Cheap microphones on ebay aren’t always real… well I knew that already, but the interesting thing is the comparison process and how good the knock offs were at reproducing the look of the microphone, but not the audio. The side-by-side comparison is especially useful.
It funny, and seems obvious, but colleges don’t like cuts to adult education. I guess we’re really serious about getting out of the recession we’re in, so we should cut one of the best ways to get people skilled-up and into new positions, which in turn will cycle new buying potential into the system. I’m no great capitalist, but it seems so self-evident.
