How would you like to pay an iPod price for a glorified FM recorder, with a total capacity based on SD card ownership? The Talkmaster II, by Sun Denshi corp Japan, will retail from $240 to $330, and can record radio broadcasts. A timer can be set to record up to 20 different programs. It’s not clear, but apparently the Talkmaster II comes in 3 capacities: 128MB, 512MB, and 1GB – we think this maybe dictated by the packaged SD card. Can play MP3/WMA/RVF (Sun Deshi’s propreitery format), is Window’s OS compatible only and sports a reported 20 hour battery life.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
