Subject: RE: A thought on the voice UI

I have pondered the same myself, but as each file will be very tiny it MUST
take up 4K of disk space due to sector allocation size. That's a LOT of
hdd space. One big file with the lot in is a better idea - but then
loading and playing the right chunk could be quite battery hungry and slow
with lots of hdd access.
