Now *this* is a triumph of science!

Some computer and sound-effect geniuses in California have invented a sort of local cone of silence, called Babble, that can be used to shut out sound from neighboring cubicles, keep a phone conversation private, and the like. It somehow scrambles sounds within its range and feeds them back as a randomized flow. Man, would that improve my life: I am virtually incapable of thought when there is ongoing noise in my vicinity.
