I am an Anglophile and have been all my life. Still, is it necessary to call a Brit or anyone by a title? Americans do not have nobility or royalty, de jure. Call him, or any other ennobled Brit, by his last name, or first, if you're familiar. As I said, I'm an Anglophile but we don't use fancy titles for Rothchilds and anyone in the Almanach de Gotha. No reason for an American to fawn over someone, even a cousin.

Appreciate these techonology development insights. But, . . ., one quarter column worth of reading material in each click? My 1920 x 1080 laptop screen can fit at least six of these slides in a screenful. I understand the need for sponsors and advertisements; but with all the formatted content on this page, inclidng the ad, occupy less than 50% of my screen, with two large white margins left open on either side. For reading convenience, please consider posting at least two of these slides on each page.

I completely agree with the comment about the irritating format. I frequently stop reading articles because I get turned off. In this case, I stopped after just a couple of slides.

Agree! These articles always prick my interest and then prick my bubble as I recognise the tedious "1 of 10" format.

I, on the other hand, enjoy clicking once for each word in the article. This is especially effective on slower browsers, where the densely-populated and expertly-coded EET web page takes torturous seconds to load and I stop reading the article, but am _sure_ to read the advertisements, v e r y s l o w l y.

I used to click "Print" when reading such multi-page articles as this.

Thanks for the suggestion. I missed the tip. Yes, clicking print takes you to an ad-free version with all the 10 slides on the same page. Some websites don't allow this, but works in EETimes.

at least there should be a quick jump-to list for the 10 items. also, on item 7 for servergy.com, I think they're using Freescale silicon, not sure why IBM was mentioned there.

I read the Cyclos white paper with great interest. The resonant concept is simple but it may be too simple. The white paper focuses heavily on clock tree power and skew - to be sure these are vitally important aspects of IC design - but so is jitter. In certain applications jitter can be a show-stopper and my engineering sense tells me that a parallel resonant tuned clock tree (being of high impedance) would be very susceptible to jitter generated from crosstalk.

Perhaps a drop-down menu (similar to those used in product reviews) that enable jumping to an arbitrary page would make the format less irritating.
