Failures in Electronics

I just saw this video about failures in electronics.

Your attitude toward failures in electronics may reflect a general attitude toward failure.

There is a line in this video that goes against what most of us have been taught:  “Celebrate failures because you will make a lot of them.”

The author of this video is not afraid of failure, is prepared for failure, knows how to deal with failure, embraces and celebrates failure.

She takes stuff apart and often that is not the plan of the manufacturer.  

Ever try and unscrew those red painted screws inside electronic devices? You can do it but these screws are manufactured to fail. The red screws are made out of cheap pot metal. So when you try and take apart a device with red screws, you are tempting fate and asking for failure.  Did you stop trying to unscrew those red screws?  I did.

Risking failure?  Even seeking out failure?

Speaking only for myself, I avoid failure.  I hate it.  I take it personally.  I spend a great deal of time anticipating and avoiding problems.

Are you like that?  It can be debilitating.  Sure you don’t fail much, but how many things don’t you even try?

But what if I were a different kind of person?  Like the author of this video.

What if I could look forward to failure?  How much more could I learn?

Listen carefully to this engineer/tinkerer who tells us how to proceed in her style.

The name of this video is 

Secret to Learning Electronics – Fail and Fail Often



What is your attitude toward failure?  Can you imagine becoming comfortable with failure?

BlackBerry Torch 9810

The BlackBerry Torch 9810 has the features you want at a price you can afford

A smartphone with a hard keyboard for e-mail, messaging, Twitter, etc. and a speedy processor, the Torch 9810 is a quantum leap in handheld computing.

The browser speed leaves the old 9800 browser in the dust!

Add to that 8GB of internal storage with ability to expand to 32GB and you’ve got a massive improvement over previous Blackberry phones.

Of course the 5 megapixel camera video recorder, both with “scene mode” control, give you even more power in your pocket.

Want to know about more features at your command?

You won’t really know until you see demos of the Torch 9810 almost live and in person. 🙂

Compatibility with websites, including sooth running Javascript, is a quantum leap over the previous-generation Blackberry.

All in a great looking slim design. 


Does the Torch 9810 offer the same screen “real estate” as a laptop computer?  

Of course not, it’s a smartphone!

That compact design lets you fit into your pocket a phone, a web browser, a camera, a video camera, and much, much more.

The 640 x 480 screen offers you the ability to simply tap to zoom in and navigate around a page.  Enlarged text is super crisp and readable.  Graphics adjust fluidly when you resize the view.

Bonus:  Lost?  The magnetic compass interfaces with a locator function to “point you in the right direction” to the places you want to go.

Games People Play

The Torch 9810 comes pre-loaded with three games, including a 3-D roller coaster game.

You also get music, YouTube, podcasts, and a handheld picture viewer.  Right in your pocket is a mini theatre to immediately present the “stars” of your movies, your friends, your family and you.

Of course, the Blackberry real hardware QWERTY keyboard is  a hallmark of the Blackberry experience and one of the reasons you remain a Blackberry user.

OK, you’ve seen the demos and it looks great.

What you really want is value for your hard-earned dollar.
