Pocket-size recorder (Apr, 1971)

Wow, when you put that tape next to an incredibly gigantic coin, it makes it seem smaller!

Pocket-size recorder

Drop a minicassette into this miniature, 10-ounce dictating machine, and put 30 minutes of your thoughts on tape. That, says Dictaphone Corp., is 3,000 words or 30 average business letters. Record, playback, rewind, and volume controls are under your thumb. The Dictaphone 10 sells for under $100.

    That’s a Liberty Dollar (aka Peace Dollar), which measures 1.5 inches (38mm) in diameter.

    A mini-cassette is about 34x55mm.

    A secretary goes into her bosses office and says, “Can I use your Dictaphone?”, he relpys, “No, use your finger like everyone else!” (Sorry, its the only dictaphone joke I know.)

    We’re still using one of these puppies in our office. The boss isn’t ready for digital yet, and probably won’t be until the replacement for digital comes out.

    What happens when he can’t buy tapes any more?
