Fewer loudspeaker companies have anechoic chambers than you realize. They take up an awful lot of space, for one thing. Focal has one, and it has a twist—rather than have a suspended floor, the company puts its speakers on a hydraulic jack and suspends it 30' above the floor. This makes getting massive speakers into and out of the chamber a lot easier and safer.

The Guardian on books on cults and religious extremists. I love any list that calls The DaVinci Code "literary crack cocaine—reading it does you no good at all, but you just can't stop." Actually, I found it easy to put down and hard to pick back up.

Why does a hive's queen act so, um, unladylike? It turns out that's an interesting question—and not the only one.
