We need to talk about SPEAKERS: Sorry, 'audiophiles', only IT will break the sound barrier

CPE Bach

But how many square waves can dance on the head of a pin?

How practical is an electric car in London?

Hydrogen??????????????

No one seems to have considered Hydrogen Cycle engines and I wonder why, when this discourse has by definition to be carried out by folk who are interested in "new technology". It is already embryonic if you take a look at

(an advertisement admittedly) you can see that there seems to have been quite a bit of progress on that front.

DAMN you El Reg, CALL ME A BOFFIN, demands enraged boffin

CPE Bach

Best Boffin

James Stewart in "No Highway"(I think) working with Jack Hawkins as his boss at Farnborough and a wonderful scene in the aeroplane he has designed and in mid-Atlantic where Stewart persuades film star Marlene Dietrich to sit with her back to the wall on the floor of the men's lavatory in the event of the aeroplane being about to crash. Neville Shute wrote the novel and presages the tragic Yoke Uncle and Yoke Peter crashes due to metal fatigue. Sorry. Wittered :-)

Google uses disruptive 'poem' tech to announce new Chromebook availability

CPE Bach

Pottery Please

This work makes the great "Poet and Tragedian of Dundee, William Topaz McGonnagle" look quite good really.

'Beautiful railway bridge of the Silvery Tay,

I am very sorry to say

That your central girders were carried away

On the very last day of eighteen hundred and seventy nine

Which will be remembered for a very long time."

Orée outs wood-carved keyboard

CPE Bach

Wooden Keyboard

The problem is that it's French and that means that it has the AZERTY keyboard, rather than QWERTY. Having had to use these during various trips to Europe without that laptop I find them a right b****r to type on. Otherwise it looks a nice piece of kit, and the 'oils' from the finger tips will only enhance the wood over a long time....

Ten digital radios to suit all budgets

CPE Bach

Good piece and interesting. Sadly though, the budget band is more than somewhat skewed towards the well stuffed wallet, which takes the edge off the piece and responds to the headline disingenuously.
