Surprising it's American made, they normally take the more direct, explosive approach

Today it's a lot easier to disable electronics. Just order Apple/Microsoft/Google to publish a faulty update and voila, every computer, laptop and phone/tablet goes black. It's cheaper, too.

@0:41 a disk is violently ejected. :D
I would suspect the circuits to be deep-fried after that.

And this is just the unclassified part that we can see. The technology which is unveiled to us today, poor civilians that we are, is already "from the past". I can't imagine what they are currently working on in their labs...

That low def video is a fake. If that EMP-like-weapon disabled all the computers how is the video recorder still working?

Well, I was thinking the same. But it might be protected, which should be possible, which means important targets will be protected, which renders this weapon unusable, or, only usable against civilian unprotected targets. Or..?

funny because in war, you want to take out the opposite humans and not their technoligy.

@#1: would you use your newest shit to try to see if you can fry them?
@#3: if it was microsoft, it would go to blue not black ;)
@#7: also at 00:52 he says: it took out the camera's as well, so maybe!
@#11: that was also what went through my mind when i watched the sim

i wonder how many floors were above that one in the video and how far the distance was between the building and the missile

From the link.......

"CHAMP approached its first target and fired a burst of High Power Microwaves at a two-story building built on the test range," said the Boeing statement. "Inside rows of personal computers and electrical systems were turned on to gauge the effects of the powerful radio waves. Seconds later the PC monitors went dark," which marked success. The television cameras that the team had set up to record the test also went off line. Seven targets were hit using the test missile's microwaves."
