In the News Between all this bickering over who's peniphone is the largest best, it's always nice to be able to post a positive story, a story which shows that for every abusive company, there's one that shows the world just how it's done. This time, it's Bose. Founder and primary stockholder of Bose, Amar G. Bose, has donated a large number of non-voting shares of the company to MIT, where he spent his university career. Dividends over these shares will be paid each year to MIT, which will use it for research and educational purposes.

Great Move

That is a great move. I hope that MIT makes the most of it.

I am reminded of a time several years ago when we powered a pair of Bose 901 speakers with 5,400 watts each off of a bridged four channel amp. Amazingly nothing blew and all of the drivers in the speakers still worked great. I think I still hear AC/DC ringing in my ears...
