Why Trust Your Memory

By: Michael Gravette

Is there anything more undependable than the average human memory?

The newspapers are full of stories about convicts getting released after years, or even decades, in prison. Sent there by eyewitnesses. Eyewitnesses that were absolutely positive that the defendant in the courtroom was the same person they'd seen doing the crime so many months or years before. (The only reason these guys are getting freed is because there's so much more scientific evidence than there used to be. Three CSI TV shows put this on display every week.)

These witnesses aren't making these mistakes because they're careless or not paying attention or lying (okay, some of them are). Instead, the witnesses are testifying to what they honestly believe they remembered.

But, their memories were wrong.

It turns out that the average human memory is not fixed as if it were carved in marble. It's more like a work in progress. The memory first goes in and is pretty good. It pretty well matches what the witness understood to be going on. But with subsequent information, the earlier memory sort of gets adjusted to match the more recent info.

And, don't even getting started with memories examined under hypnosis. This process can recover really good stuff or function as a sort of memory tilt-a-whirl or maybe both.

So, if you can't depend on your memory, what can you depend on?

The Telephone Recorder with LCD Information Center and Caller ID is the ultimate in memory enhancement. Now it's possible to perfectly document both sides of any telephone conversation with absolute clarity.

And, it's not just the voices that are recorded. In addition, the incoming and outgoing telephone numbers, the caller's name, and the time and date of each call are recorded onto the cassette.

It's even got a few extra features. The Telephone Recorder with LCD Information Center and Caller ID works with single line and multi-line telephones. It can record up to five hours of conversation on a single C-120 cassette. There's even a voice-activated recording feature so only conversation and not dead air is recorded.

Human memory is fallible and this Telephone Recorder is not,

This is a really sweet solution to an age old problem.

That's good for you if you need to summon help fast.

If you're prepared you'll never be surprised.
