But youíre right, itís all the bottom line that matters, how short sighted is that.
I think they do still use 'scopes, but they don't have big, long CRT displays like my Tektronix and they don't glow in the dark or keep the workshop warm in winter. Modern scopes probably run from a pair of AA cells and have airy fairy LCD screens with storage so they can replay events. Boooring.
