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.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

MSI P65

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

Lolita Wang

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Christopher Low

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
