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 typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Church of Apple congregants, please take no offense at this week's subject. No sacrilegious insult is intended (well,
maybe just a little). In the continuing saga of "Will
It Blend?" videos, the Blendtec Guy subjects a spanking new iPhone 4s to the rigors of a Blendtec Total
Blender blender (is there an echo in here?). Watch for yourself as normally mild-mannered Tom Dickson casually
ignores Siri's plea to spare his/her/its life, and without human emotion or compassion pushes the Smoothie button
on the blender. That's right, a split second after a final entreaty to not "commit a terrible error," the gruesome
disintegration ensues. What results is not a pretty sight - unless you happen to be trying to sell blenders that
have the power to pulverize almost anything that can be crammed into them.
