Things like bunny ears, knobs and ferrite rods are getting short and hats off to Mock for keeping things like this. Someone gave me a non-working 40" plasma TV not long ago and I was pretty sure it was just some bulging electrolytics were to blame. They were 680uF 400V I think, and short squat little rascals (as Max would say) to fit in under some framework. Do you think I could find anything comparable anywhere? Eventually I gave up and chucked it. As everyone does these days.... So I can understand why the repair shops are going under.

Great story Max. Sad to say, a TV repair shop (maybe the last one in Boston) just closed down. I wonder how well yours is doing?

In fact this was a VHF feed through a cable at the TV repair shop -- my next blog is going to pose the question as to how I get this working in my office ... look for my blog on Monday...

That is too funny. I thought that all over the air TV went digital a few years ago, but you have a nice picture on your little set. Do you still have some local stations broadcasting in analog or did you sneak a converter box in behind it? In any case, that's a very cool TV and would pair up quite well with the old Timex Sinclair 1000 that I have. I had thought it was broken, but it turns out the antenna input on my TV is non-functional, as is the wall bug for the Sinclair. The end result of that is that I don't really know if it's working or not. One of these days I'll figure it out and if it works, I'll send it off and you can see how retro-futuristic the combination looks.

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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
