Also don't forget that most English speakers don't understand "K7". It just reads like "Kay-Seven", to them. (K7=Cassette, as in the tape format)

EDIT: And I do respect many people who have worked or do still work for Philips, particularly some of the IC designers.

Don't necessarily respect any organization, Bcarso. Everybody makes mistakes. By the way, it was some Swedish group that did the tests, I'm pretty sure.

Thanks, Pano. Looks like I' got revenge against the invading use of English acronyms without wanting-it.

I still can't figure patented IP getting into standards, seems like stealing to me.

Me too, had enough last week in SF. If you remember "A Christmas Story" you might appriciate that I found a duck recipe from 1943 that I used Christmas eve. Tonight we're having the turkey instead.

Happy New Year to all.

Hard to go wrong with a turkey but tonight I will cook some fresh venison.
I bet your duck is very good it if it is anything like the quality your circuits.
