    Not sure what you mean by this comment. WAAS signals are broadcast from 2 satellites in geosynchronous orbit over the equator. The correction information is generated at various ground stations around North America – but is then up-linked to the WAAS satellites for broadcast.

    I also saw Sparkfun hit #2 on Google Trends.

    I’m sorry too. I was having a bad day and I took your post the wrong way. It seemed you were mocking my observation, but you were just being funny. That’s the problem with these darn internets… you can’t see people’s facial expressions or hear their tone of voice, which is what people rely on for message context. :)
    Anyway, I’m an EE so I totally got the “Jerk-meter” joke. That’s the funniest thing I’ve heard all day! Unfortunately, I don’t think they will actually be selling this part for a while. I think Sparkfun just put this page here to generate interest. Analog.com shows it going into production at the end of August. However, they do show one of the packages being produced by the end of April. We shall see…
    Again, sorry about being a jerk by calling you a jerk. I should make one of those jerk meters too and use it on myself. Then, I could also use it to find my favorite cereal characters Snap, Crackle, and Pop! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jounce)

    Wow, way to be a jerk about your reply. I was merely stating the fact that 5mm is half a centimeter. I was trying to imply that as a sanity check, whoever is making these pictures could look at the ruler and verify it’s in the ballpark. They’re obviously having problems with their process because this happens a lot with new chips.

No public wish lists :(
