  • I think the author was alluding to the functionality of the devices available in Radio Shack, not the devices themselves.

  • Interesting post, i liked it, thanks for sharing.

  • Mankind has truly lost their ability to think, reason, and figure things out. They just believe what ever they are told to believe. For those that can still think and reason, man never landed on the moon, dinosaurs never existed, and earth is not a planet.

  • Facts or not, great stuff!
