Well, I certainly hope it works for me as I just purchased one.  I'll let
all know how it goes.

After readng Larry's podcast on this I was seriously thinking of buying one
but after checking with the reviews on the USA Amazon site (UK Amazon does
not deal in it) I amhaving second thoughts.  I just thought I would share
this in case anybody else is thinking of buying.  I would be interested to
see if those of you who already have one of these can confirm or denay these

1. The WMA fprmat seemsed t be problematic both because you have to convert
from this to do most anything with the recording and because it is a low
quality format except at the highest quality setting.

2.  Poor interal microphone in that it picks up every handling action.

3. The most worrying issue was one reviewer who filled up the memory and so
froze the firmware with no way out.
