    more mikey crap:

    As promised, I printed out the names of all of the AnalogPlanet readers interested in accompanying me to the Third Man Pressing Plant Opening Party, tossed them in a hat and chose one without looking.

    I count 11 entries

    Nothing like being on the cutting edge of what's happening! It's actually quite funny when you think about it.

    snark from Mikey ?

    .
    Bose ran a full-page ad for its Wave radio a few weeks ago in the New York Times. The headline was "Proof That Great Ideas Get Heard." The company patted itself on the back for winning a technology award for the radio from "Forbes ASAP." The award cites the Wave as being one of 15 "world-changing" technological breakthroughs, on an equal footing with Bell's telephone, Edison's light bulb, and the invention of the CD.

    When I read that, my morning coffee went up my nose and back into the cup. I immediately applied for a patent on "The Endless Cup of Coffee"® (Pat. Pend.), then tried to find "Forbes ASAP" online to explain to someone there that, however good it might sound (in my opinion, not that good), the Wave is a f—ing radio and nothing more, that my parent's 1940s-era Stromberg-Carlson console also had an "acoustic labyrinth," and that if anyone deserved an award for inventing the high-performance tabletop radio, it was—all together now—the late genius Henry Kloss.

    I don't fault Bose for getting such an award—that's the fault of some knucklehead at "Forbes ASAP," whatever that might be or have been. (The latest—and only—edition of "Forbes ASAP" I could find online was dated "Fall 2002.") But I fault Amar Bose for not being embarrassed by such an absurd accolade, and for having the nerve to trumpet it in the pages of the Times. As Joseph Welch said to Joseph McCarthy on June 9, 1954, "Have you no sense of decency, sir?"

    There. I feel better now.

    "acoustic labyrinth,"
    You mean a folded transmission line?
