5G Meets 50,000 Fans at Super Bowl 2025

Recently, I was basking in my comfy command chair relishing the adverts on television. They’re really the only thing worth watching since the Gilmore Girls ended (my wife, Gina the Gorgeous, and I just finished watching the re-runs… again) and while one is waiting for the next season of Doctor Who starring Jodie Whittaker to launch in 2020.

One of these adverts showed a bunch of people … Read More → "5G Meets 50,000 Fans at Super Bowl 2025"

ARM Dips Toe Into Configurability Pool

“My ghast was flabbered.” – Anthony Grayling

User-configurable microprocessors are a subject near and dear to me, so I was excited to hear that ARM, a company renowned for its iron-fisted control over its CPU architecture, was loosening its grip and allowing users to create their own custom instructions. Could it be? Had the company really joined the ranks of the user-configurable army … Read More → "ARM Dips Toe Into Configurability Pool"

It’s ALive!

Coming to you from AltiumLive 2019, this week’s podcast is all about hacking, PCB design, and how sharing information can inspire innovation big and small. AltiumLive 2019 keynote speaker Joe Grand (Grand Idea Studio/L0pht Heavy Industries) and I discuss how hacking and engineering can collide in today’s EE ecosystem. We also discuss the origins of the legendary hacking group L0pht Heavy Industries and Joe shares a … Read More → "It’s ALive!"

Hi Crusty, now you mention it, I do recall you mentioning that you started out as a Medical Laboratory Technologist -- it's interesting how one's path meanders along as we amble through our careers -- I started out as an engineer, and my dear old mom still can't believe that ...

I must admit that I watch too much science fiction -- as a result, I bounce around being scared of a zombie apocalypse, a robot/AI apocalypse, a super volcano, a giant asteroid strike, a pandemic, and... the list goes on LOL

On the one hand I agree with you that the vast amount of "stuff" younger folks don't know is scary -- but then I think back to how little I knew when I was younger. Re jobs, the industrial revolution took away the jobs of a vast number of agricultural ...

Even in the case of a non-thinking machine like an airplane or a ship, humans can become emotionally entangled with them. There are already cases where older people have been exposed to simple robots that can play games and answer questions, and the older folks become emotionally attached and saddened ...

I agree -- technology has always been a multi-edged sword -- most scientists and engineers just bounce along thinking of all the wonderful things their inventions and creations are capable of, and before you know it some dingbat is using it for something horrible -- and then there are the ...

[From the last episode: We looked at subroutines in computer programs.] We saw a couple weeks ago that some memories are big, but slow (flash memory). Others are fast, but not so big '€“ and they'€™re power-hungry to boot (SRAM). This sets up an interesting problem. When ...
