A San Francisco-based startup has shut down operations, leaving many customers who paid upwards of $139 for a pair of wireless earbuds empty-handed. Like many startups that came before, Kanoa Inc. ran out of capital, according to a statement on its website. But this startup, which one customer called "the Fyre Festival of wireless earbuds," flamed out after two years of promises.

The next wave of wireless cellular tech, called 5G, is misunderstood all around. Although 5G will be at least 20 times faster than 4G wireless (downloads of 20 gigabytes per second), it’s not all about speed. Wireless companies are excited about additional benefits: 1,000 times lower power use in some cases, virtually no delay (as low as a millisecond, vs. 100ms for 4G), and more reliable connections for mission-critical connections like to drones or robot cars. But they might also misunderstand 5G, according to a new analysis by Morgan Stanley, “Learning to Ride a 5G Cycle.” Building 5G systems will cost a fortune (at least $225 billion worldwide), and demand for all those new technologies will take a while to materialize.
