Merry Christmas to all, and to all…
The Celestial Compass iPhone app would have trouble near a Pole too. The ancients developed an amazingly effective system for delineating positions on the earth’s surface, but all related systems tend to go wacko when you’re in that tiny area where a foot step can span many degrees of longitude. Big thanks to Dave Blazek for letting me use his cartoon (you can see more here), and for more holiday grins…
EchoPilot’s elaborate Christmas Card (open the text image for detail) is full of chuckles, as always…and how how about Airmar’s Happy Holidays card below? Hard as it is to design good marine electronics, it may be even harder to come up with a marine electronics themed season’s greetings! Has anyone seen other notable electronics-related holiday good wishes? As for me, I’m glad to be at home in Maine this year, not Brooklyn, and I’m wishing you all stockings full of transducers and other goodies, and lots of love and light.
Happy holidays, who’s the geek now?
