Don't talk to me about those #$%^% ads -- I find them to be a pain in the read end (and I work here :-) PS Thanks for the support :-)

Hey, don't read them if you don't like them. I personally look forward to these humorous breaks. My only complaint about the EE Times website is that every time I click on a blog or article, I get re-directed to an ad. Are there not enough ads on the site already?!?

Hi Frank -- Thanks for the "belief" vs. "believe" catch -- I just fixed it. I didn't copy the entire magazine or even a substantial part of it -- I was sitting on the sofa with my wife skimming through it and a couple of items made me either grin or laugh out loud and I thought I'd share them and make others happy also... ...just trying to spread a little happiness (sorry it didn't spread as far as you :-)

Perhaps they're already in the public domain? These anecdotes are of the type that have been floating around for years...

Is it still plagiarism if you state at the beginning of an article that everything that follows is straight out of another magazine? I realize you had to actually type the material in, and add the occasional "I thought this one was funny" or incorrectly change belief to believe, but does your boss give you credit for writing an article when this is all you do? I don't even want to ask what small room you were in when you read the Digest. Nothing in the article relates even remotely to technology, programming, engineering, design, or microcontrollers. There's a similar problem writing about Christmas in October. I see the word "blog." Apparently these are personal blogs.

It could be extremely sophisticated marketing -- after all we're still talking about it :-)

For years a local organic grocer had a sign out front giving the days they were open which had an interesting take on the word "every": "Open every day Closed Tuesdays"

An alternative direct approach to the question "Does this dress make me look fat?" is of course "No, its the fat that makes you look fat"

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
