Really cool beans!!

I love the Honda commercial, it was true love at first sight when I first saw it on Spanish TV.

My favourite moment is when the battery gets connected and the stereo starts to play "Another one bites the dust".

I agree -- I love that one too, but what did you think about the "This Too Shall Pass" music video? I have to say that I don't listen to much modern music -- I'm sort of trapped in a time loop with Pink Floyd, Genesis, Led Zepplin, and so forth (plus I also like Church Organ Music :-)  ... but I have to say that this tune really sticks in my head...

@Max: "what did you think about the "This Too Shall Pass" music video?"

Some months ago, you recommended me the videoclip, but when I searched for it I saw the "music band version" official video, not the Rube-Goldberg one...

This is really cool!! Now I understand it all!!

Cute puppy videos

The Rube Goldberg/puppy video was a caliber higher (or two) than all of the other cute puppy videos out there. They have to be highly trained dogs, don't you think, to sit still in a wagon, catch a frisbee at the exact right moment, and more?

You could train me to do that with just a couple of beers :-)

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
