Carpet Event Horizon Edition

Top Story

  • So I ventured to vacuum New House, which is more than twice the size of Old House and carpeted throughout where Old House had hardwood floors in the living areas.

  • The FAA is ordering airlines to update faulty radar altimeters.  (Ars Technica)

    The argument has been going on for years, with cellular network operators swearing that their equipment couldn't affect aircraft instruments, and airlines swearing that it did.

    Turns out they're both right, because the instruments themselves are faulty.  The altimeters were designed decades ago when nothing else operated anywhere near that radio frequency, so the designers just didn't bother to filter out other signals.  And now that there are other signals, there are problems.

    The networks are happy with this decision.  The airlines not so much.

Disclaimer: Allow me to explain.  No, there is too much.  Allow me to sum up.
