    Originally I think it came as a set with the rabbit ears and all that junk. (Think “crystal radio set” or a wireless apparatus.)

    Apparatus. What a great word. Plural? Can it be pluralized? Is it apparati? It should be…

    It’s from the Latin through Indo-European, apparently, so I don’t knw why it can’t by apparati.
