Oh course. There has been a long tradition at least in past electronic magazines of the past era to publish a realistic sounding story that was not so outlandish as to be totally unbelievable, but if true a real zinger of a story. This tradition has spread to the internet as magazines are pretty much a thing of the past.

My favourite was the mercury filled speaker cables!
I should try and dig that one out of the archives...

Glad it's just an April fools. The dumpster dive videos would have become very boring :)

With Sydney house prices at bargain basement prices how could Dave not afford that?    ;)  ;)  ;)

For the benefit of our overseas visitors, this is mostly sarcasm. Sydney's house prices are amongst the most expensive in the world, relative to local income.

posting the video on the 31st of March makes this an ultimate fail.  :palm: :palm: :palm:

Go learn some geography  :palm:

ie time zones

FYI you can set your forum "clock" under your profile to be the same time as Dave's.  I found this to be more useful (maybe not fall for a date fool) than my own local time, so I just re-set mine to Sidney time.

I live in Sydney, furthermore, I live within 20 minutes driving distance of the old Altium building in the video.

At the time of posting the video, Sydney was still in AEDT so UTC+11 which is only beaten by a few other countries, with the highest being UTC+14. So, posting this on the 31st of March UTC+11, it would have been live on the 30th of March in other countries.

Why do you say for me to go and learn geography?

It was already past midnight in Kiritimati when I posted, way past in fact. I'm very careful about such things because I know the anal retentives like to complain about it.
Kiritimati is currently 4 hours ahead of Sydney (3 back when we had DS)

This Forum is global.  Date and time issues between members is not a mystery.

The original post was made at a time when the date was April 1, somewhere on the planet, which would seem to be valid for a global forum.



Just my 2 cents.

Yes I agree, with a global audience you have to start somewhere.

I don't know if I'm uniquely prescient, but around the last week in March I was strongly expecting April to occur soon.  So when I saw unlikely-looking statements I definitely considered the possibility of April fool jokes.  Anyone who didn't was proper fooled, and shouldn't complain!

Dave is about 25km (give or take) from the Sydney CBD.

Does it really matter when it was posted with respect to your local timezone?  Friday was the 1st here in the UK, so it appeared a few days before, but you know that somewhere it will already be the 1st!  :palm:

It wasn't days before, just hours - and how many hours depended on where in the world you are.  From minus a couple (for those east of NZ) to plus 20 or so for Hawaii.

(It's late here - so apologies for not being more precise.)

There:



interesting shot - "EEVblog" spells "Altium" when looked at it in a mirror... thats like vampires being invisible in mirrors? during the last 4 or more years i am following and loving the sydney messiah of the magic smoke, i always thought, there's something spooky about dave - now i know for sure! :-)

anyway - i'll keep being stuck to this...

regards

Spooky!

Did Dave just use the 'magic' within his finger to change the reflection? (perhaps he has absorbed too much of the released 'magic' smoke over the years!)  :wtf:

Perhaps Herr R aus B was right?  :scared:
Reviving my old hobby after retiring! Know so little...only one thing to do...watch Dave's videos and keep reading the forum! ;-)

Everyone knows that glass can be used as a delay line. It just took a bit longer for the text in the glass to catch up!

Nice try Dave, First thing what gave it away is it was to good to be true.

Second, Below!:

How do you see the tags of youtube videos?? I don't see tags there!  ???

I knows this thread is now old, but I use a Chrome extension called "Tags for YouTube™". You can also find them in the page's source code under keywords.

It's NOT a fraud.

He has had to cancel the order/contract for the building, because he discovered that the height of the building is TOO low, for his later planned, equipment survivability from being thrown from the top of the building, test videos.
A rumor is floating about, that he is trying to acquire a new, 300 metre high skyscraper, for later test videos. (N.B. this post may be a joke).

I would have renamed it to "Dave Tower" instead of an EEVBlog logo.... ;)
When you make hardware without taking into account the needs of the eventual software developers, you end up with bloated hardware full of pointless excess. From the outset one must consider design from both a hardware and software perspective.
