Early electronic "learning" doohickey?

My friend from grade school was just profiled on Time.com. We met in 4th grade in 1979 over an electronic learning toy in class. It was white plastic, had a smoked plexiglass cover, spherical in shape but possibly on a pedestal. Help me identifiy it so I can remind him of it!

And you're listening to...

Name my radio show, which focuses on electronic music, centered around genres like: idm/braindance or whatever we call it these days, dub, trip-hop, chip music (as in... gameboy's and C64's), aleatoric, grime, dubstep, minimal, electrofunk, deep house and so forth. I would say the primary theme of the show is music that is interesting not only for doing something creative, but for doing it with newly available technology (for it's time). I also have a bias towards music that is rooted in Jazz or other improvisational traditions. Aside from what is decidely artsy-music, there is also a smattering dancable music and mashups deemed clever enough. There is no dance music of the foor-to-the-floor variety though, and it is not primarily a dance show. [more inside]

Seeking An Electronic Web Device

I am looking for a PDA or electronic device used primarily for accessing the web through WIFI. The bigger the screen the better. If possible I would want this device to be able to read JAVA. When traveling, I find my computer is a bit bulky to use quickly as a web device. Thanks

Power Switch for Electronics

I have been assembling some simple test equipment that involves mating an Omron digital readout to an Omron 0-5VDC pressure transducer. I have been seeing erratic zero fluctuation that appears to coincide with switching the power on and off. My background is electrical, not electronic. I suspect that there could be a voltage spike occurring when the on/off switch is used. The switch is a good quality industrial double pole rocker switch with internal illumination. I want to eliminate possible switch caused spikes as a variable in trying to figure out if anything external is causing this wandering zero. I am familiar with switches that will control spiking in an electrical circuit but not with more sensitive electronics. What type of switch do I look for in my (Digikey) catalog?

How can I organise all my electronic stuff in one place?

I'm looking for a box/cupboard/whatever that can store all my household electronic bits and bobs (ipods, moblie phones, PDA, digital camera etc) in one place without them, the cables and the accessories getting tangled up. I've thought those junk drawer organisers with lots of different sized compartments might work, but they're not big enough and I'd prefer something stand alone. Something that could accommodate a multi-plug socket and hide all the cables would be even better. Any ideas?

Apple and Sony economics lesson

I boght a 40GB Ipod back in the day when they were relatively new and, as such, I payed full whack. It broke down during warranty and I was issued with a new Ipod and now the new Ipod has broken down outside of warranty. I was gobsmacked to discover that Apple require ~£160 merely to look at the Ipod without guaranteeing the fixing of it. All this has led me to ask the question, are consumable electronics of this nature designed to have a short shelf life with the cost of fixture used to make you purchase the next generation? Am I wrong to feel agrieved at this? [more inside]

Interactive storytelling – good examples of both traditional and electronic?

There’s a long tradition of telling a story, say, around a campfire, or to a group of friends in a bar, and based on the feedback you get, changing the story to suit or entertain your audience. Today, the web gives everyone the ability to tell a story and receive feedback from a much wider audience than was previously possible. Two examples I can think of are the blogging phenomenon and Shelley Jackson’s hypertext writings. I’m looking for traditional/historical examples and sources as well as as well as online equivalents?

Why do electronic fund transfers take so long?

I'm a freelance web developer, and I've recently set up a PayPal business-level account to take payment from clients who prefer that method. But I'm growing more and more upset with the fact that it inevitably takes about a week from the day I get the notice of pending payment for the money to actually show up in my PayPal account, and another 4-5 days to get it out and into my bank account. What's the holdup? [more inside]
