Tech Headlines Quiz for Week of March 13, 2023
RF Cafe Quiz #71

RF Engineering Quizzes - RF CafeAll RF Cafe Quizzes make great fodder for employment interviews for technicians or engineers - particularly those who are fresh out of school or are relatively new to the work world. Come to think of it, they would make equally excellent study material for the same persons who are going to be interviewed for a job. Bonne chance, Viel Glück, がんばろう, buena suerte, удачи, in bocca al lupo, 행운을 빕니다, ádh mór, בהצלחה, lykke til, 祝你好運. Well, you know what I mean: Good luck!

Click here for the complete list of RF Cafe Quizzes.

Note: Some material based on books have quoted passages.

This "Recent Tech Headlines Quiz" challenges your ability to recall items from the homepage "Electronics & Tech Headlines" column for the week of March 13, 2023. Except for the questions and answers which I modified (and added two more sets), every line of JavaScript code for this multiple-choice quiz was generated based on a query made to the ChatGPT engine from OpenAI. It also generated code for the PHP language, and will presumable do so for many other computer languages. Just for the heck of it, I had ChatGPT generate a version of the quiz code in the COBOL language. COBOL, if you are old enough to recall, the a primary mainframe computer language before the PC era, and was a big deal during the run-up to Y2K because legacy code could not handle the century change. Lots of gray-haired, retired COBOL programmers made big bucks helping coders port code to C++, Delphi, Linux, Unix, and other more modern languages - and modifying COBOL code to be able to make the 1999 to 2000 year change.

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...
