Idea!

Now, I dont know if there are mobile phones that do this but would it not be nice if you could use your mobile phone as a PDA but using voice to record your memos instead of writing them down? I remember it was popular at one time to have small tape recorders with you and record ideas and dictates at the time it was convenient, I think it would be nice if your mobile phone could do that. I for one am allways forgetting things and even though I dont have a mobile at the moment I would like one where it would be easy for me to record short messages that I would keep formyself to remember. Perhaps the interface could be designed so the user would only have to push one button (a shortcut) to start recording and after recording a dialogue would appear that would ask you what you would like to do with that messages, store as a general message or put into a calander and make a reminder out of it ... or whatever. Im gonna patent the idea! NOT :-)

Or have a phone that reads your mind, beeps if there is girl passing by who is interested in you (the phone would be able to pick up her sex-related radiation towards you). Also tell you what to buy in the supermarket, when to wash your clothes, when to go to sleep, how to cook and even tell you a joke when you are feeling down...

Where can one get a hold of some sort of an equipment to grab and record ideas when they com, not to large and doesn't have to be the mobile phone?

Einar: well, if our phones could do that, who needs us then?? :-)

Sveinbjörn: Dictaphones are the ones that are most popular, see http://www.elko.is/subcategory.php?idcat=17&idsubcategory=160 for instance.
