The entry for evolution on Wikipedia, the Internet encyclopedia that anyone can edit, was altered 2,081 times by 68 editors between December 2001 and last October. IBM's Watson Research Center produced this image, which tracks the transformation. Each vertical line is a new version; each color is a different editor.The entry for evolution on Wikipedia, the Internet encyclopedia that anyone can edit, was altered 2,081 times by 68 editors between December 2001 and last October.

Here is North Korea at night. It is virtually dark compared to its nearest neighbors of South Korea and Japan. Now, if those light water nuclear reactors we gave them were being used to generate electricity instead of creating weapons-grade fuel, maybe the poor people of North Korea would have lights (and heat, and radios, and televisions, and ovens, and DVD players, and computers, and...Here is North Korea at night.

"The output impedance of the final gain stages is one hundredth that of the final gain stage in most power amplifiers. This provides extremely wide bandwidth and very high current capability. The Evolution One does not employ global negative feedback--the final gain stages use only 8 dB of local, nested negative feedback. This is one-five hundredth of the amount used in most solid-state power amplifiers. The result is an extraordinarily open, liquid, effortless sound."Need a new stereo?
