Audioholics Home Theater Forums – View Single Post – Speakers; When is good enough, enough

Pretty cool post about speaker cables… Well worth the read, but the gist of it is this:

After 5 tests, none could determine which was the Monster 1000 cable or the coat hanger wire. Further, when music was played through the coat hanger wire, we were asked if what we heard sounded good to us. All agreed that what was heard sounded excellent

So you see; spending $1000 on speaker cables is just pure bullshit.

Singularity, in code and binary! How cool is that? Holy cow! :)

I’ve been fascinated by Singularity from day #1 and this is another step towards my dream; Microsoft creates a super stable/secure/responsive OS, using the best tools and best practice we know now and implements a Super Powerful(tm) virtualization engine that enables us (users) to run every Windows version under the sun in a VM; thus enabling us to run every Window application ever written and then some! That sentence was ugly! I need to improve my writing skills… But the dream is there anyways. What would be even better is this; team up with one or more CPU manufacturers (Intel, IBM, AMD) and create an open and free architecture and build an open and free kernel on top of it. Then enable others to build great applications on top of that again. Microsoft could then sell their Windows Virtualization Engine to enable man+dog to run old Windows applications… Better yet; team up with Novel and make sure that the OS API is compatible with .Net/Mono so we can run most of our .Net application with out virtualization and we can develop applications in a managed 1 library, many languages world. How cool would that be?
