Maxiworks Voice E-Mail

One feature of the software is that it is portable - the program and messages are all stored on the second floppy. In fact, it's hard to see why the first disk is necessary as Voice E-Mail (second disk) will run on any computer without installation (first disk). One cute feature is a message that appears upon closing the program, reminding you to remove the disk.

To minimise download and storage overheads, voice messages will only record for 45 seconds, after which the program will abruptly stop recording. While there is a visual cue of how many seconds are left, an audio cue at the end of recording time would also have been helpful. Once the message has been recorded, it is compressed into a small file; the second floppy can hold up to 180 text messages and three minutes of voice. Voice E-Mail can also back up and selectively download messages to further conserve space.

The clarity of sound is adequate - though nothing you would want to play on a stereo -- but you wouldn't be doing that with e-mail anyway. Since we are dealing with voice only, the quality of sound (and thus file size) can be quite low and still perfectly understandable.

The program comes with an address book and a Web browser function, though the latter only opens the default browser with whatever address has been typed in the window. The address book stores contacts by groups, which is handy, but you can't drag and drop items from the address book to an e-mail message. You get what you pay for.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
