You know, someone is being a chump on the phone. Voice mail is obviously saved, but I need something to actually record both ends of a conversation. Voice activated would be teh cool. I'm not concerned about consent laws and what not; I'm looking for hardware recommendations for a recorder. Not a 007 looking thing that I hide under my overcoat collar. Maybe something that could be placed inline or plugged in the wall to record conversations. The ones I looked up looked like you had to hold them up to the phone or sumin' like that. Not trying to catch Osama or anything, just need to get some stuff on a tape that is audible. Hook me up.
