Among purists, the trickery has inspired an identity crisis and cut to the heart of American auto legend. The "aural experience" of a car, they argue, is an intangible that's just as priceless as what's revving under the hood. "For a car guy, it's literally music to hear that thing rumble," says Mike Rhynard, "It's a mind-trick. It's something it's not. And no one wants to be deceived." Other drivers ask if it really matters if the sound is fake? A driver who didn't know the difference might enjoy the thrum and thunder of it nonetheless. Is taking the best part of an eight-cylinder rev and cloaking a better engine with it really, for carmakers, so wrong? "It may be a necessary evil in the eyes of Ford," says Andrew Hard, "but it's sad to think that an iconic muscle car like the Mustang, a car famous for its bellowing, guttural soundtrack, has to fake its engine noise in 2015. Welcome to the future."
The UK isn't 240V, it is 230V. As previous commenters have stated, the tolerances are different in the UK and the EU, but they are all based around 230V now.
Why would you keep a 486 CPU on its own - surely the whole system would be more use if you went to the trouble of keeping the rest of the documentation?
Somehow I think the capture technology is more important for that use case than the display technology...
Most people don't realise that the Kronos is just a dual core Atom PC either (and an old one at that) - pretty incredible when you compare it to the CPU hog VST market.
So given the choice of a car coming towards you and a cyclist in your direction you'd crash into the cyclist?
Perhaps you missed it, but clearly $3,300 isn't enough - http://slashdot.org/story/13/10/17/2337204/british-nhs-may-soon-no-longer-offer-free-care. Partly because much of the NHS is already stealth privatised no doubt though.
Citing the Daily Mail? Really?
