Your freshman needs to take notes in class, but at the rate they have to pay attention, and depending on how awake they are, they might miss some key points from the instructor.
The SONY ICD-SX712 is a fully digital, 2GB memory voice recorder with sensitive stereo microphones and can record lectures at 320Kbps in native MP3 format for transfer to iPods and other music players, so your collegiate will miss absolutely nothing.
The product can also be purchased with the optional Dragon Naturally Speaking voice-to-print software which will automatically transrcibe the spoken lectures to printed notes.
Look, you sent your kid off to college, and once they are out of your prying eyes, chances are they are going to experiment.
They're going to drink alcohol, they might experiment with recreational drugs, and they are also going to ... Have sex.
If they're going to "do it" they might as well know how to do it properly. ZDNet's own Violet Blue, who is a world renowned sex educator has built up a tremendous tome of information with her Open Source Sex Ed book which is based on transcripts from years of her popular podcasts on iTunes.
Among the vast array of subjects covered, it includes safe sex practices, which students of every age should be conscientous of.
The ebook is downloadable as a ZIP file, which contains .PDF, .TXT and .PDB formats that can be read on many popular e-reader devices such as the Kindle and the iPad.
Mobile Edge is one of the world leaders in travel bags and backpacks for the jet-set. Their Scanfast is their best-selling backpack, and now it's even better.
Like the previous ScanFast, the current model is of a butterfly-type design that permits the student's laptop computer (up to 17" wide) to be kept in a pouch in a separate compartment which can be unfolded at security checkpoints, thus allowing it to be scanned directly in the bag using the TSA's security equipment without being removed.
When your student comes home for the holidays and needs to fly back to school, they'll appreciate it. And while at school, they'll appreciate the bag's functional design and ample storage space for all of their gadgets, books and papers.
The ScanFast 2.0 is also the only travel bag in the industry that is constructed out of DuPont's sustainable and eco-friendly Sorona polymer fiber material based on corn, so your student can make a "green" statement as well while using it.
