How to use Bluetooth headphones with any device that has a headset port

Like it or not, wired headphones are a dying breed. At least, wired headphones with a 3.5mm jack are. It may be many years from now, but the trend towards “all-wireless-everything” is in full effect, outside of specialist cases where audio quality is absolutely critical.

With that switch, we’ve seen an absolute bonanza of “true wireless earbuds” pop up in recent years. For better or worse, all of them use a Bluetooth connection to keep tunes flowing. Sometimes, as is the case with Apple’s AirPods, there’s a little extra magic thrown in with a custom chip.

But what if you have some old gadgets lying around that don’t have Bluetooth built in? Whether you, like me, are still holding onto your aging Zune collection, or you just want to add some wireless audio to an old stereo, there’s no

ProBeat: Hey Elon Musk, how do I get this Neuralink out of my skull?

Elon Musk-backed Neuralink shared a progress update late last week on its brain-computer interface. The implantable hardware platform was shown working in a pig named Gertrude. When Gertrude touched an object with her snout, neurons captured by Neuralink’s technology (which had been embedded in Gertrude’s brain two months prior) fired in a visualization on a television monitor. Musk asserted that someday the company would be able to embed a Neuralink device in a human brain, in under an hour, without using general anesthesia.

“You open a piece of skull,” Musk said. “You remove a coin-sized piece of skull. And then the robot inserts the electrodes. Then the device replaces the portion of skull that was removed. And we basically close that up with actually super glue, which is how a lot of wounds are closed. And then you can just walk around right afterwards. It’s pretty cool.”

UN chief appeals for global solidarity at General Assembly, warns coronavirus is ‘dress rehearsal’ for challenges ahead

United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres

UNITED NATIONS, Sep 22 (APP): UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Tuesday appealed for global solidarity to overcome coronavirus, and again call for a global ceasefire during the pandemic, by the end of the year.

In his centerpiece address to the historic 75th session of the UN General Assembly, Guterres characterized the pandemic from the podium as “not only a wake-up call” but “a dress rehearsal” for challenges to come.

“In an interconnected world, it is high time to recognize a simple truth: solidarity is self-interest. If we fail to grasp that fact, everyone loses”, he said, delivering his annual report on the work of the Organization in a largely empty hall of the 193-member Assembly where social distancing was maintained because of the ongoing pandemic.

The Secretary-General underscored the need for solidarity at this moment, particularly as countries least capable to address COVID-19 have received far too little assistance. He
