    Anyone have a spare 8 billion laying around?

        Maybe finally I'll be able to get a Kia van with a Studer 827 pre-installed.

          I'm a little short on the 8 billion, but I'd happily split it with you guys...Harman is headquartered about 5 miles from here...I wonder if they'll move?

            I doubt they'll be moving - the article said they're going to keep their current staff, management and facilities.

              I sure hope my C414 mic doesn't catch fire!

              Maybe we'll finally see a Studer app.

              Best,

                Harman stock went up 25% today on the news. Everybody must want an exploding car radio.

                Samsung says Harman will remain a separate entity of which Studer remains a separate entity. If I get hired by Studer, should I hype up Samsung to let us do tape recorders or should I shut my mouth and get some neato discounts on these instead?.... http://www.samsungshi.com/eng/Product/ship_prd01.aspx

                  Tell them to develop a remote control app for the Vista consoles that I can run on my $35 phone. If that doesn't work, convince Samsung mobile device marketing to include USB OTG on all of their devices, not only the high end ones. Wouldh't you like to be able to use a mouse in your car? Or a printer? Or a Focusrite Scarlett recording interface?
