Poll: Electronics Weekly Homepage - What Do You Think? - RF Cafe
RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media
platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around
August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and
Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe
Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great
posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads,
including responses to the original posts.

One of the websites I go to on
a daily basis to pick up technical headlines is
Electronics Weekly. A few days ago, they adopted
a new format on the homepage that uses a scrolling
timeline for presenting items. It's a unique method,
and I can't decide whether or not I really like
it. What do you think?

It's kind of a unique idea, but it seems like a
lot of trouble for news items. I'm not all that
concerned with a timeline, but it is a slick idea.
I don't think it's worth your time doing that on
RF Cafe IMO.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...
