@maxmaxfield "These are the sorts of real-world, in-depth tips and tricks that you simply cannot find on any other electronics website -- that's why so many people rely on EETimes to get the full story!"

Yes indeed - highly scientific results based on rigorous, indepth studies!

@kfield: My husband refers to them as "filthy little cabbages." Blasphemy!

The man needs to be taken down to the town square and flogged. Why did you marry such a loser in the first place?

@kfield: The girls I sat with pretty much hated me, because we always got the lime popsicles, which no one liked.

      It's tales like this that make you fully appreciate
      how uncaring the universe is.

I got caught once trying to "stick" a piece of french toast to the underside of the table with syrup

      I hope everyone makes a mental note to not
      serve you French toast should you come to visit

@davidashton  "I had my own pet hates when I was a kid but now I eat pretty much anything veggie-wise.  My biggest hate was cooked tomatoes, and I'm still not too fond of them."

When I was a kid, I hated to eat - period. It was quite problematic, especially away at camp, which had a policy that the table of girls who cleaned their plates first would get the first choice in popsicle flavors. I got caught once trying to "stick" a piece of french toast to the underside of the table with syrup in my lame efforts to clean my plate.

The girls I sat with pretty much hated me, because we always got the lime popsicles, which no one liked.

@kfield: It is just completely incomprehensible that anyone could hate a sprout.

The world can be a harsh place -- all we can do is hold on to our core beliefs in things like beer and bacon (and sprouts)

@maxmaxfield "Very interesting, but the increased number of times a term appears in a publication doesn't necessarily coerrolate to increased popularity -- it could be that more and more people are saying that they hate sprouts LOL"

@kfield: ...at least according to the NYTs own analysis of the number of times the term has appeared in the publication...

Very interesting, but the increased number of times a term appears in a publication doesn't necessarily coerrolate to increased popularity -- it could be that more and more people are saying that they hate sprouts LOL

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.
