For months now, there's been speculation that researchers might have finally created time crystals — strange crystals that have an atomic structure that repeats not just in space, but in time, putting them in constant oscillation without energy. Now it's official — researchers have just reported in detail how to make and measure these bizarre crystals. And two independent teams of scientists claim they've actually created time crystals in the lab based off this blueprint, confirming the existence of an entirely new phase of matter.
The first known type of non-equilibrium matter and one that is directly related to time. It will be interesting to see what possible uses come of it.

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!
In any formula, constants (especially those obtained from handbooks) are to be treated as variables.
