Years ago before cell phones, I had a small suction cup microphone that I used in conjunction with a small tape recorder for recording telephone conversations. I used this device to make my life easier. Fast forward to today. My wife is giving me rather intricate instructions to a family reunion destination. Intuitively, I opened the voice recorder on my 5 and I pushed the record button assuming I would be able to record those directions. Instead I got a message telling me the record function was disabled. Crap. Yet another law suit driven inconvenience that should not exist. I'm bummed. My iPhone has a capability to record the voice call that I'm on yet is prohibited from doing so. This is plain wrong on so many levels.
