It’s better than a Ferrari—why everybody needs a scope

You have probably used a scope sometime in your career, but you probably didn’t know there are a host of other things scopes can do. Matter of fact, the scope replaces many of the most important things in your daily life. The spring weather here in Beaverton, Oregon, has finally decided to come out so here’s some light-hearted reading as you enter the weekend.

The large hi-res display of your scope allows you to view analysis results to 18 decimal points plus doubles as a HDTV. In addition to that, it also has a DVD drive that allows you to view movies, and it has Ethernet connections to stream live video. Not only does the giant disk storage help with organizing waveforms and measurement results, you can also use it to store your video and music albums. Make sure you also get a portable, battery-operated scope that will phase out your iPod, iTouch, iPhone, and iLoveSoaringStockValues.
