ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the plastic saltcellar Phone-Guard device invented by Paul Korwin and marketed by Eric Cohen. The device can be installed on the regular mouthpiece of a telephone and a red light bulb flashes if somebody is listening on the other side of the line. The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency bought one with the purpose of circumventing it. The invention of the device came when Cohen was annoyed by the children of a girlfriend who practice aural voyeurism whenever he calls her up.
