Waging the Blue Box Battle

Back in the early 60s, people started figuring out how they could make long distance calls for free.

This was a very big deal back then because long distance calls were very expensive.

Once AT&T which had a monopoly on the phone system figured out what what was going on, they panicked and began illegally recording and listening to millions of phone calls trying to catch the guilt parties.

Had they looked hard enough, they might have caught Apple founders Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs in their snare because as kids they were avid phone phreakers.

Today, we'd jail them and ruin their lives.
