Now the big question is , what are you going to do with 1.21GWatts 32GHz scope  :-//
Whack it good! Big scope, big bandwidth, BIG STICK!  :-+

Why don't the people why buy that equipment not tell those companies to at least not price gouge them on the accessories, especially after gouging everyone to astronomical levels for the scope itself?
They should at least sell the various cables, probes and other items of like $3-$5 each. or go with the standard pricing for high quality cables and do $1 per foot.

I was all ready to get upset, he had me going through some real dissonance there - "Is Dave making stuff up now for views?" "He has always been so honest, why would he do this?" "Did he really find that scope?" "Maybe I'm just jealous and can't accept it" "No way someone tosses a scope like that" "Ohhhhh riiiggghhhht - son of a bitch!"

I'd just toss it back in the dumpster. Couldn't possibly afford the probes.

He had me up until he said you can't put a scope like that on eBay.

You can put anything on eBay.

I think the world needs to know what happens if you go beyond that +/- 5V input rating. For science.

I would like for you to try and upgrade the thing. Image the HDD e.t.c. And jam in like a new Core i3-i7 in it, just to see how much snappier it'll go. Also an SSD. After all it's a PC with a bunch of incredibly expensive peripherals.

I just want to see how fast it'll boot, and how responsive it'll be. No matter what day it is :)

It looks extremely dangerous and may attack at any time, so we must deal with it  :-DD

Do you have a fish tank, or even a McDonald's hamburger and fries. I want to see live goldfish on top or Dave use it a lunch surface while working at the bench. Don't spill the rootbeer.

I left a suggestion to rent the scope out in a comment on the video, only to realize a few minutes later that the date would be April 1st in Australia...  :-DD

Good on ya, Dave, for the best April Fools I've seen in years.

Dave - Anytime you have the spare time you can join me for a dumpster dive up in the local business park in Sophia Antipolis - you seem to have the gift for it!  ;)

Now to the real question: how carefully did you place it in the dumpster before start of filming? I would say quite carefully...
