UPDATE: Purchased an iRiver H120 jukebox/recorder.
For instance, on Audio Activism (a podcast about using podcasting and other online methods for political and social engagement) is a blog entry asking Does the new iPod record audio in stero?(sic)
Guess we’re all still wondering. The answer to that question will come soon enough. Well, actually, we know part of the answer but we still don’t know how the iPod can do “voice recordings” at 44.1kHz stereo or what the quality of those recordings might be. And let’s really hope that this feature isn’t crippled.
