78RPM, yes the Focus on Fundamentals courses will be archived, similar to the Digi-Key CEC courses. You access the archive just like you access those longer courses: from the course series calendar page.

I agree with Ann. This is a good forum. And after a while you learn that this forum has a culture of civility and friendly discussion between participants.

Question for Ann: The live chat is great. Review is good, too.  Will this webinar be archived? How can we access it later for review?

Trenth, glad you fixed the text wrap problem.
This is an online audio-plus-PDF-presentation course, not a webinar. But both are still very popular formats, and that's especially true of Design News' online courses and webinars. Both couldn't be done without the internet, so I'm not sure what you meant there.
Both of these formats give everyone access to experts in certain subjects, and presentations that they would otherwise have to do a lot of traveling to be able to view. Design News' online courses and webinars have a chat function, and that means you get to see answers to questions others ask that you might not have thought of.
Check it out next week and see what you think.

Why, with the internet are we scheduling webinares? We can ask question via this format or emails.

 

Oh well, different strikes...

Thanks, Lou. That question will probably be on many people's minds.

Ann, that is one I will try to attend.  Not only is the material important, but the quality.  I talked to a guy whose distributor sold him on some metal bearings from a different supplier.  I think they were cheaper.  The quality was so bad that he had many failures and lost some customers.  I will be interested to see how quality issues are addressed.

In this new Design News feature, "How it Works," we’re starting off by examining the inner workings of the electronic cigarette. While e-cigarettes seemed like a gimmick just two or three years ago, they’re catching fire -- so to speak. Sales topped $1 billion last year and are set to hit $10 billion by 2017. Cigarette companies are fighting back by buying up e-cigarette manufacturers.
Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
