PSA for the EEs

Remember people: www.maxim.com will take you to the website of the men's magazine 'Maxim', which seems to make a sport of photographing women with as little clothing as possible without them being naked.

On the other hand, www.maxim-ic.com will take you to the site of the Dallas Semiconductors label 'Maxim', which makes such fine products as the MAX232 level converter or the MAX6954 and MAX6966 PWM'ing LED drivers (which they have graciously agreed to gift me with, so that I may evaluate their utility in my commercial products).

I must lead a sheltered life, becuase I was all 'WTF is this shit!?' when I typed in www.maxim.com and didn't get to the site I was expecting.
