What a great innovator.

May I respectfully suggest a minute of "hiss" to commemorate his work . . . .

RIP mr dolby.

From sky news,

 

"To be an inventor, you have to be willing to live with a sense of uncertainty, to work in the darkness and grope toward an answer, to put up with the anxiety about whether there is an answer," Mr Dolby once said.

Gonna have to admit that I didn't realise he was stil with us to start with, cos in my mind I had him much older than 80. Must've only been 30-odd then when he came up with Dolby A. What a legacy though.

With four surround-sound systems, I have more reason than most people to be very grateful for Mr Dolby's lifelong work.
