Really cool beans!!

I love the Honda commercial, it was true love at first sight when I first saw it on Spanish TV.

My favourite moment is when the battery gets connected and the stereo starts to play "Another one bites the dust".

I agree -- I love that one too, but what did you think about the "This Too Shall Pass" music video? I have to say that I don't listen to much modern music -- I'm sort of trapped in a time loop with Pink Floyd, Genesis, Led Zepplin, and so forth (plus I also like Church Organ Music :-)  ... but I have to say that this tune really sticks in my head...

@Max: "what did you think about the "This Too Shall Pass" music video?"

Some months ago, you recommended me the videoclip, but when I searched for it I saw the "music band version" official video, not the Rube-Goldberg one...

This is really cool!! Now I understand it all!!

Cute puppy videos

The Rube Goldberg/puppy video was a caliber higher (or two) than all of the other cute puppy videos out there. They have to be highly trained dogs, don't you think, to sit still in a wagon, catch a frisbee at the exact right moment, and more?

You could train me to do that with just a couple of beers :-)

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.
