Hey!

    Found this and thought I would share it with you guys. A great watch about tube from AT&T Archives. Love the animations.

  Here's another one about tube. "Bottle of Magic"

  We are now in 2019, and I'm still amazed that it works! From a simple Edison's light bulb that gave birth to all the electronics we have now. Crazy that someone, De Forest in this case, looking at a simple light bulb and came up with a bright idea that it could be use to amplify.

   There are other interesting films there in AT&T archives also worth check out. It is interesting how things were back then.

It was another era when life seems simpler, look from here now.
For some reason this WE video reminder me from tubes, vinyl and others ancient apparatus that dont exist anymore.
