Computer America Line-up for 8/22/2011

Hours one and two: Joining Craig and Ben is Woody Feffer. Woody owns and
operates Computer Mechanix, an on-site computer repair business. Woody
is here to lend his expertise on diagnosing computer problems and
answering your questions. We will be focusing on networking and how to
set up a computer network in your home and office!

Hour one: Yamaha. Amplifying the true sound of an acoustic guitar
without top-notch microphones has always presented sonic challenges.
Pickups that come installed on guitars are convenient to use but they
only transmit the strumming of the strings, not the resonance of the
body or the ambient sounds created by string vibrations. And, in a live
setting, amplified acoustic guitars are prone to causing ear-splitting
feedback. Audio engineers at Yamaha think they've conquered the problem
with a proprietary new computer-aided modeling innovation called Studio
Response Technology (S.R.T.), available in its new A Series acoustic
guitars, now shipping. The pickup and preamp built into the A Series
incorporates advanced Digital Signal Processing to provide mic-ed up
sound quality with the help of advanced audio technology.
