I just had lunch with and interviewed Manan Trivedi, who is a candidate for Congress from the 6th district of Pennsylvania. I bought a new recorder to bring me into the digital age, and it worked great. However, it saves in WMA, and my MacBook won’t read it. I have a PC around here somewhere, so I can do a conversion there and get my files that way, but I am trying to limit the pain-in-the-ass factor here. Plus, I don’t want to have to do that everytime I use my new recorder. The advice I got by browsing Google told me I had to upgrade to QuickTime Pro, but that costs money. So, what’s the deal? Have they gamed this so I have to buy something to listen to my files, or is there a free way to get this done?
