How many times have you rushed into a team meeting or company conference, only to look around and realize that everyone BUT you has a notepad and a pen? I mean, of course no one is ever serious about actually taking any notes, but it still looks good and as though you're prepared, right? Well, say goodbye to the embarrassment and evil-eye from your boss! Roll up in there with your handy-dandy USB voice recorder and simply record the whole thing! Lay it on the desk and push it far enough away from you that everyone knows you're doing it like a champ. "Pens and paper? Psh. Way to be eco-HATEFUL, co-workers!" Then, when the meeting is over, simply plug it in and email the meeting to your boss. They will most likely enjoy hearing themselves talk, and because you gave them this wondrous joy, good tidings of ambrosia may be bestowed upon you come bonus time. Awesome.
