So this begins one in a series of ranty titles that have no real connection to the text of the blog. This entry is not about bloggers who think they have more influence than they actually do with vastly huge cable or cell phone companies. No. It is about.....can you guess?....mechanical gyros. Can we phase those out and go with MEMs based gyros from now on? Mechanical, plastic, labor intensive (and thus cheaper) gyros are less accurate, have more drift and are less sturdy than their MEMs counterpart. That's all I have to say about that. That said, they're probably wicked expensive or something. I know laser mechanical ones certainly are.
I welcome anyone who would like to rant about actual issues raised in the title in the comments. I've probably done it myself, for that matter.
