NO RATINGS
Linh, that was a great argument against using your smartphone as a digital wallet -- but not such a great argument against using Facebook.

NO RATINGS
"Another reason not to join Facebook..." and yet, people are signing up to Facebook in droves around the world, every day. I'm sorry, but respectfully, I feel this is pure fear mongering, and in a world where social media is more and more important to one's career, advice about NOT signing up to facebook is not only a little old-school, but also rather unhelpful in my opinion. You may as well tell people not to drive because it's dangerous. Or not to pay with a credit card in restaurants, because a waiter could steal their card number. Or not register to any online site, or fill out any survey because it facilitates identity theft. Identity theft IS a real problem, I'll grant you that.... but instead of limiting yourself online, just take sensible steps to protect yourself and use with caution. Don't feel the urge to share your phone number, date of birth, mother's maiden name or city of birth. Or, use different security questions when you sign up for things.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
