  • Auto-Tangle

    I figured Apple probably got a patent for this- their earbud cords tangle automatically, no matter how carefully you lay them out and set them down (if you put them in your pocket or a bag, far worse). But, in researching this, there is actually a study on how cables of a certain length tangle. Sort of fascinating, even if it doesn't eliminate the problem. (And, yeah, I had an early generation bluetooth and didn't like that either):

    Sort of like the Watson and Crick of headphones. Next, he'll study the primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary folding patterns of iphone headphones.

      I always liked the stories of inventions of the obvious (which weren't necessarily obvious until they were invented). Hubbell- invented the electrical plug/socket. The Mars guy- -invented -sorta- the commercial candy bar. Liquid Paper (Mike Nesmith of Monkees' fame is an heir). There was an old Preston Sturges era comedy film- with a character who, if memory serves- invented the hot dog. Obviously, lot's of 'weiner' jokes around that- which I guess was risqué for its time.
