Because if I get a job I am in contention for, I would be writing
speeches and handling executive communications chores for a large
corporation. I would have to record speeches by its Chairman and by
its President/CEO, which would be retained for an indefinite period.

A mini-disk is a laser-recorded medium that is very convenient to
carry--and this would be done in many settings on several continents
in the course of a year. In addition, I would want a lossless format
for the original recording, and not a compressed one such as MP3.
While MP3 is generally more than adequate for speech, I prefer to work
with as much fidelity as I can get for the original recording.

With a reasonably good ripping and editing program on a laptop, I
could extract pertinent passages from such a speech for press use
immediately, if needed.

This is obviously a different scenario than taking meeting notes. For
note-taking, once my Sony minicassette unit gives up the ghost, I'll
probably go to an MP3 recorder as well. Unfortunately, the worst part
of these is normally the built-in microphone. That is why my present
microcassette unit is the Sony M-100MC, designed specifically for
lectures and meetings.
