BCD-2000, The Fastest CD-ROM Drive in the World
Monday, July 8, 2002

Today, Boronotronics has announced a new CD-ROM drive that breaks all previous speed records. Clocking in at 2000 times normal CD reading speed, the BCD-2000 CD-ROM drive will have all the other CD-ROM drive manufacturers playing catch-up for years. To achieve these unprecedented speeds, Boronotronics has developed and patented a new CD reading mechanism. Instead of spinning the CD over a stationary laser, the CD is held stationary while the laser spins around. As with any new approach there have been a few drawbacks. So far, only about 10% of the CD can be read by this drive. This is a limitation imposed by the shape of the CD drawer which obscures the other 90% of the CD from view of the moving laser. Also, like a washing machine, the BCD-2000 will occasionally get out of balance and shake loose from its mounting in a violent fashion, potentially harming humans and other small domestic animals. A small price to pay for the latest and greatest. The BCD-2000 CD-ROM Drive is only available for use with the proprietary Boronotronics Interface Technology Channel Hybrid (BITCH) interface. Remember, if you can't interface to your peripherals, you know it's a BITCH.

Boronotronics Backbone Network (BBN)
Sunday, November 2, 1997

Boronotronics proudly unveils a solution to Internet congestion that will handle mankind's need for the 'Net into the next 3 millenia. The first technology, Dynamic Transfer Method, or DTM increases the throughput of any standard networking physical layer by well over several million fold. The controversial new signaling technique requires a several gigawatt repeater every 6 feet, but the results at this point are amazing. "We've traditionally tried to stay within the bounds of the OSI model," stated Chad Mynhier, Director of Networking Stuff, "but this idea was so radical, we had to do it."

In an effort to get this technology out and in use where it matters the most, Boronotronics has taken the unprecedented step of proposing a replacement for the current Internet. Currently dubbed, "Internet B," Boronotronics promises to single-handedly solve every bandwidth problem on the Internet. "Combined with the BRA, this is an unbeatable solution," explained Woof, Director of Marketing, "Particularly in the triple-D cup size."

The Internet B/BBN project is currently tied up in litigation due to a suit filed by Bolt, Beranek and Newman.


Boronotronics Router Appliance (BRA)
August 21, 1997

It slices... It dices... It routes!

Our Networking Products Division is booming this month with new products. The new Boronotronics Router Appliance (BRA) is our next generation router product that includes a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver to enable dynamic naming of routers based on Latitude/Longitude. This allows more efficient Point-A to Point-B routing of Internet traffic. This 12th generation router also includes full support for the currently draft Chad Transfer Mode (CTM) standard pioneered by our Director of Networking Stuff, Chad Mynhier. "ATM uses a small cell so that they can get good performance for "real-time" stuff. Our product goes one step further by using an even smaller 11-byte cell. 10 bytes are used for the header and 7 bits for checksum, so we end up sending one bit of data per cell. This is an acceptable tradeoff when you consider the outstanding real-time performance gains." The BRA is available only in DD and DDD cup sizes.


Boronosynchronous Transfer Method (BTM)
June 9, 1997

Heralded as a new breakthrough in throughput, the currently draft BTM protocol has just been finalized and will be incorporated in several of Boronotronics' products for 3Q97. Critics have commented that the protocol may be far too complex to implement, but most of them had no idea what they were talking about. "This is really fast" reports Chad Mynhier, Director of Networking Stuff for Boronotronics. "I can't believe it's not butter" reports Fabio.
