Daily Disambiguation: Black Box

Thank goodness, after the stock market crash they found the Black Box.  Simply, a black box is any machine in which only the input and the output are accessible.

It is also an Argentinian film, an Italian electronic music group, an English pop band, the name of the Black Sabbath box set, it is also a song by a band from an obscure set of books written in 16th century France - really.  It is also a method of testing and a theory, it's a method of phreaking (which is highly illegal), a whole bunch of geeky stuff like corporations and comic books characters, but the really cool one if that it is one of many nick-names for the Nuclear Football.
