Thats why I shared it... no doubt from cookies and google search terms...
When you said they were obsolete I searched them and found where TI was still making them and at least for the 3914 said they were OK for new designs.
for some irony, over on another website where I am a mod, after a day of deleting multiple spammers, pimping viagra or counterfeit movies, the website push advertising asks me if I want to date Russian women? Since I was looking at their spam posts to confirm their intent before deleting their accounts, the advertising AI thinks I was actually interested in the spam.
I suspect my cookies are full of stuff that I searched without intending to buy,,, but I don't mind them wasting their paid click bullets on me.
I also perceive some situational opportunity pricing around the internets... for example I have been looking for some high gluten flour (good for making pizza), the popular cheap brand appears to be out of stock (white Lily), but of course it still show up for sale at 4x or 5x typical prices...
When It's back in surplus the prices will return to normal.
PS: I DVR through 99% of commercials, but it appears even they are getting more targeted by location and to me (old man). One step closer to minority report sci-fi.
