..although it's not perfect - recently I was after data on a new
product - I found the press release, but it had no links to the data
sheet - had to hunt elsewhere for it!
I would comment NS and TI for making it easy to find pricing info, but
no-one offers the feature that almost all users would really want -
list in order of PRICE!

- I've lost track of the number of times I've failed to find something
with 'search' but subsequently found it by trudging around. And I'm
only talking about searhing for exact part numbers! How hard can it be
to make this work properly?
