to operate.
Cons: Apple got one thing right with their iPod interface and that was reducing the amount of buttons. It’s not difficult to use, but it feels like they could reduce the amount of buttons and still have the same amount of functions.
