Researcher, Dr. Murphy: "I just came up with a new theory -- if the probability for an event to occur is non-zero, and the probability for the event to occur stays non-zero forever, then given enough time, the event will happen. I'll roll a pair of 7's eventually."

Assistant: "Right...let's make it easy for the average guy...if anything can go wrong, it will. Like it just did!"

Assistant: Dude! I think that on that last BYTE, you BIT off more than you can chew. Anyway, the computer agrees with me and just said, "That doesn't compute!"

Ahem...the roll frequency appears to be much higher than the rolloff frequency.

The next time I buy a video backgammon game, I'm going to make double sure that dice are included.

OK, I want to develop a hand-held shoot-em-up game, and you want to do that boring old MP3 player-come-Blood Pressure monitor.  First one to get a double six wins!

This new product is going to make us a fortune!  Each die contains a MEMS gyro, motion-driven energy harvesting, and an IoT interface run by a smartphone app.  Look out, Vegas!

The fellow with his hands in his pockets is saying: "Now you realize that the opposite faces of a standard die always add to 7, so the one on the left is obviously a bogus die because you can see the 3 and 4 faces at the same time.  A trifling matter, and fussy of me, but we all have our little ways."


[The last bit about the trifling matter is a quote from Eeyore.]

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
