This exchange followed, yielding some useful information on the
technology of recording devices during the war:

        Now you have done it.  You see, they say there is a pre-war tape of some
German speech whose identity they suspect but have no idea of who it is.

A perfect example of the ignorance of the Evil Little Huber Babies.
I'm quoting here from a reference work called _World of Invention_
(Gale Research, Detroit, 1994, p.394):

"The invention of magnetic recording tape is variously attributed to
J.A. O'Neill, who is said to have created a paper version in 1927 in
the United States, and the German engineer Fritz Pfleumer, who in 1928
developed a tape made by bonding a thin coating of oxide to strips of
either paper or film.  It was Pfleumer who filed the first audiotape
patent in 1929...

In 1935, the German electronics firm AEG produced a prototype of a 
record/playback machine, called a magnetophon, based on Pfleumer's
ideas but using plastic tape.  BASF went on to refine the tape AEG
had used, presenting the first usable magnetic tape at the Berlin
Fair in 1935.  The first public tape recording was made by the
London Philharmonic Orchestra at the BASF factory in Ludwigshafen,
Germany, in 1936."

As for plastics:  the first one's were developed in 1836.

Will this teach the Huber Babies and their ideological compatriots
the value of basic research?  Stay tuned, boys and girls...but don't
hold your collective breath.
