Lol. No, I'm not being difficult. I'm a math/physics major studying to be a teacher. As such, when doing some activities, we move around and do stuff where normally someone would just take a notebook with them and jot down notes. I obviously would like to be able to do that AND still voice record. Especially when doing physics labs, a notebook doesn't stay stationary enough, and I was just looking for a no-frills usb microphone (maybe one that snakes, so it can stay in any position you put it in) while still being attached to the laptop.
