In this video:

These boxes were designed in 1972 by Jobs’ close friend and future co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak. The idea to sell them was supposedly Jobs’. The two learned about blue boxes from famed “phreaker” (phone freak/hacker) John “Cap’n Crunch” Draper. (This nickname was alluding to a whistle given away in the 1960s in Cap’n Crunch cereal which produced the perfect tone, 2600 Hz, to allow a person to enter operator mode on AT&T’s phone system. Draper later briefly worked at Apple, even while serving a five year jail sentence for his phreaking escapades.)

  1. Simon is a gremlin in disguise.

    1:52 Jobs looking like Negan

  3. oh god this background and shaven whistler, so glad you guys changed

  4. the cool hacking part: building something that exploits flaws in a system.
    the lame criminal part: making money with it.

    The anatomy of early Apple: Woz, the Hacker and Jobs the petty thief.

  5. Blue box… Phone… Internationally… Was he the doctor?

  6. You didn't even need the box. Some people mastered whistling the right frequency with their lips.

    Richard Branson's (maybe) first job was also illegal – He made and sold bootleg records in his UK stores, Virgin Records.

    He was a prostitute, wasn't he? He was a prostitute.

    So Bill Burrs rants about Steve Jobs are proven correct once again

  13. I'm having a serious Baader-Meinhoff moment with this. I just got to a point in Ready Player One where John Draper gets a mention, then today this is the second video YouTube has gotten to through just autoplaying whatever came up to mention him.

  14. Darrel Jones | July 19, 2018 at 5:25 am |

    When I saw the word "illegal" in the title, then heard a mention of "telephone" at the start of the video, I thought Simon would say Steve Jobs started with a phone sex line. Shows what I know. 😛

  15. Yes, I learned about this too.  Wow, it is amazing what they teach in school.

  16. Gerald Dokka | July 19, 2018 at 6:16 am |

    It's exactly what I thought it was. I've seen Pirates of Silicon Valley.
