If they started handing out free Saddleback belts to folks sporting low-rider pants... I would be tempted to take a "low-rider stroll" around town myself :-)

I remember when I was a young lad it took forever to persuade my mom to let me wear denim jeans... ...older folks were always telling us how strange our style of dress was... I thought "I won't be like that when I grow up"... ...but I must admit that when I see a youngster today with his pants looking like they are just about to fall down and a 6 to 9-inch band of his undershorts showing, I hand help thinking to myself "OMG, you look like such a plonker!" :-)

Don't tell me -- email the folks at Saddleback and tell them what a wonderful (unpaid) job I'm doing... ...try to casually drop into the conversation that I really REALLY like their classic Messenger Bag (in dark coffee brown) [grin]

I think some municipalities in the U.S. have actually outlawed such lowrider pants. On the other hand, none of them are handing out free belts yet.

I had a few pairs of pants like that, and they were then referred to as "high-waters", probably because you could wade through a creek without getting them wet. If you were wearing a pair, other neighborhood kids might announce your arrival by saying, "Here come the floods!"

Max, take advice from your descendants; your pants are SUPPOSED to be drooping, crotch just above the knee, hem (what's left of it) in the mud, shorts ( in contrasting colour) clearly visible above the belt line. New belt indeed....

Hey, Max, maybe you should get a kickback from Saddleback for posting glowing comments about their belts! Bunches of us are probably thinking we do need a new belt, especially with the absolute crap coming from China these days. Quality products are getting harder and harder to find, and I always appreciate somebody letting me know where to find good stuff. BTW, don't assume that the stuff from China is less expensive; case in point, recently I went to the pet supply store to buy a new retractable dog leash. The Chinese one was $27.99, while the German one was $21.99! I bought the German one of course, and it's great. Caveat emptor!

I don't know what the Norwegian approach to energy consumption is, but if it is anything like Canada it is going to be pretty warm indoors- wear layers. As to warmth, I have one word- down.

I can't wait for you to see it in the real world -- when you receive it, please post a comment here saying what you think (What color did you go for?)

I'm going to need some warm clothing for my trip to Norway in Feb ... I have no idea what to expect (except that it's going to be #$%^ cold :-)

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
