EH Holden. Loved it like a first-born child.
Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so.
You going to take your kids for steak tartare? Frog legs, oysters or escargots?

Philips and Olympus are the two dictation device makes you most frequently see in office situations in my experience, where professionals use these devices for transcription all day every day.
