I think HTC's postbot is stuck.
Firenado and oil covered birds and fish.
Dinner and a show!
It it doesn't tell you why it deactivated the noise cancelling feature, then you are left with guessing why.
"That said, I don't think those forces have ever really been allowed to operate to their full extent, for a sufficient amount of time, outside of fictional accounts"
Is the word "monopoly" fictional? That is the end result of non-regulated market forces. Next time you read about a blockbuster M&A just substitute "increased market share" with "reduced competition". And with reduced competition comes less pressure to innovate and improve.
My guess is that Theranos will stop marketing itself as a technologically innovative company. Instead it will try to get funding to compete as a service provider at the national level in hopes of leveraging its name recognition into enough market share to be acquired. The end game of many an entrepreneurial MBA.
Except that now you have to charge two items instead of one.
Amplified headphones tend to be a bit more bulky than ear buds to tote around.
Ear buds are cheaper to lose.
My car stereo has an aux jack but no BT.
If VB were to be open sourced some poor misguided fool might start using it to teach kids how to code in a simple point and click environment when they could be learning how to create responsive web pages! Why bother learning to do it yourself when you can just pull in megabytes of other peoples code to do your left padding!
Will the rice cookers be Bluetooth enabled?
Weren't all those wonderful free trade agreements supposed to make things a big open market?
Apparently it only applies to sellers, not to buyers.
Unless you're like a grandma who's only electronic device besides a TV is her Kindle that she was gifted.
Damn, where are my mod points when I need them!
A couple of years ago we gifted our aging parents with Kindles and they love them!
And yes, the only other technology they own is their TV. No computers, no smartphones, no WiFi.
So what should they do? Find someplace in the sticks with free WiFi and figure out how to connect? Go and side load off a public library computer?
Great options for an 83 yro newbie who doesn't drive.
So I guess Amazon's REAL solution for people like them to access their paid for content will be for us to buy them new Kindles! and BTW, the trade in value for the older models is $0.
Guess we know how Bezos is paying for his space toys.
1.79 x 10^12 furlongs per fortnight -- it's not just a good idea, it's the law!
