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.
This collection of video and a few audio files represents files that have been featured on the RF Cafe homepage. Every week or so a new file is added that should be of interest to RF Cafe visitors.
Please send me an e-mail if you have a good subject. Note: "Videos for Engineers" formerly went by the name "Cool Videos."
