Here's two examples from real life:

1. You are at a concert and record the whole event. In fact your start the
recording way before the concert not to miss the beginning and leave it
running all the time until the end. This might give you a 300 MB file and you probably
want to forward to check on the results right after the end.

2. You hate your local radio stations so to avoid it you connect your jukebox to cable
or satellite radio and press record when you come back from work. The next morning you
press stop and have a 500 MB file. Now you unplug the jukebox, put it into the car and
play your favorite station. You can skip any song, newsbreak or commercial you don't like.
And if they play something really good (like a surprise live set) you can cut it out of the big
file before you delete the rest.

#2 is something I do every week and the main reason why I enjoy Rockbox
so much: It records full days without crashing and has a user defined fast
forwarding speed that is flexible enough to reach any point in a gigabyte file within
a reasonable amount of time.

Martin
