This is the meaning of "interested party" that means that Google had a stake in the decision, not merely that it showed some desire to be considered.
I grew up with analogs and have no problem using them now. In my experience, the best part of having a digital 'scope is that it's small and light.
I can second that. I've got a 1012B and I couldn't be happier. It's got hard buttons and knobs for the important stuff, and the menus are easy to use. Plus it's portable if I need to use it in the field (rare).
Given Palm's patent portfolio, this outcome was probably one of the better ones. I can only imagine the stupid patent lawsuits from Apple with the extra ammunition.
The difference could be between the in-camera noise reduction algorithms, which is still a valid and useful comparison, or because the testing is almost certainly subjective here, normal variation. I'd contact them about it; they've been receptive to my comments in the past.
The IBM PC was more powerful than other systems at the time, and the 8088 was probably the highest performance/$ processor available, and had a better ISA than the 6800 series CPUs, IMNSHO. IBM didn't force anyone to buy PCs; they caught on because they were more powerful and reasonably priced. The 68000 was far too expensive at the time, and the inexpensive systems using it, the Macintosh, Amiga, and Atari ST, didn't arrive for another 4 years. By this time, the compelling reason to buy a PC or clone was for the huge software library.
That's what we've been asking SCO for the past 7 years.
So, for the same resistance, the heat is proportional to the square of the current.
As a whole bunch of posts above you confirm, Cisco definitely uses QNX in their largest routers. They also use FPGAs in switches and routers, in addition to ASICs I'm sure. High-end FPGAs certainly are convenient for what Cisco wants to do, especially with the ability to reconfigure them on the fly into an arbitrary special-purpose packet filtering/routing engine.
Yeah, Palm just has to make the Pre look like an iPod to iTunes. Eventually Apple may run out of things to use to differentiate the Pre from a "real" iPod without breaking real iPods.
