The term black box also refers to any device (usually programming subroutines) where the person is to not consider the mechanism that goes on within the box. It's a device which does its operation as if by magic. Array goes in, double sorted array comes out, nevermind how it works.

Don't know if that idea can apply to flight recorders.
