Well, looking at how it works, it makes senseBy Andrew Pollack on 12/22/2006 at 09:47 AM EST
If you read further in the site, one of the FAQs points to someone's question
about getting no sound at all. The answer was that if the sensor on the inside

Apparently through some conduction mechanism they are able to determine exactly
when you are speaking and use that information to differentiate your voice from
the outside ambient noise.

Very cool.

This piece of garbage is supposed to be a bearing. It carries the shaft which drives both stages of the auger.
