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 typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Tributes to Steve Jobs by Jon Stewart & Stephen Colbert Videos for Engineers
one - make that two - final tributes to the Applemeister, and then let the world move on to the next iconic
genius. Here are clips from Comedy Central's Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert on the night after news of Steve
Jobs' death (succumbed to pancreatic cancer). As you might expect, there was a mix of humor and serious gratitude.
Both hosts have done numerous skits over the years where they make fun of Apple products, their users, and Jobs,
while also begging on-air for early samples of the next big thing. I'm a firm believer in the notion that nobody
is irreplaceable, at least on an all-of-humankind scale. Isaac Newton, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and Galileo
Galilei contributed mightily, but each was followed by another. It's time to let the venerable Mr. Jobs rest in
peace. Every person leaves his mark on the people around him, and the rare few leave a mark on the world.
will be the next tech wonder? It isn't likely to be this outstanding example of an OWS Fleabagger,
already leaving his personal mark on a NYPD police car. Not surprisingly, the Occupy Wall Street hippies, most of
whom cannot tell reporters why they're there, specifically excuse Steve Jobs from the evils of Big Business, even
though Apple has been cited numerous times for poor worker conditions in overseas factories. It proves another old
notion about ignorance being bliss.
