An almost infinite scale.

Looking at Google data centres for one of my uni modules and my mind is BLOWN. The physical scale of technology blows my mind. For my final year project I’m looking at the modelling of nanoscale electronic devices, this involves researching how teeny tiny things are now getting to be. 135 more words

Letters to WTF: why can't tubes run on 12V like transistors?

This is a good question and a topic that rears its head pretty regularly in DIY. If we don’t have to work with 300V, we’d all prefer not to; however, there’s a reason that we brave high voltage in our quest for tube audio. 376 more words
