Papa's Got A Brand New Bag

Texas Instruments Buys National Semiconductor, Re-learning the Lesson of the Osborne 1 and an O-Scope That Will Run on Your iPhone

by Amelia Dalton

In my Fish Fry this week, I try to unravel the complexities of Texas Instruments' recent (planned) acquisition of National Semiconductor, celebrate the birthday of the world's oldest portable computer and check out a new o-scope coming to your iPhone or iPad.

If you like the idea of this new series, be sure to drop a comment in the box below. I appreciate all of your comments so far, and we will be working to enhance the Fish Fry each week - as long as you're watching.
